“So the doctors come back to me in the room saying your baby’s being worked on, your wife’s asleep. And then I heard code blue. This lady comes to our door area and saysWe need you doctor,’ and the doctor rushes back there. And then 20 minutes later the rest of the doctors and nurses flow in the room and tell me that my wife didn’t make it but my daughter’s in an incubator getting her treatment.”
The vibrant 27-year-old mother of four died of heart failure.
Elesandro told ABC 7 that baby Quinn’s condition is improving every day. She was born prematurely and will be in the NICO for an additional month.
He said he and his four girls will need to continue to lean on each other:
“I told my kids, you’re [an] extension of your mother. You guys are women, and you guys are going to be my life, you guys are going to take that role, you guys are going to take care of me, and I know you will, and they have.”
Raising four girls isn’t cheap, and now that Elesandro is doing it alone he said he needs help.
