Since March 13th, we have spent weeks away from our two year old son who has been staying with his grandparents in California for the last several weeks. Having our family separated in different states has been incredibly painful and difficult. We know that we are in the best place possible for Heidi though and we will do whatever it takes to give her a fighting chance at life. Our hope is that we will be together as a complete family again someday soon.
Funds raised through this site will be applied solely to our medical expenses from both hospitals, the numerous Doctors, Surgeons and other specialists at each location, the life flight medical transport from Oregon to Michigan, medications, specialized medical equipment for our home health care, physical therapy, occupational therapy after recovery, commercial flights to and from Oregon to Michigan (we're expecting to have the same surgery done again within a year, then again before she's ten), loss of income due to hospitalization (Heidi's dad has had to take unpaid time off in order to be in Michigan), flights for getting our son to California so he can be with family while we are separated and nourishment while we are away for home.
We thank you for your support, words of encouragement and prayers.
