Our baby due Feb 14th has a heart defect called Transposition of Great Arteries.

My name is Cassie, I am currently 27 weeks and 5 days pregnant with a little girl that we are naming Khloee. I am married to an amazing man and I have 2 little girls named Kiilee 4, and Kynlee 19 months. At my 19 week ultrasound we found out that baby Khloee has a heart defect called Transposition of Great Arteries. http://www.chop.edu/service/cardiac-center/heart-conditions/transposition-of-the-great-arteries.html There is a little information of what she has. Where we live they don't have a hospital that can do her surgery, so we are having to travel 7 hours away to the All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL. I am due Feb 14 but will have to go down and be induced a week early (that is, if everything is fine at our Jan 7th appointment down there). Then at a week old she will have to have open heart surgery. We have doctors appointments down there and all around town right now and the cost is just killing us. I can't imagine how bad the cost is going to be when we have to be down there for a month+ after we have her. As it stands, there is no way my husband is going to leave me and the baby down there. But due to the cost of living, our 2 girls staying in PCB,  and supporting us while being down there, there is no way we can do it. My family is trying to help the best they can and I am truly blessed to have such a great family. I have contacted local radio stations and some businesses to try and find help but I keep getting no responses in return. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you, Cassie, Thomas, Kiilee, Kynlee, and Khloee Fish
