On Sunday March 7th, five week old Joslyn stopped breathing while Elisa was feeding her. After Elisa began CPR, medics came and she was taken by ambulance to Chippenham hospital where she was intubated and placed on a vent. After many tests, they found that she has a double aortic arch and was transported to UVA for heart surgery. Basically, every time her heart beats, her aorta is squeezing her trachea so tight that she can't breathe. Joslyn was taken to UVA and underwent heart surgery on March 16th. She will be at UVA until she can become strong enough to come off the vent. Elisa and Dustin have remained so strong through all of this and have remained at UVA by her side.  This fundraiser/website sends the money directly to Elisa and Dustin, and can be used for medical bills, expenses they have had while at UVA, and anything else they might need to prepare to bring Joslyn home. A million thanks to everyone who has donated and/or plans to donate - your generosity will make a huge difference!!!! The outpouring of love and support is truly amazing!!!!
