My son Connor was hit by a school bus on his way to school. He has sustained life-threatening injuries that are going to require multiple surgeries and a long recuperation. I am a single mother, with a single income, who was not expecting something of this magnitude. I will need help with living expenses throughout this long recovery process.+ Read More
Good afternoon donors! It's been some time since I updated on you about Connor. As many of you who follow me on Facebook know, Connor was finally released from the hospital about a month ago. He's currently doing outpatient therapies for occupational, physical and speech 5 times a week. He had to have a surgery on his eye to fix some retinal holes in the left one and a complete tear in the right one. His femur implant is healed and he's able to walk with full support, though he does use the wheelchair when he's expected to be on his feet for long periods. He still tires very easily. As you know, this is going to be a long process and I am still not working, so any and all help is much appreciated.
Thank all of those who have donated. It's very humbling to see all the love for my son. Please continue to promote and support. This is a long, long road
Nothing really new to report. Connor is still asleep, though I'm certain he does hear me. Patti, (Frenchie) and I were joking around with him and I could see his heart rate rise and fall a few beats with each wise crack. I like to think he's silently laughing with us and rolling his eyes at his silly mom, doing what Frenchie calls questioning mom's intelligence. The nurses came to turn him, which apparently Connor does NOT like.
Finally got checked into the House and got that much needed shower. Got unpacked and clothes put away. I tried to lay down, but couldn't sleep. And I forgot to pack my melatonin and sleeping pills, so it's going to be a long night. The nurses are working with Connor now, upping meds and including morphine drip. He's becoming more aware and the pain is too much for him to bear. Hence the increase. He's also been placed back on the cooling pads to keep body temp down. He's always been hot natured. Looking at Him right now and he's agitated by what the nurse did with the breathing tube, but once it was over Connor settled right back down. I got to watch him wiggle his toes under the sheet, so that's a great sign.
