my father was able to eat his first meal after 3 long hard weeks!!! he also came off the ventaltors for 6 whole hours yesterday as well! baby steps to improvement! thanks for all the prayers an donations! God bless!
hello, just letting everyone know my dad has been in the intensive care unit at Parkland hospital for 2 weeks now. this virus has now temporarily paralyzed his diaphram along with his lower extremities leaving him with no
choice but to be on a ventaltor, due to infections yesterday he had surgery receiving a treck in his throat helping him breath, he is currently stable. we are still accepting donations and gladly appreciate them. I still have plenty of support braclets for $5 apiece. if you all didn't know the number of cases is now at 1,000 outbreaks and 34 deaths. please keep my father an our family in your thoughts and prayers. God bless!!!
back in the emergency room last night.... geeeeeez! will this ever give us a break??? Doc said he's doing fine and oxygen levels Are normal just found a bladder infection! Lord please give him the strength to walk again! donations are extremely helpful right now due to the fact we have to find a physical therapy rehab with no insurance :(
mon./tues./wed. have been the hardest days so far. at home care and therapy is definitely a struggle, having to transfer him from the bed to the wheel chair into a different chair then back into bed or into the bathroom. if anyone knows of extra volunteers that do home health care or for pretty cheap let me know! keep our pops in your thoughts and prayers please.
sat. 8/18/12 my dad was released from the hospital. I thank God cause his condition could be a lot more worse. We have to strengthen him back up and relearn how to walk all over again! its going to be a struggle but with the Lords healing hand we can pull through this. He also was sent home with 10 different medications...he has long road of recovery ahead so please everyone keep praying!!!!!
Thursday August 16th.. day 22 in the hospital. Inside Edition came to the hospital to interview my dad. (crazy) They wanted to put a story with the aerial spraying around the metroplex. Overall it went pretty well. He was short of breaths during the interview but he was feeling pretty confident, he really wants the community to know how serious an deathly this virus is or can be. For the first time in 22 days my father got to see the light. We were able to transfer him into the wheel chair with help and endure a little adventure outside so that was pretty exciting for him and me. Now to end the day with leg exercises, breathing treatments, snacks, and movies. After all the deaths caused by this outbreak, I'm proud to say my dad is still fighting and will continue to fight, with prayers and support! I can't say it enough, but THANKS to everyone who has been here in this time of need!
Monday August 13th I visited my dad around 8pm and we watched the cowboys preseason game! very enlighting to see him yell at the TV and the referees . lol. he's coming back around, i thought! He also is gaining more strength in his left leg and slowly but surely the right leg will come around, he's still having pretty bad back spasms but he's getting medicine for the pain. With help he can now sit up on the side of the bed... everyday is a struggle but with everyone's support he can fight through this!! so please keep praying. and if you happen to visit the hospital he LOVES sweets! :) thanks again to everyone who has donated you all are amazing!
love you daddy!
August 10, 2012 Friday is our 15th day in the hospital. I had a meeting with my dads nurses, case manager, doctor, dietician, physical therapist, pharmacist, and social worker. They were all very kind and confident about my getting my dads health better!! They want to keep him another 2 weeks due to this nasty virus, his body is still pretty sick. :/ He had a few visitors today keeping him in high spirits and positive! His physical therapy went pretty well today, sat up in the chair for an hour an ate a Popsicle :). his left leg is doing a lot better and he had some slight movement in his right leg. so today went pretty well I'd say. we have to keep up the exercises an therapy to get his muscles strong and back to where they used to be. staying positive, positive, positive!!!! thanks to ALL who have been praying for him and keeping him in your thoughts! and a big THANK YOU for all the donations and support! It really helps!!
Love you sooo much daddy!!

Hey guys i just wanted to say thank you for all the support from friends and family! my family is having a very rough time through this right now! any donation will be accepted and GREATLY appreciated!!! my dad is very behind in bills due to not being able to work and i dont want to even mention the amount of money from hospital bills. anything helps.... god bless!
For those of you who don't know our dad, he was an amazing father, husband, uncle, cousin, son, nephew, best friend, mentor and coach. You name it, he did it! He passed away on January 2nd 2015, He's been fighting for his life for 2.5 years now and is now with his Heavenly Father . ... My younger brothers and I are not able to give him a memorial that we would love to give him. We are trying to raise enough money to give him an appropriate memorial that he deserves. We want to thank everyone for the prayers and donations that we have already received and thank the people in advance for the many prayers and blessings to come. Rest in peace daddy. Fly high!
