Ronald McDonald House helped Adair family while son at Kosair
The RMH made huge difference for Moores and little Brent while he was in NICU at Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
About: Chamber sponsors 2nd Annual Ronald McDonald Charities Drive
By Telissa Moore
A Special Thanks to Mrs. Stivers and the Chamber for helping such a wonderful place.
The Ronald McDonald house in Louisville is a wonderful place. My husband and I stayed there four months ago when our newborn son, Brent was in NICU at Kosair. Brent had some breathing problems after delivery and an IV was started, which then Infiltrated, causing a 3rd degree burn on his ankle.
He was then flown to Kosair via the "Baby Buggy." My husband was able to fly with Brent and stayed in the NICU waiting area the first night, to make sure Brent was going to be okay.
Then, when I was discharged from the hospital on the following day, I went straight to Kosair to be with my son. My husband's cousin (knowing that I would need somewhere to rest) had arranged for us to stay at the Ronald McDonald house. Since, I was recovering from a c-section it was nice to have somewhere close to the hospital to go rest in between my visits with my new son.
The volunteers were caring and the facility was clean. The other families there were all caring and respectful, as well. We were there for nine days, not as long as some families. Had it not been for the Ronald McDonald house we would have had to travel back and forth. So, if anyone can help this wonderful place out, please do so.
Thanks to Mrs. Stivers and the Chamber for their work on this project.
Thanks to God and the wonderful staff at Kosair, Brent is doing fine now. We still have some up coming trips for check-ups, but overall his is a precious 4 month old.
