David Edwards needs your help!

David and Lyinda are a Fairfield/Suisun young newlywed couple who have Just started on their long journey of marriage. David is only 33 years young. While David was at work managing Napa's Meineke on Thursday January 11,2018 he suffered from a aortic dissection and was immediately taken to Napa Queen Of the Valley ICU by ambulance. He was transferred to Stanford Medical Center to have surgery to input stints throughout his aorta. The loss of Blood to his abdomen caused his abdomen to swell which caused pressure build up and lack of blood flow to organs. Once arrived to Stanford, David was taken back to have surgery on his abdomen to relieve the pressure and found that the majority of his intestine has died.  They removed the dead pieces of intestine left his incision open with a VAC to continue to removed excess fluid. He then had a third surgery because of unknown internal bleeding and will have surgery again tomorrow 1/15. He has lost functioning of his kidneys and partial liver. He has received dialysis and blood transfusions and continues to fight for his life. The excess fluid has created pressure to his spine causing possible paralysis of his lower body. He is not out of the woods by any means. They are trying to keep him very comfortable and they are giving him amazing care here. We are seeing little improvements everyday but they still have a long journey. His wife Lyinda, his friends and family have been along his side since day one but they are going to need our help, david and his wife will be out of work for quite awhile They are 3 hours from home and FMLA is not an option for his wife due to new employment and they are flooding with bills and life. Anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated by him and his family. Thank you and God bless. All donations will be given directly to Lyinda and David Edwards.
