Timothy Matthew Micro Preemie born 12/22/2020

From Laura Loewenhagen

I am raising money for my son and daughter in law, Matt and Ari, to cover medical expenses for their son, my grandson, Timothy Matthew. He was born on 12/22/20 just under 28 weeks at 2 lbs 14-1/2 oz and 14” long.

More Info

Ari’s pregnancy was not an easy pregnancy. She had two chronic Abruptions which were diagnosed early in her pregnancy.  She was on bed rest from home but when her water broke at just over 26 weeks, she was admitted to the hospital.  The goal was to get her to somewhere between 32-34 weeks but Timothy had other plans.  She gave birth (c-Section) to Timothy Matthew on 12/22/2020. They tried many options to stop him coming so early but Timothy was bound and determined to meet his mom and dad. He was 2 lbs 14-1/2 oz and 14" long.  He was immediately admitted to the NICU at Children’s Hospital Fox Valley and will be there for the next few months. 

I am raising money to help them cover their medical expenses for the birth and care for Timothy while he is in the NICU. Being that he was born in December, they will have two deductibles that they will have to meet - 1 for 2020, and then again in 2021. Each deductible is $6500, then they have to cover 20% of the medical bills up to their maximum out of pocket of $12,000 which will be for both years as well. They also have daily expenses of going back and forth to the hospital each day so money for gas will also be covered in this campaign. 

They have committed that this money will only be used for paying the medical bills for Timothy.  If they are blessed with more than they need they will be donating the remaining to Children's Hospital Fox Valley - NICU
