THIS entire family, along with many friends maxed credit cards to pre-pay for health care, c-section, air flight to save Poppy Elizabeth ..
They funds collected to date mainly have been used to repay this.

WHEN... Poppy was born three and a half months premature in Mexico the doctor stressed to us she had three days of something she referred as the “honeymoon period”. It meant Poppy would not run into major complications for a few days and we could figure out how to get her to the states. That put a lot of pressure on us.

We lived in LA and that was where Poppy and my wife had insurance coverage. It made the most sense to us to try to fly her there for care. Maggie spent many hours on calls with her insurance company doing her best to stress the nature of the situation. They bounced her around from extension to extension and made things extra impossible for us to ensure an air evacuation. They tried to send us a regular airplane without physicians and our doctor caught that when she called them to make sure they were sending the correct plane. The insurance contracted a Mexican plane with the right equipment and personnel that we felt confident could do the job. Our prayers had been answered and Poppy could be in LA in a day and a half. We breathed a little easier and felt relieved that was happening.

The company called us two hours before departure and informed us there was a landing gear malfunction and they couldn’t come. Insurance had failed us multiple times. Me,my wife her aunts and father were in the room when that news came in and you could feel the hope just leave out all at once. We all panicked. My wife cried and we just felt we were out of options. The doctor came in and handed my wife a list of people with planes and helicopters that served the west coast and when my wife called a few they responded. “Lady I can’t fly emergency missions to Mexico”

It was then that I entered the small little bathroom in the hospital room that i dropped to my knees and with tears in my eyes and cried out. “God show me your will for this baby. Show us where you want us to go”

I promise you not thirty seconds after i walked outta that bathroom the doctor asked to speak with me in the hallway where she said. “I know a doctor in Miami.” I stopped her right there and immediately said “go now and please call them” i knew from the moment i heard Miami that that was where gods will was.

I walked back into the room with my family and announced “Poppy is going to Miami” My wife responded with “Miami? How will we do that? She’s not covered there and it’s so far from our home.” I said i don’t know but that’s what we’re going to do.

So here we are today in Miami. Poppy is doing well!

Poppy still critical but stable. Tomorrow will be a big day for her. They think she is able to breath on her own. They will remove the tube that runs to her lungs and install a nose mask that will assist breathing. We hope things go well with that and she’ll be closely monitored throughout process. She is getting another blood transfusion tonight and won’t get nutrition tomorrow. They will be reinstalling the pick line that will replace the embryonic vein line. They had trouble with the first one and took it out. We need prayers for her tomorrow because it sounds like we’ll all be in for an eventful day. Thank you everyone.
Continue being our Hero Little Poppy

UPDATED POST... I want everyone out there reviewing this campaign to first of all know that this family did not ask for a GO FUND ME ACCOUNT!!
Anyone that knows this family is aware they GIVE, GIVE, GIVE, and ask for nothing in return.
I started this Campaign because Jeremy played a large part in saving my sons life along with SOBA Recovery.
With that said the tables have turned...
In my world we pay it forward, we do NOT shoot our wounded, we keep our side of the street clean, we love God and HELP OTHERS!
Update to All- God Bless all of you that have donated and said prayers! We are going to make it to our Goal and we are going to keep this page POSITIVE and GOD FILLED!!
