Just imagine thinking you are done having kids and you get the news that your expecting again to find out not only one, but 3!!! No fertility drugs either! So your small family of 4 turns into a large family of 7 quickly! Levi Nelson and Amber Ertley had beautiful identical triplet girls on Saturday Feb. 20th. The babies are doing good and healthy, weighing in at 4lbs each. The unthinkable turned towards Amber as her health went down during the C-section. Amber died twice after the 3rd baby came out. She also had to have a blood transfusion because she bled out. Her condition was extremely scary for everyone. With what happen to her, everyone couldn't believe she made it. I believe that God has been watching over her closely knowing it is not her time to go, her babies need her!
     I started this GoFundMe account to help with anything needed. Levi has been by Ambers side and has missed a lot of work. He will also have to take the first week off when they get back home to help Amber and the babies.  Amber will be going home with a lot of medication and she will also have home health come visit twice a week.  Amber needs time to improve her health and the last thing she needs to worry about is bills and paying for medical necessities.
     It is tax refund time and I am asking you to donate what you can. Skip one night going out to eat and give to a family that is in very much need. Also, I am asking that you please keep all of them in your prayers, this is going to be a major change to them all! Levi, Amber, Lilly, Josey, Norah, Rylan & Remi... we love y'all!!!

Amber here, mother of the amazing identical triplet girls. I want to thank everyone for all the donations and all the prayers. We have strong healthy amazing 8 month old girls. Teo older sisters love them like they were here the whole time! We are doing pretty great. I still go once a month now to coumain clinic. Doc will do a CT in 4 months to check on the clot in my lungs. I will update everyone on that when the time comes. We are a strong family of 7. ♡♡

I just want to say WOW at all the nice caring people in this world! We have raised over $9k and more just keeps coming in! Please continue to keep Amber in your prayers, she still has a large blood clot on her lungs! They are trying to get rid of it with medication and many doctor visits, which she is having to pay out of pocket for this and your donations are helping tremendously! Amber and Levi thank each and every one of you that have gave to the fund, sent packages and most of all for the prayers! Keep them coming!!!

I will be making a cash donation but would also like to donate to the diaper shortage I'm sure you'll be experiencing soon. I have a cousin in Alabama that I could probably ship them to and hopefully she can deliver them. Please send me a private message on FB and let me know if there is something other than diapers you'd prefer.

This family is a good friend of my cousin and her family. Please pray for all of them. Pray that the babies health stays strong and pray for Peace for this family. Peace that their babies will be ok and peace that they don't have to worry about their finances from medical expenses, growing their family by 3 new babies. My son is now 19, and his sitter gave birth to triplets in 2009; 3 healthy girls! Luckily they had a huge support team. If you can't donate $, any you know this family, a meal or a few hours of your time so the parents can rest or run errands, a weeks worth of diapers/wipes, etc., means more than you will ever know.

Touches my heart. Identical. Can't tell my twin granddaughters apart. Do you resort to labels with magic markers?
