The Comet Family is made up of a Mom and her 3 girls. The 7 year old girl was born at 32 weeks when her mom’s placenta ruptured. It took 5 hours to stabilize them after she was born. The baby was careflighted to a different hospital, but mom couldn’t go with her because of her condition. When baby was 2 weeks old, a spot was found on her brain (a PVL). Because of the loss of oxygen to her brain from her brain bleed, she developed Cerebral Palsy. When she was 6 mo, dad was killed in a car accident leaving behind mom and all 3 girls. Mom has Arthrogryposis which is a condition where joints become permanently fixed in a bent or straightened position. Becuase of this, mom cannot take care of kids without help, but loves her girls so much.
