More Info

Hello all. As many of you know, Thalia gave birth to a beautiful baby boy last Wednesday 2/9/2022. The last two weeks of her pregnancy were rough, she was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia. Unfortunately, her elevated blood pressures became critical enough that she had to be induced in order to ensure the safety of both her and Braylon. During delivery she had a couple elevated blood pressures that were very concerning. She was administered blood pressure meds while pushing and immediately after birth she was put on a 24-hour magnesium drip in order to prevent any possibility of seizures. She was moved to a post-partum critical care area and was not able to come home till Saturday afternoon. James was pretty much awake for 72 hours tending to both her and the baby as the side effects of the magnesium prevented Thalia from being able to get out of bed.

After coming home on Saturday, she was required to monitor her blood pressures at home, and they were fine the first day. Then on Sunday they started elevating again and by Monday morning she was having critically high readings and had to be readmitted to critical care where her, James and little Braylon are now.

Thalia has a long recovery road ahead of her and must be on bed rest until her body regulates(6+weeks) in order to keep those pressures down and reduce her risk of stroke, seizures, or God forbid something worse. 

I am creating this fundraiser since these complication were not part of their plan. James will have to take more time off of work than he planned, and Thalia will not be able to return to work as soon as she thought. They did a wonderful job tucking money away for their maternity leave and might be ok the rest of this month but will for sure be tight next month. Please help me take the stress of all of this away so that my daughter can heal and so that James can be home and take care of her and my adorable grandson. Any little bit will help them with bills, groceries, prescriptions, etc. and give my daughter the relief she needs in order to get well.
