Robin's Stroke Recovery
On June 22nd Robin suffered a sever stroke that left a golf ball sized pool of blood in her brain. The blood is located so deep that doctors cannot reach it with surgery. Robin is on her way to healing and each day is allowed more moments of consciousness before being sedated to maximize her body's ability to heal.
While we are blessed that the stroke wasn't worse, we are finding ourselves with looming medical bills. And unfortunately, as a small business owner, Robin will not be allowed to seek government assistance while she is unable to work during her recovery.
Any money that can be provided will help us reduce the financial burden she will face during her long recovery. When Robin is finally allowed to come home, we do not want her thoughts to be on unsurmountable debt, we want her to be able to focus on her physical therapy and making more happy memories with her family.
All help, no matter how small each donation is, will be greatly appreciated.
Last week Robin moved again to, this time to Good Samaritan's Inpatient Rehabilitation Center. Robin is excited about this transition and is looking forward to the hard work that this facility will help her do. It has been nearly two months since Robin's stroke and we appreciate the kindness, assistance, and donations that we have received so far. Though Robin is now stable, she and her family still have a long way to go so all continued support is appreciated.
Now that she has been off of the breathing tube for a while, she is able to speak as her primary form of communication. Unfortunately, she is still battling paralysis on the left side of her body. Because of this, she is unable to eat or drink and still has a feeding tube.
Thank you everyone for your support and kind words.
The first of many bills arrived yesterday, the 5 mile ambulance ride is costing us $2,488.60.
Thank you everyone for your support and assistance, we hope she will be strong enough for friends to visit soon.
With this large step forward, Robin is still unable to fully communicate with us. The sedation drug still needs to work out of her system. And the swelling in her throat is still causing pain that interferes with speech.
Our family is so grateful for the help we have received from the donations that are already in, to the friends who are helping us manage our lives.
Robin still has a long way to go, but we know that with the friends we have to reach out to, her recovery will be surrounded by kind people.
I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. May God keep you in his hands and help you to recover from this devastating occurrence. You are a strong woman with great willpower. You have many friends and family behind you to help through your recovery….you can do this!!
