Barbaras lost her smile
Organized by: Jessica Hughes
My little sister is the best mom. Koda was born November of 2014. He was born with a lot of problems. Mainly without soft spots in his skull. We knew right away that surgery would be necessary when he got a few months older. But what we didnt expect was for him to quit breathing at 4 weeks old! Christmas Eve he became unresponsive. My son and my Sister had to give him CPR until the first responders came. They had to bag him all the way to the hospital. There a team of wonderful doctors and nurses went to work to put my 4 week old nephew on a ventilator. This last year it has been a lot of trips in and out of the hospital. 10 hospital stays a total of 6 weeks in icu 2 skull surgeries and ventalated 3 times. Apnia montitors and lots of testing and Sleepless nights. He still in need of a lot of medical attention. Nothing life threating any longer. He has to do physical therapy and speach therapy. He is behind because of months in a hospital bed. I tell you all if this because it give you the reason why I am setting up this account. My sister has been unable to work most of this time. She has been attending collage on line since she found out she was pregnant with him and will soon graduate with her BS in Business Management. She and the boys have been staying with me. I have been able to provide them with the necessities like a house, electricity, water, food and so on but I can not fix her teeth. They have been going bad for some time now. The last 3 weeks she has been unable to eat solid food. She is so close to being able to take care of herself and children but feels like she will not be able to get a job in the career she has gone to collage for without the smile to go with it. So I am asking for help for her. Any little bit will help. Thank you all in advance for reading this.
