We happily welcomed Hilda Rose (Hildy) into the family on May 7th at 10:41 p.m. After a long and difficult labor that resulted in an emergency C-section, Hildy was immediately whisked away from Mom, to Sacred Heart Children's Hospital in Spokane. Doctors determined there that she has Pierre Robin Sequence which includes a cleft palate and retrognathia. Basically, she cannot eat on her own and has a compromised airway. Her conditions will require surgery and an extended stay in the NICU. Doctors and specialists are still evaluating her condition but she has the greatest care possible and is doing well according to her care team.
Please keep Hildy, Sarah, and Dean in all in your prayers as they navigate this healing process.
Dean & Sarah were graciously gifted an apartment at the Ronald McDonald House in Spokane, to be used as long as needed.
