I am Veronica, the mother of Alexx Blanks. I need to raise funds for his medical and personal care once he is out of the hospital.
Alexx got the flu and couldn’t work. He is a truck driver. He became very ill with the flu and had gone to the hospital but they sent him back home to stay in bed. The next day he was so weak, his family had to go pick him up and take him to a 2nd hospital. He was diagnosed with INFLUENZA B and had become dehydrated and his kidney was damaged because of the dehydration. He was given IV fluids and sent home. (This happened 3 times, still to be sent home) No one hospitalized him. Finally 911 was called and he was taken to the hospital where he has now been since Sun 25th, of November 2018. He was put in ICU with Brain flu. 
He is 34 years old and now on life support  with a flu virus that has attacked his body and brain. There are other complications that have developed from this Flu virus, it has been VERY AGGRESSIVE 
As of now, his medical bills are rising daily and there is no insurance. He is self employed. Please help raise money for his medical needs. Right now he is not awake but still sleeping from sedations given earlier to calm his brain activity.
We don’t know how long he will sleep but as of now his body is fighting. We need prayers of faith and monies to assist with medical expenses. 

Thank you you sincerely for your help!!

Praise the Lord
He is beyond any words or any thoughts that we can come up with to glorify him !!
today we have been in the hospital for 96 days and counting and all I can say is God‘s compassion in me won’t let me be tired God‘s love in me won’t let me give up so I I just want everyone to know that when we depend on our own love, compassion, and kindness it will diminish !!! But when we allow God‘s love, compassion, and kindness to take its place in our bodies and spirityhen we can do more than we ever thought we could.... because it’s not us that’s doing it, it’s the Lord and I just want to give him praise and thank him because I know he has kept me from being sick !
There have been so many people in this hospital including employees with the flu and all kind of sickness... coughing and whatever and got let me know that he would keep me from all sickness and diseases and Is exactly what he has done!!! Once again thank you all every single one of you for your prayers and your faith❤️❤️❤️❤️

My Lord My Lord!!!! I need a year to tell y’all all that God is bringing us through. My son is such a fighter, it’s like God is just on the inside of his body saying, “We will never give up, though you are weak, Iam strong, FOCUS on me, set your heart and mind on me!!!! “
This is what my son is trying to do.
He said he wants to concentrate on getting well. By the grace of God.... no matter what I see or hear from the doctors and staff, I tell him that the Lord has already healed him and he ain’t taking no for an answer. God’s promises are YE and AMEN. Yes and so be it!
So we don’t have an option to give up. NEVER GIVE UP. None of us, no matter what life brings our way. This is REAL! I don’t know what to expect from one day to the next and sometimes one hour...All we have IS God and when that’s all you got, and in him you believe....then God will make real what you believe and now you’re looking to him and Him ALONE. He moves by faith. We wants us to be for real about Him and not play church. Sinning and repenting...claiming God and the worldly as all get out .... we want to be true to what we believe. Every body ain’t gonna like that. But we are not here to please people.
if we don’t compare ourselves among ourselves then we can let Jesus be our example. Looking at man will only disappoint you. So we gonna get our eyes on God.
We need to seek God with our whole heart! Why not? We go after what we want!
What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?
Alexx is talking and eating but there’s a lot he can’t do for. Now. But we are trusting God it’s all temporal. So please keep praying!
God bless you all!!!
Sorry for being so long❤️

Praise God people!
Every one have been asking if Alexx is still here at the hospital! We are at like DAY 73!
We are both tired BUT!!!!!! We are STILL FIGHTING. I remind him daily who he is in the Lord!! God always makes a way. Encouraging him sending those same words to my spirit and mind, therefore I’m encouraged moment by moment.
I look at my son and I think about how much he makes me laugh and how silly our family is.
I want us to LEAVE THIS HOSPITAL AND I WANNA GO HOME!!! He wants to go home!
But God is not done yet. It’s not what we want, it’s what God wants. In the end of this situation we are going to be a force of faith to be reckoned with ALL BY THE POWER OF GOD!!!
We love you all!!!
