  • If you don't go- who will go with her? Certainly they expect her to have a parent with her.

  • i would try getting into ronalds house, they will help with travel and a place to stay while ur child is getting a transplant. also, try shriners or st judes. they are also really big on helping families that cant afford medical help for their children. i also agree with seeing about getting help from ur community (or church) in raising money for it. good luck, and i hope that her transplant takes!

  • Move heaven and earth to get to be with her, no matter what. Are you parents or inlaws still living? Siblings? Another poster said churches. Churches love to help people when they see a real need. At least mine does. Is there a non profit counseling center? Sometimes they can help. I hope you find a way. God forbid something goes wrong, you will never forgive yourself. JMO
    Best wishes and God bless

  • I am so sorry to hear you and your baby have to go through this. I agree, I would find any means necessary to be with her. If you could borrow money, get an advance on a credit card, take out a loan, ask family.....ANYTHING to get to her. God bless.

  • 1. When is she going?
    2. Did they tell you she had to go alone (or that you had to foot your bill if you wanted to come?)
