Anna Norquist (PLEASE SHARE)
Anna Norquist, the strong, bold and beautiful, is in a crisis. As is her beautiful family. She has been attacked by Toxic Shock Syndrome caused by Streptococcus A. Miraculously, against all odds, she is still alive but she is still very, very sick. The doctor said she should not have survived. When she is stable enough to survive the surgeries, she will have both of her arms amputated and the doctors told us to be prepared for one of her legs to be amputated. She has had compartmental surgery on both of her arms and both of her legs. She is sliced open from head to toe. At best, she will have multiple surgeries and multiple amputations. They will be life altering. But, whatever she faces, we, her family, will support her as best we can, but, both now and over the long term, we will need help from all her friends, our friends and all loving and generous strangers. Please do what you can to help us help Anna. God bless you.
This fund has been created by her brother. These funds will go directly into a local bank account in our hometown, which is in her mother and father's name, and all the funds will be for all of Anna's needs, and Anna's name will be added to the account when necessary.
Anna is home and healing. The wound and graft site are healing per the surgeon. She has pain, which we continue to manage. She received her right prosthetic arm this week. Slept all day yesterday, all day... woke up once to use the bathroom, and then woke at 11 pm and asked what happened. She is resting and sleeping like a baby when she can. So today, she got up and wanted to get dressed and go out with her brother. It has been over 6 week since she has been able to go out and smile. Thanks for your support.
Wound graft and muscle pull over the patella. Surgeons are hopeful that it was successful but she has a lot of pain. Many trips to Indianapolis for follow up. Hoping we don't have to have a re-do on this surgery. It was quite traumatic.
