Help Nora and Bob
All the love from Nora and Bob.
Both Nora and Bob are at the rehab facility and on their respective paths of regaining the strength to walk again. It's a long road to recovery and I know they are both grateful to your support, both financially and emotionally.
Go team Reetie!
Big news for Nora too; she is out of ICU! She is breathing on her own and is building up tolerance for the speaking valve. Her next step for the trach is, I believe, to start with ice and make sure she can swallow it without the water moving into her lungs which is the next step towards eating. We got to hear her speak this morning and will try again later today.
Your incredible generosity is helping so much! Thank you and bless you for all you are doing for our kids. They are in their 6th week in the hospital (Nora) and skilled nursing facility (Bob) here in Reno. It may be 4 more weeks before they get to be transferred back to the Portland area, and it is totally uncertain when they will get to live at home independently. Your donations are helping to make their life more predictable and sustaining. You are making it possible for them to pay for COBRA payments for Nora's healthcare. You are making it possible for Bob to be able to pay for at least some of his healthcare. Collectively, you are the best friends that anyone can HOPE to have. Our love and best wishes, Ernie and Pauline Azevedo
Everyone knows Nora and Bob are just two of the best people you'll ever be lucky to meet. This accident happened on the second day of the trip they were taking to celebrate their anniversary. Thank you to every who has donated and to those who donate in the future!! Nora has had a really rough time of it with her mother passing last year and the resulting depression. All this outpouring of love and help will surely go a long way to convince her and Bob, just how special they are to all of us and that they are most deserving of all this love and support. Love you so much, Nora and Bob!
