Craig Donnelly's Medical Fund
3 truly amazing people stopped to call 911 and to help Craig, one of them even contacting Craig's wife who insisted he wear a medical bracelet.
Craig was transported by ambulance to Immanuel Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery and doctors had to remove his left cerebellum due to the extensive damage to his skull and brain.
As of this posting on 5/8/2016, Craig remains in the ICU. Doctors and staff are hoping to move him to the rehabilitation section of the hospital this week. He is awake and interactive, but still on a feeding tube and unable to walk. Doctors have yet to determine full impact.
Being self-employed causes many challenges in this situation; fortunately Brandi is employed fulll-time at Athleta in Village Pointe. While Craig and Brandi do have medical insurance coverage, they are losing income with Craig unable to work and with him being in the ICU for potentially 2 weeks and many more weeks in rehab, the medical bills are adding up quickly.
The Donnelly's will use all money raised for medical bills and support for Craig's future medical needs. Your financial support will help them to turn their focus and energy on healing and making sure that Craig gets the medical support he needs.
Thank you for considering a donation to Craig's medical fund, it is truly appreciated.
Over the next couple of weeks, Brandi will be moving in order to accommodate Craig's needs when he comes home. The date for when he will be released is dependent on progress, so kind of a wait and see game at this point.
Thank you all again for continuing to share Craig's story, for your kind words, your support and for your generous donations. There is a long road ahead and all of this support is appreciated beyond measure! Please continue to share and help us reach our goal!
Have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day weekend.
Craig took his first steps since his accident yesterday, he looks pretty happy to be up! He does have to undergo another surgery today to have a feeding tube put in. The doctors are planning to move him to the rehabilitation wing of the hospital today where he will begin a lengthy stay to focus on both his mental and physical activities that were impacted.
Thank you all again for the support and love through this process. Craig is still at QLI but walking much more and his diet is now all normal food :) We plan to have him home by the end of October!!
