Christina Morales   OKLAHOMA CITY, OK
On May 20th our lives were changed forever when a EF-5 tornado ripped through Moore, OK and caught our mom in its path. She stopped to take shelter in the cooler of the 7-11 store on 4th and Telephone Road. Three people lost their lives and she was critically injured. We have spent more than 50 days in ICU and still have many more days ahead of hospital, physical therapy, then finally rehab. Her new job benefits had not started yet so she didn't qualify for health insurance just yet. She has had 8 surgeries I believe so far with many more to come. Her injuries included a collapsed lung, broken ribs, broken shoulder blades, numerous facial fracture, eye wall brake, left hand crushed, dozens of cuts on her head, more staples than we can count, right hand with severe cuts, damage to her lungs from impact, ARDS, e-coli infections, pseudonymous, pneumonia, and a broken spine. The list is bigger but that's the condensed version. We need help and that is why This page was created to help assist in the raising of funds for mom and rehabilitation. She is going to need a van, wheel chair and lift, special chairs, alterations to her residence, and much more. Anything you or your company are able to help with is so very appreciated. Thank you for taking time to learn about her and her story!! Her Complete story: http://kfor.com/2013/07/16/graphic-tornado-victim-still-in-icu-following-moore-tornado/

Update on Mom:
"Day two back in the hospital and she is much better today. Pain is better but still kicking her butt! Dr. Adham finally came in about an hour ago and showed us the X-rays of the hand. He said he still hasn't decided what to do, we have to wait for the bone biopsy and cultures to come back. If they are good, then he wants to possibly do a large plate in the arm and hand. It would limit her function and use but keep the hand. So we have to wait for those results. We finally came to peace and trust that God will see us through His plan. We will let you all know when the results are in!! Love and God bless you!!

Status update for Mom: She is all finished with surgery, took a little longer than we thought. Dr. Adham came out and gave us the update. He had to remove the pins in the ring, pinky, and thumb. More of the bone has died and the pins aren't doing anything. The large bone in the forearm has also partially died and he is now recommending amputation. He doesn't believe the hand will ever function or hold weight for her to be able to use it. He doesn't believe the bones will sustain themselves below the dead bones. Please pray for us and for her. She is still in recovery and they are going to keep her overnight for observation. Lord bless us all.
