Prayers&Financial Help for Emmerson

26522326_1514400754.8018_funddescriptionOn November 29th, 2017 at 5:23am Brooklyn and Nathaniel welcomed their beautiful daughter into their life. Unexpectedly Tuesday, December 26th their daughter Emmerson woke up with what they thought was a belly ache. They became concerned when they seen how distended and hard her stomach was and how lethargic she was. They took her to Grace Hospital where the staff quickly began working on her. They intubated her there and issued a sepsis protocol because they believe she had a infection internally at her umbilical cord site. Due to the severity of the infection they air lifted her to Mission Hospital Pediatric ICU where she is currently on a ventilator to help her breathe. Emmerson is a fighter and is breathing quite a bit on her own. Emmerson is receiving three antibiotic along with other medications. Yesterday they were told Emmerson would be hospitalized for at the very least 2 weeks. Brooklyn is currently on maternity leave with a very tight budget like most moms during that time. This is a unexpected expense that we do not want her to have to worry about. We want all of her concentration on her daughter getting well. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Please pray for this family.
