Supporting Baby Maverick With Savanah and Steven

Campaign Created by: Lorie Pruitt

The funds from this campaign will be received by Savanah Reece.

Goal: USD $5,000
Raised: USD $ 700

Maverick was born 2/16/2024 not breathing due to lack of oxygen at birth and started having seizures he was transferred by helicopter to Kosairs Children Hospital in Louisville Ky. He was intubated and put on medication and continuously monitored. They were able to do MRI that shows damage to the right side of his brain. This controls function to the left side of his body. It could affect his vision speech and movements. They have explained it as Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) The hospital has started therapeutic touches and are reducing meds that have kept him sedated. At this time we are requesting prayers on his behalf. Steven and Savanah have been fortunate to stay at the Ronald McDonald House close to the hospital. Savanah is nursing and will continue to be close. At this time we don’t know how long his stay will be or what his little body will require to recover. We have set up this page to collect funds to help with cost for food, gas to travel from to hospital and for any medical expenses for the baby. I have listed an amount but any amount you can spare to help them along this journey is much appreciated by this family and will be used for the aid of Maverick

Maverick had a good day he was breast feed and took 48 ml. and the other 6 ml. by bottle. Then speech therapy came in and he took 60 ml. by bottle in 15 minutes time. So speech therapy is done other than them checking in on him to see how he's doing. As of today as long as he's awake he will be taking his feeds by bottle.
