Wyllow Raynes' Story: On June 24th, 2012, Our 6 week old Granddaughter, Wyllow Rayne McHugh was admitted to Aurora Hospital at 8:00am in Oshkosh. Thoughts were that she was simply dehydrated. The doctors finally became concerned late afternoon with Wyllow not eating or sleeping for such a long period of time. They then decided to do a CT Scan of her head. As soon as they received the images, it showed swelling in her brain. They then immediately contacted Flight for Life to Air Lift her to Milwaukee's Children's Hospital. When Wyllow arrived at Children's Hospital Sunday night at about 10pm, she was having seizures and showed signs of Apnea in which they then put a breathing tube in. Over the next 10 days, they did every conceivable test to determine what was going on. Finally after several seizure medicines and combinations, they now have the seizures under control. Also as of July 6th, they removed the breathing tube and she is breathing on her own. After multiple testing and waiting for results, they have come to the conclusion that Wyllow has a extremely rare Genetic Disorder called "Molybdenum Cofactor Deficiency." There has been only 1 other baby in the world (Australia) to be treated for this rare condition. There is a doctor in Connecticut that has access to this medicine in Germany in which can possibly save Wyllow's life. We are now waiting for the answer from him. If he says no, Wyllow's brain will continue to dissolve with her disease and she will die. We are so concerned about our granddaughters life and we believe that if this medicine can save her life, then she deserves to have it! What would you do if you were her parents or grandparents? If you would rather send a personal donation please feel free to send donations to: Whitney or Terry McHugh 1270 Kewaunee St Oshkosh WI 54904
