A mother in South Carolina shared a few heartbreaking photos of her beloved two-month-old daughter, who was hooked up to a ventilator. Her daughter has become one of the youngest people in the United States to get Coronavirus.
Ashley Hildebrand, the mother, posted these heartbreaking images of Ellie, her baby daughter, on her Facebook account last Sunday.
In the post, she confirmed that her little girl tested positive for this deadly virus, even though Ellie did not show any symptoms before she suddenly became very sick.
These shocking images show her two-month-old daughter lying in a hospital bed. Ellie is sedated and has tubes up her nose, as well as a respirator to help her breathe properly.
‘Soooo… Ellie has tested positive for COVID 19. Me and Sean have to self-quarantine for 2 weeks without her,’ the distraught mom said in her Facebook post.
‘Please keep our family in your prayers during this difficult time,’ she requested from everyone who is reading her story.
Before Ellie fell ill, she showed no symptoms except for being a little wheezy, Ashley explained in another Facebook post.
She then proceeded to explain in terrifying detail how her two months old daughter went from being ‘fine’ to how she ‘stopped breathing efficiently.’
Here is what she shared:
