Tristan Skyy McMains Recovery Fund

 Albuquerque, NM

 

On Oct. 19th, Tristan Skyy McMains sustained a near fatal injury in which a large portion of the right side of his brain was destroyed.  His status was recently downgraded from critical, however the injuries he sustained were so severe that he is facing months in the hospital and more than likely multiple years of physical therapy.  Almost all motor skill must be relearned.  Tristan Skyy is such an amazing individual, and even at the young age of 13, is considered to be an anchor to so many people.

 

He is second oldest of five brothers, all who adore him.  According to his brothers, they don't care what happened or how their brother may be different, they just want him home.  The family has been in multiple battles in recent years, including advanced stage cancer and their youngest being born with congenital heart disease, requiring their newborn to undergo open heart surgery when he was just 6 days old.  Their unshakable faith in the Lord brought them through those trials, as he will bring them through this one.  They are certain.  Thousands continue to pray without ceasing for this amazing young man and this tragic situation.

 

Tristan is special.  He was born with an old soul and a young smile.  He is mature beyond his years and is loved by many of his friends, cousins, and brothers.  His closest friends from school are his world, and they have come forward and begged to be a part of his recovery.  Harrison Morrow is leading the funding effort.

 

The family is so thankful for how many great people, young and old alike, love him deeply and unconditionally.  He has a magnetic personality, built tall and strong, yet is always sensitive to others around him.  He has never backed down from a challenge, this will be no different, of this we are sure.

 

Tristan also loves music. From dubstep, to slow blues, to punk...music is his passion.

 

The support received will be used by the family for hospital bills, care, therapy, and financial assistance.  Due to the severity of the tragedy, Tristan will need a parent with him for most days, limiting income capability for years potentially.  The family has realized this will be a marathon, not a sprint.  Their ultimate request is for prayers for their son.  They are certain this horrible situation will ultimately be turned for good, and they have solid faith in that.

From Rox-

March 1st marks the day we all prayed for would come. Here's a priceless moment I've wanted to share with Tristan's permission. This picture is Tristan and I getting our ID bracelets cut off. Tristan and I wore our hospital bracelet for 4 1/2 it was what identified us in more ways then just who we were, it was how far we've come. Our journey has just begun with many bumps, curves and hills to still climb, but we made it because of all you who loved us, prayed with us and supported along the way. Praise God!

From Roxanne-

We are gearing up for Tristan's home coming! We're beyond grateful and full of joy. We also, still have a lot to do at home in preparing our home for the best quality of life for our son. If anyone could offer a hand on Saturday we'd love to get a small group of people together. We're still working on transportation and out of state rehab, so please share share the gofundme. We have a few modifications at home to still do like painting and moving furniture around. I will pay in Frito Pies or BBQ pulled pork! Hehe!

From Roxy:

"GREAT NEWS! Tristan has a discharge date of March 1st! If someone would have said we'd be here 4 months ago, our hearts and our souls would be every different. We are changed forever. The fact that I can even write this is, is a total miracle in its self. Never under estimate the power of prayer and the will to live, it's a recipe for greatness! We love deeper, we speak softer, sweeter, we hug each other tighter for much longer and we wakeup each morning Thanking God for another day. We're so grateful and humbled beyond words for all your prayers and support. Please don't stop! We need ya'll more than ever, the next chapter of this journey is just beginning. We still have many more hills and valley's to conquer and over come, but we have no doubt Tristan and our beautiful family will be restored and revived to a better version of what we were truly created to be. Our immediate needs are finding an XL SUV no older than 5 to 7 years old. We have to prove we can transport Tristan safely with possible vehicle modifications our Volvo does not meet there standers. We are still waiting to hear back from TIRR Texas rehabilitation center for his out patient therapy. Otherwise, the doctors are suggesting Baltimore, which either one requires a huge expenses on us. As a family we have been transparent durning such a difficult time and have shared our hearts. We're adults we can handle the judgement and criticism that has been said and done. Tristan is still a child who will have his own time and healing to share his story. Due to two resent tragedies at Cottonwood classical our son is being thrown into a topic many know nothing about, much less can even begin to understand. Please respect those that have lost their loved ones and be very careful on what you write on social media because it can't be erased. We are planning on setting up a page for Tristan and his recovery where his classmates and other schools and organizations could send messages, support and most of all a healing processes can begin for many. As we move into this tradition we ask for respect and privacy as Tristan emerges from this tragedy. We know and believe Tristan was saved for a reason he has an amazing testimony to share, but it is his timing and on his grounds. We ask that you continue to share his story and journey as he walks in faith in finding his new normal. We feel strongly about wanting to help others including Tristan. We know we're not the only family that's has had to endure so much in such a short time, but we're not afraid to share our faith and vulnerability if it can help others and their journey called life with possibly helping to inspire in their eternity. Thank you again from every part of my soul.

From Terry-

"Be still, and know that I am God."
Psalm 46:10

Tristan just moved his left arm. Thank you Lord.

We believe, we will remain still. God has answered every single prayer in healing Tristan. One month ago, none of his left side was responsive. His balance isn't great yet, but he can now walk 150 feet at a time. We said from the first day he would walk out of this place, and he will. His left arm was the last piece to the entire side becoming active again. We have prayed without ceasing, as so many others have on our behalf, and believed from the first day he would be restored, and all to the glory of God. This was beyond us. This was beyond the doctors. This was beyond Tristan himself. Believe people. Believe.

Thank you to all of our warriors as you believed, without doubt, by our side through this.

Much love to all,

tj
