Reed's Saving Grace

Our dearest friends Jake and Melissa Reed have been through a lot the past few months. Although they have been preparing to be first time parents, no one could be prepared for what they are going through & we want to do everything we can to help.

Here is a post from Melissa with details:
This past month has been extremely heart wrenching as well as emotional & physically draining. After having a cerclage surgery on 6/28 I was put on bedrest. We found out 7/20 that the twins had TTTS (twin twin transfusion syndrome) and TAPS. On 7/25 I then had Laser surgery for TTTS & TAPS. The surgery went well & the twins were cured of TTTS and TAPS. In the early morning of 7/27 I went into labor & had a c-section. After labor I had more complications & had to have another surgery. 

On Thursday 7/27/17 @ 6:13AM Carson Jacob Reed & Corbin Jacob Reed were born. We lost one of our angels, Corbin Jacob shortly after. Even though he didn't have time to leave fingerprints on the walls, he made fingerprints on our hearts. 

Right now Carson is in the NICU & doing well but he has a long fight ahead of him. I know that his brother Corbin is watching over him giving him the strength that he needs as well as Jake & myself. 

We appreciate everyone's comfort & strength for us during this time.
As their friends, we want to set them up so they do not have to stress about all of the necessities and instead focus on spending time with their precious baby boy Carson as he continues his stay in the NICU.

We thank you all for your love, your donations, and your support as they go through this.
