Local GYM COACH Fights For Her LIFE

Richelle is running the race for her life and needs all of us to reach out and LOVE on her!She has been in Rush hospital for over 4 1/2 weeks with what started out as a broke bone in the top of her foot from a simple tripping over the dog leash in the yard. The foot became infected after some time and brought Richelle back to the hospital with a serious type of staph infection called MRSA. Very quickly the foot had to be surgically opened to relieve the swelling and infection. The infection is not only in her foot but now in the bone of her foot, her bloodstream, and has traveled into her hip area as well. She has had to have her hips drained twice to reduce the swelling. Her knees are swollen as well but thankfully the fluid did not test out to be MRSA just arthritic fluid in her knees. The infection has crippled Richelle and she is unable to walk and is very painful to every area of her body. She is working with physical therapy everyday and is making baby steps and we are so proud of her!She has been put on one of the most powerful antibiotics in the fleet of medicines. The main goal is to stop the infection from spreading into other parts of her body, as well as, her organs.Her kidneys are tolerating this medication so far. The dr’s have warned us about the medicine damaging her kidneys in some patients. She must remain on the medicine for 6 weeks which is administered by IV at night, before they can rescan her body to see if the infection is gone. She is very sick and has a very long journey to go. She has also had to have a blood transfusion and has developed a type of pneumonia that patients get from being in a hospital bed for long periods of time, as well as, decubulis bed sores. She is going to be transferred to a swing bed hospital in Dekalb this next week to continue the treatment of antibiotics and physical therapy. Richelle had NO insurance upon entering the Hospital and now has been able to obtain insurance as of this week to help with the medical expenses. I am setting her up this GOFUNDME account to help offset other expenses and obligations for Richelle while she is so sick. We are calling on all family, friends, and just anybody that Richelle has touched your child’s life through her career of Gymnastics over the years in some way and anybody who would and who could help her financially at this time in her life. Every gift big or small would be so helpful and grateful at this time in her life! We can all pull together and make a huge impact for Richelle. If you would be so kind and help me get this message out and share this on your FB Page. Thank you up front and continue praying for Richelle and the entire family!I am claiming this healing in JESUS name for her to rise up out of that hospital bed and be healed!
