Help for Erinn Leigh

$810 of $700 goal

Raised by 22 people in 5 months
Hello! My daughters name is Erinn Leigh. Her Menominee name is “Wapakenukiw” or “White Eagle Woman.” She is a crazy, funny,  fashionista, and most of all she’s kind. She is extremely sick. My name is Chelsea and her father is Edwin. She also has a little one year old sister named Zoila. Erinn is our fire cracker! She is very sick and we just need help to make sure she gets well. 

On Saturday November 10th, 2018 Erinn began to have a slight fever. She complained of being tired and her belly hurting. The following day, November 11th she got worse. She began to get a rash that spread from her chest to the tips of her toes and fingers. Her fever spiked to 104.1 degrees and she was rushed to the emergency room. 
The emergency room PA said she had a urinary tract infection and was put on antibiotics. 

On Tuesday November 13th she wasn’t doing any better. Actually worse! She began having a red tongue and swollen lips, hands, and feet. We were told she may have “Kawasaki Disease” but wasn’t given a  definitive diagnosis. She was then sent home. 

Later ER that night, she was brought to the Emergency room again because she spiked a fever of 102.7 and she was listless. The same thing happened, we were told she has a virus and it would pass. 

Wednesday November 14th, she was seen by a pediatrician. This visit was different. Erinn was extremely sick, swollen, and dehydrated. She was itchy from the rash that had now spread to every inch of her body. She was finally given the definitive diagnosis of Kawasaki Disease. She is now going to be admitted for a while in the hospital while she is being treated and monitored. 

Kawasaki Disease can be dangerous. It effects the vessels of your heart ❤️ so Erinn will be going thru a lot of testing including an  Electrocardiogram. She has had the disease for 5 days so she is at higher risk for  ventricular  damage. Erinn will be at Bellin Memorial Hospital until all the testing is done. Once we get all that done she will probably be sent to Children’s in Milwaukee or Madison. 

We we are asking for any help! My husband and I are both taking time off work and are low on funds. We are also trying to take care of our One year old daughter Zoila Warrington. We would appreciate any help with travel costs and money for food. 

Waewaenen (Thank You)! With love,
Chelsea, Edwin, Zoila, and especially Erinn Leigh.

Erinn is finally home!!! She’s doing OKAY. She does have to see a cardiologist next week and she will be seeing her pediatrician every week for the next few weeks. She has been experiencing peeling of her skin on her hands, feet, and body. This is normal for KD. She is also experiencing some skin and joint pain. Also, she has had a couple low grade fevers.
We are praying this all goes away soon! We want to say thank you to everyone who has donated! We can’t express how grateful we are! Our girl has a ways to go but she’s been a fighter!✊❤️

Update! Erinn has been moved to a larger room. This time they want her to go 48 hrs without a fever. If she has a fever within the 48 hrs, her daddy and I will have to sit with the doctor to discuss other options of treatment. Please keep prayers coming! I believe the Creator will protect my girl. She’s strong and resilient! We thank everyone who has donated or given encouragement! We appreciate the love and prayers!❤️ Thank you! #KawasakiAwareness #KDSucks

PS We are still asking for any help. Food, money for gas, and to help with Zoila. Edwin and I are off work and will continue to be until Erinn is better. Anything helps! Waewaenen! Thank you!

We thought she was getting better! However, Erinn spiked a fever of 102.2 meaning she is going to have to have another round of the intravenous immunoglobulin. This immunoglobulin comes from plasma and it’s very important for the treatment of Kawasaki Disease. She is fighting hard! My husband and I have taken even more time off because she will need to go two days without a fever. She most likely won’t get out until later next week. Please keep her in my prayers and if you can help us that would be amazing. Thank you to all the donors we’ve had! You’re amazing and we love you!
