After wanting a child for so long, 33 yr old Teri Fernandez found out she was pregnant. Teri and her husband, Mike, were ecstatic! At 20 weeks they found out Peanut had Spina Bifida but they stated it was low so she would not be a candidate for fetal surgery. At 25 weeks an MRI was done and the defect was higher than they originally thought. So they drove to CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) to have fetal surgery. The surgery went well and Teri is now in recovery, but the long haul is just beginning. Teri is going to have to stay in Philadelphia for the rest of her pregnancy, and due to the surgery, she is expected to deliver early. The original due date would have been 8/15/13, however, the new goal has been set to get her to 37 weeks, which puts her the week of 7/22/13 for C-Section, if Peanut holds out that long. Teri has to stay at the Ronald McDonald House for the remainder of the pregnancy, in which someone has to be with her at all times. A couple family members have volunteered for a few days, but they have to get back to work also. Now Mike is missing out on work to take care of their house payment and other bills. So this family is in need of assistance and support.
