I don’t… normally do this ever but this is too important to let alone. My baby sister Valeia will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. In less than two weeks, she has had to be rushed to the hospital and admitted into the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit twice. She has this problem where she will stop breathing, usually after eating, for varying amounts of time. The first time it happened she was barely home from the hospital after her birth for an hour. She turned completely blue in my arms and my mother had to aspirate her own baby. The doctors assumed it was fluid in her lungs and an isolated incident, and so sent her home after four days in the hospital.
This second time, she stopped breathing for a full minute. We now believe it has something to do with her esophagus or that it’s a rare neurological disorder, but we have no answers. We just know that it keeps happening.
We don’t require donations at all. I would just ask for prayers, good vibes, positive thinking, whatever it is that you as an individual do. Support goes a long way and makes a difference, this is something I firmly believe, and my sister needs as many people rooting for her as she can get right now.
