Danielle's Medical Expenses

Dear Friends,
Last Monday began full of joy for our family, as our sister-in-law Danielle and her husband Josh welcomed their third son, Leo. We ended the week heartbroken, as Saturday evening Danielle suffered a terrible and unexpected brain hemorrhage following a severe headache. She underwent several medical procedures including an emergency craniotomy. She is in critical condition but stable. We are so grateful she is alive but know the next several months and beyond are going to be extremely difficult for her, Josh, and their sons ages 3 years, 17 months, and 1 week.

In addition to her family, Danielle has taken pride in her work as a scientist, a student, and a teacher. She is enrolled as a PhD student at Texas Tech, and works as a high school Biology and Anatomy & Physiology teacher and adjunct instructor for Central New Mexico Community College and Liberty University. She has especially loved her work as a teacher, and certainly impacted many students through her work. 

First we ask for your prayers for Danielle; Specifically for a full miraculous recovery, for wisdom for the medical team caring for Danielle, for strength for the whole family, especially her husband and sons. 

Secondly, we humbly ask for financial support. Further complicating the road to recovery are looming medical bills. Danielle was the benefit holder for their family. Unfortunately her benefits are scheduled to run out soon and she does not have medical leave at the schools where she teaches. Josh is a contracted employee without benefits or paid leave. Any money raised will go directly to Josh to cover their family's expenses during this time.

Lastly, thank you for your support. We have received such an outpouring of love from family and friends, without which we simply couldn't get through this. We appreciate every prayer and kind word shared.
Warmly,
Katie and Adam Plomaritas

Hello friends,
Thank you for your support for Danielle and the whole family. In the past few weeks Danielle has moved from the neuro ICU to a long term acute care hospital, which offers ICU level care on a longer term basis (30-60 days I believe). This hospital provides specialized care to patients with critical illness who are not yet ready for a rehab facility. She had a tracheotomy as well as a PEG feeding tube placed last week. She now is off of the ventilator during the day, and back on it at night for support. She is off of IV medication. Danielle seems to be “tracking” Josh, meaning she is following him with her eyes (and actually is moving her whole head). She is moving her left arm, but she is not communicating at all or following commands. These are giant leaps forward and are giving us much hope; though still these indicate the severity of her injury, the uncertainty of her prognosis, and the long road ahead. We are blown away by the generosity of our community. Thank you all for you continued prayers for Danielle, as well as for Josh and their children.
With Love and Gratitude,
The Plomaritas Family

Hi Everyone,
Thank you all for your outpouring of love, prayers, support and generosity. In the midst of this difficult time, we are filled with gratitude for the community rallying around Josh and Danielle. We do not yet have a medical update to share as it will take time for the swelling to subside and to evaluate the next steps, but she continues to be stable and we are trying to be patient in her recovery. Please continue your prayers for Danielle and her family.
With Gratitude,
The Plomaritas Family
