A Mom Will Have More Time With Her 11-Month Old Baby After A Court Ordered A Hospital To Keep Her On Life Support

A Texas mom who has been fighting to keep her 11-month-old daughter with a fatal medical condition alive will have more time with her baby after an appeals court agreed to delay a decision allowing a hospital to take the girl off life support.

The Texas Second Court of Appeals granted a motion for emergency relief Friday evening, ordering Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth not to withdraw life-sustaining treatment for Tinslee Lewis until it makes a decision on the case.

Tinslee was born prematurely in February 2019 with Ebstein’s anomaly, a rare heart defect, as well as chronic lung disease. She needs full respiratory and cardiac support, and the hospital said they believe her health won’t improve and she continues to suffer despite her medical team’s best efforts.
