On June 22, 2019, after an uneventful evening with family and friends, then 7 week old Felicity Warren turned blue while in her father's arms. She was rushed by ambulance to an Arizona Children's Hospital, where she has remained ever since.  While at intake, the cause of her "episode" was thought to be a simple one common in early childhood, she has suffered additional, more severe episodes while in the hospital and a month later, she remains in the ICU, in much more critical condition. 

She has multiple medical conditions that continue to elude her medical team as to their cause or best treatment plans. She has suffered a heart attack and stroke and for reasons still unknown, her heart rate and oxygen saturation rates drop without warning. Her doctors describe her as a "puzzle." They have never seen the combination of presentations that Felicity has. One doctor described her as the sickest patient in their hospital. She has damage to her heart, brain, and spleen, and her kidneys are struggling. Because her condition still has yet to be diagnosed, it's unknown how long she will continue to be in the hospital. She is currently listed in "critical but stable" condition.

Their family, friends, and church family have rallied around them with provision of meals, childcare, and hospital companionship. We now have the opportunity to bless them with financial support.

Along with enormously mounting medical bills, her family also faces the financial costs of lost income incurred while being at their daughter's bedside instead of at work. When she has been stable enough, her dad has continued to go to work, as well as hold down the fort at home with their other 5 children.

In addition to the financial burden alreay incurred, it is likely that she will be transferred to a leading Children's Hospital in another state. Her dad will stay here, which means travel expenses for visits to and from the other state will be incurred, and her mom will travel with Felicity, which means she will incur costs for housing, food, and transportation away from home.

Lastly, once she is able to finally come home, her recovery will be slow, costly, and limiting of her parents' employment availability.

Felicity's parents are people of faith and they trust in the God who created Felicity to orchestrate His perfect plan for her life. The humbly request that you join them in prayer for their sweet girl, as well as for the rest of their family.

About the Unicorn EKG image: in the early days of her hospitalization, a doctor explained that part of what made her care difficult was that when you hear hoofbeats, you look for horses, not zebras, but she's one of the few who IS a zebra. A friend remarked that she was far too pretty to be a zebra. She's a beautiful, rare unicorn. While looking for something to make to brighten her hospital room, I found the image above online and thought it was perfect for her and her rare heart. The image is used with permission from the artist.

I (the fundraiser coordinator) am Felicity's Godmother. The account is listed in my name so that her parents would not have to leave their daughter to go to a bank to set up an account. Any money received will be given directly to the family to use for medical care, living expenses, and travel to and from the hospital(s).

Dear Kim and Rob, We love you so much, and we love Felicity too! Praying for the Lord to guide the doctor's and all responsible for her care, as He gently holds her in His hands.

Update #4
September 9, 2019, 10:06 pm

Thank you to everyone who continues to pray and to give.

Felicity had another episode last week which resulted in a code being called. They were able to stabilize her and today, she was extubated again successfully. This was her first "episode" in Texas, so now the doctors have been able to see first hand what is happening to her. We are praying this leads to some answers. It does look like this newest episode will extend their time in Texas so the financial support is even more helpful.

Unrelatedly, and unexpectedly, Kim's dad passed away last week. Please add her grief and comfort to your list of prayers for the family.

An update on giving: The banking information has been updated and all gifts now drop directly to the Warren bank account. All previously collected money has been given to them. The notification emails still come to Jen so that those who want to give anonymously still can. The Warrens are not shown who gives unless people choose to be identified.

Lastly: Kim keeps a journal on Felicity's Medical progress on CaringBridge. If you do not have the link and want it, please leave your email address and I will send the link to you.

Thank you for lifting up this precious family.

Update #3
July 29, 2019, 6:13 pm

Felicity arrived safely in Houston on Friday and the doctors have spent the weekend trying to "get to know her." This hospital has many subspecialities so instead of meeting with a Cardiologist, she's been seen by many Cardioligists, who each specialize in a different area of the heart or kind of afflition. In addition, she's being cared for by other specialists for her other areas of ailment as well. There is quite a lot of data from the Arizona hospital for them to review as they try to put her puzzle together.  We have great hope that with the expanded amount of care providers, someone will be able to diagnose her and create a care plan. Please continue to pray for Felicity and her family, as well as for her medical team. Thank you!

Update #2
July 26, 2019, 2:21 am

Felicity has been accepted both medically and adminstratively to the leading hospital in the country for the areas of specialty needed for her care. We are thankful to God for making this way clear. We are praying that with a medical team triple in size with many specialists in her fields of need, someone will recognize what is happening to her and know how to treat it.

Transfer will happen as soon both a bed and the medical airplane are available, which will hopefully be within the next few days. Please pray that Felicity would remain stable throughout the transfer. Typically, any disruption threatens the stability of her vitals, and they have plans to heavily sedate her in attempts to try to prevent this.

Mom will go with Felicity and Dad will stay here with the other children. Please pray for the family, especially the other kids, as they adjust to living apart for an indefinite amount of time.

Update #1
July 25, 2019, 4:04 pm

Thank you to everyone who has given financially and to everyone who has offered their prayers for the family.

The transfer out of state is becoming more and more likely, and could happen as soon as this weekend. Doctors here are trying to make Felicity stable enough for transport, and the two hospitals are trying to coordinate with each other and with their insurance company for the logistics of transit and care. The family requests prayers that the path to transfer would be made clear, or that if it is not God's will, that it would be clearly shut down. The out of state hospital is number one in the country for Felicity's areas of concern, so they are prayerful that it would be God's will for her to move.
