Mother Nasri's Surgery/Recovery
Unfortunately, the recovery period is going to be long, 6 - 12 months. Her ankles and feet are immobilized as they heal, and she is in a wheelchair. She will not be able to walk or work for 3 months. Due to the major medical bills of the surgery and required rehabilitation, this will total over $42,000.
Whether they are large or small donations, we appreciate your help and prayers during this time. From her week long hospital stay at Bay Medical Center, Panama City, FL to her inpatient rehabilitation, we have to begin making payments on her medical bills by the end of May 2016.
Whatever you are able to donate, we cannot thank you enough! She is an endearing and devoted person. I will continue to update you on this page and all those interested on her recovery.
The Nasri Family
Now she is homebound, and in the care of family and friends in Destin, FL. There will be return visits to UAB. For anyone in the gulf coast area, on Wednesday 8 june 2016, 7pm onward, a celebratory fundraising event will take place at her restaurant marie's bistro 30a. It is very difficult for her to move around right now so if you make it, please toast your glass to her and the gift of life!
We want everyone to know that your compassion, care, and concern will be forever cherished. Thank you all for the support in this recovery process. Kind regards Marie and her family.
Mom will be able to walk and stand for long periods of time, it will just take some time. They also did a skin graft to close the wound & surgical site. Skin is taken from another area and grafted over the opening, the graft has a very good 80% success rate of a adhering and growing.
Dr. Johnson told Madeline that mom will not be able to put any weight on her ankles for 3 months. Right now they do not know if she will be ready to go home this Friday. From what it sounds like, she will be able to leave Monday - this is up in the air and we have to take it day by day.
After she returns home, UAB recommends Mom going home during the 3 month rest & recovery because she has been doing so well transferring to the wheelchair and bedside bathroom. Once she is able to put weight back on her feet, then it would be smart to begin the rehabilitation process.
We will keep you updated on when she is able to return home to the gulf coast area. She is in good spirits. We are thankful to have her in our lives and for all of your financial, emotional, and spiritual support.
Love you and miss you Marie. So happy to hear that both surgeries are a success and that you will be coming home soon. Everyone that comes into the restaurant keeps asking me about you , your progress and sends their love and prayers.
Hanie and Marie, please know our prayers are with you God will get you through this. We love you. Fran and Gary Brandt
