Hello, our names are Sydney and Skylar. Our mommy's name is Lynn. We are coming very soon and need your help to ensure our health, safety and comfort. We are very much loved by our mommy and daddy, but mommy has been very ill. Early last year our mommy learned she had a rare condition called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which led to a severe herniated disc in her spine crushing spinal nerves leading to a conditon called Cauda Equina Syndrome, inability for her to feel the bottom half of her body. Because of this our mommy had to have emergency spinal surgery called a Lumbar Fusion. Sometime during the surgery, or during initial recovery, a small puncture formed in her spinal cord... which lead to a dangerous spinal fluid leak. Again she had to undergo emergency surgery to repair this life threatening leak, but also perform a Lumbar laminectomy on the disc pushed out by the fluid. If this was not enough... our mommy got very sick, having severe difficulty healing from the surgeries and ended up with sepsis. She had to undergo another surgery just to take out all the initial hardware from her spine and replace it. You would think that this would be enough for one person to undergo, but not a month later she landed in the hospital with blood clots in her arm and her lungs. Throughout all of this recovery our mommy was diagnosed with a rare heart condition coupled with the spinal condition known as Ankylosing Spondylitis. All of these surgeries and conditions have left significant medical debt and complicated recovery.
Our mommy and daddy were very excited to hear that we were coming, but there have been many health complications during the time we've been growing and it has caused us not only to nearly lose our home, which has been threatened with forclosure, but also made it difficult to have all the necessary items we need to begin our lives on the right track. Please help our mommy and daddy keep their home and give us and our brothers and sisters everything we need to live happy and normal lives!!!
