On September 11th, 2017 my best friend Macarena gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. His due date was December 17th, 2017 but due to complications in utero, he was delivered by emergency C-section at just 26 weeks. Baby Dominic was just 1.2 lbs and had stopped growing in the womb at only 23 weeks. He spent the remaining year at NYU Winthrop University hospital in the NICU where he received upstanding care. Since birth, he has been on the strongest ventilators for a fighting chance at survival. Due to complications with his lymphatic system, he began swelling to extreme levels and Winthrop decided to transfer baby Dominic to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. After many tests, the Doctors performed a lymphatic procedure. Dominic began to feel better however, due to several infections, recently took a turn for the worse. Hi blood pressure plummeted and he has been receiving round the clock care to keep his heart rate and vitals stabilized. He has been in critical condition for over a week and the Doctors say there is nothing else they can do.
Please help support my best friend and her family going through these troubling times. She finally agreed to create a Go Fund Me once the doctors delivered the traumatic news that Dominic only has a very slight chance at survival. She would like to be prepared for whatever God has planned.
