Hello all you beautiful people. I'm reaching out for help.
A month ago my dear friend Vickie (who is one of the happiest and warmest people I have ever met) and her wife Melanie welcome their little girl into this world. She was early. Too early. Tavi was born at just 25 weeks gestation - she is known as a "micro-preemie". Her gestation fell into this gray area between non-viable and an age where all hospitals would give her a fighting chance. It has been so scary for her moms and heart wrenching for all of us following her story.
Tavi has been a fighter from day 1 - she's worked through milestones, opened her beautiful eyes and has even gained weight. Things were looking up. But two days ago my friends received the news that though Tavi looks perfect and seemed to be gaining strength, she's been having seizures 75-100 times a day that aren't responding to medication and are damaging her little brain. They are seeking second opinions and having the hardest conversations any of us, I can imagine, will ever have.
Their friend started a GoFundMe to raise a small amount of money so that we can do whatever we can to allow them to just focus on Tavi and each other for a while. If you have any spare change, please consider sending it their way. Or if you can't give, please share the word. XOXO <3http://www.gofundme.com/xc7pxk
