We are starting this gogetfunding account for our 25 weeks of gestation, baby girl, Ludmilla Kim. On July 28, 2018, I have given birth prematurely to our rainbow baby (baby born after the loss of a previous baby due to miscarriage) weighing only 680grams. My OB Gyne tried her best to extend the delivery at least 27 weeks of gestation for my baby to have a higher rate of survival, however due to amniotic fluid leakage and incompetent cervix (because of induced labor I had from my previous miscarriage, my cervix weakens), I have to deliver my baby, luckily via NSD even my baby is in breech position. I know that very moment my baby will no longer survive but when I recovered from labor the nurses happily told me that my baby is okay but since she's a premature, she needs to be in Neonatal ICU.
My husband and I really don't know what to feel or say but we are so blessed and thankful that our little Kimmy is alive. But no parents will get used to the pain seeing your tiny little one fighting hard for her life day after day. There are times that we are getting confused on what to pray for, if we will ask her to fight more or to surrender if she can't bear the pain anymore. But seeing her fight for her life every single day makes us realize that who are we to give up when this tiny body that weighs less than a kilo keeps on fighting. It is emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially draining. Our weekly hospital bill is averaging from P100,000 ($2,000). After she conquered jaundice, she is now battling for neonatal apnea (stops breathing for at least 10 seconds while sleeping) and neonatal RDS (respiratory distress syndrome). She is also scheduled for several x-rays and other test for possible complications.
We have nearly exhausted our savings and emergency funds to sustain her needs. Our outstanding hospital bill has exceeded our family's financial capability and Kimmy is expected to stay for 2-3 months or more at the NICU. As our hospital bill is increasing each day, we are humbly asking for your assistance to help our little fighter, Kimmy. Please pray for her complete healing so we can bring her home.
Please feel free to share this campaign on your Facebook and other social medias. You can also like and share the Facebook page created for her.
Thank you for your prayers and your generosity. May God return the blessings to you and to your family a million-fold.
