#PrayersforAllie

Allison Gabrielle Guidry born 10/26/14 at 2lbs 2ozs. She's been a very strong little angel and has fought hard for her life since the day she was born. Just shortly after she got to go home on January 8, 2015 she stopped breathing and was in the hospital fighting for her life. The power of faith and prayer always works and God saw her through and 4 weeks later she got to go home. That wasn't the end of her battles, but she has a STRONG support system who fights right along side of her. On July 25, 2016 Allie was diagnosed with HIE (Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy) which a brain injury caused by oxygen deprivation to the brain. Allie also has Cerebral Palsy. Oxygen deprivation, or intrapartum asphyxia, can cause Cerebral palsy which is a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone, or posture. Allie is a strong beautiful little girl with a smile that could light up a room. Wednesday May 31, 2017 the ambulance was called to the home because Allie wasn't looking like herself not knowing what happened the first though was maybe she had a seizure in her sleep. Her temperature got as high as 106 and her blood pressure was also very high. We found out she has an infection called c-diff, which is an infection in the stools. She's on a couple different antibiotics, oxygen and fluids. June 1, 2017 She was on 100% oxygen and is now down to 70%. She is still on 3 different blood pressure medicines. She had to get plasma, but no longer needs anymore blood. Her platelets dropped so she needed a transfusion. The doctor said that if she does not wake up within the next 24 hours or so, her brain can swell. Allie has a small brain and she also has cysts on her brain. Her brain wont grow any bigger so if it were to swell, in her situation it could work in her favor because she does have room for swelling, but we also don't want that to happen. Her cat scan showed a little bleeding in the brain but the one from today didn't, which isn't common so the doctor is going to get a specialist to look at it. Also there will be a specialist to look at her heart. They will also start her on feedings. With all of that the doctor said.. "Honestly, she is on so much support, we could lose her at any moment." This is all a very difficult situation and Chelsea (Allie's mother) has been fighting this battle with her baby since day one. Chelsea is a single mother who works VERY hard to take care of her daughters and she makes sure they are very well taken care of. Many could only imagine that none of this is easy at all and Chels is doing the best that she can. Focusing on work, while receiving news like this shouldn't be an extra burden. Any amount donated will be greatly appreciated to help Chelsea, Mady, & Allie. If you can't donate money please help by keeping Allie lifted up in prayer. When God is in it, it's not over. #PrayersforAllie
