CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) – Amber Boisselle was taken by life flight to Denver to be evaluated for a few weeks, six months ago. Less than an hour after arriving, she had to have an emergency c-section.
Clara spent five months in the neonatal intensive care unit. At month four, she was transferred from Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children’s NICU to Children’s Hospital Colorado‘s NICU for an eye surgery, only Children’s Colorado had the ability to offer. The transfer came right as hospitals had begun putting safety protocols in place for the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I’m coming to a new place, I didn’t have my support team. The NICU parents, moms and dads, we kind of gather together and befriend each other and help each other through this journey and we weren’t allowed to do that,” said Boisselle.
“It really felt like he was walking into the room and it just made me so happy, it was really awesome. It made everybody really happy and I think that we all just really enjoyed having that moment, that there’s still good things happening,” said Boisselle.
“I’ve seen plenty of families who are in really tough situations and just being able to do a robot visit has brightened their whole day. Not only are they able to connect with their families, it makes it a really memorable event for them.” said Homer.
