The cardiologists at Dell Medical are in communication with cardiologists from around the world working on Grace's case, and are working around the clock to find a viable solution. They are trying to get Grace stabilized enough for a surgery just to get her healthy enough to be a candidate for a portable ECMO machine, which will, in turn, get Grace healthy enough to withstand a possible heart transplant.
Meanwhile, Jamie is currently on FMLA from her school librarian job, meaning she is not receiving an income while she is standing vigilant next to her daughter's bedside. Her FMLA runs out in December, and she must go back to work to be able to maintain their health insurance. She is staying at the wonderful Ronald McDonald house (next door to the hospital), but that alone is $20 per night. A nominal fee, but one that adds up and is difficult for anyone that has no income coming in whatsoever. Jamie has health insurance through her employer, but the copays, deductible, some out-of-network medical costs that are out of her control, and regular cost of living expenses will be impossible for her to meet without your help. I've set a goal to start at $70,000 to cover the immediate out-of-pocket medical costs, household bills, and food/necessities that will be needed for the next six months. The Jennings girls need your prayers, love, and help now more than ever.
