Asher was born six weeks early. He has some medical complications & will need to have an extensive stay in the NICU. I'd like to take some of the financial burden away from his parents so they can focus on baby only!
Asher David was born September 15, 2021. He was delivered through an emergency c-section after doctors determined he was not strong enough to endure a natural labor and needed to be delivered as soon as possible. Asher came into this world weighing 4 pounds 7 ounces and was 18 inches long. Due to arriving early and being born with pneumonia he was put on a ventilator to help him breathe. The nurses tried to put an IV in him to feed him as well, but his veins were too tiny for that. He ended up getting a tube placed in his umbilical cord to help him get the fluids and food he would need. He was also born unable to regulate his body temperature and with jaundice.
He is just now recovering from the pneumonia. He has been taken off the ventilator and is now on a C-Pap machine. He has had swelling on his eyes and head off and on since he was born, but we believe he is getting stronger and better with each day.
Asher will most likely need to stay in the NICU for another 5 weeks (until around his due date) or until he is healthy enough to go home.
This is my brother and sister-in-law's first child. As new parents, they have enough to worry about without worrying about how they will be able to financially cover this long hospital stay. If you can help in any way, I know they would be forever grateful!
Thank you and please continue to keep Asher in your thoughts and prayers.
Update: Asher has been on and off oxygen and has still been using a feeding tube for the last month. He is finally starting to eat enough on his own that he doesn't have to be on a feeding tube. He is also finally breathing on his own so he doesn't need oxygen. If you are able, please help Taylor and Liz as Asher has been in the hospital for over a month at this point.
