Maria's medical/behavioral expenses

27072178_1529214889203469_r.jpegWe are updating this page because so much has happened since this campaign started!  We are so thankful for all of the support, prayers, and funds we have received for our daughter.  We count our blessings!  We have sincerely tried our best in being wise with our funds through this all.  We have lived separate as a family for a month, with mommy staying in the hospital with Maria the whole time and eating all meals at the Ronald Mc Donald house.  What an amazing place! We have saved on transportation, gas, and parking by not having a car here for that entire month.  

But Maria will be entering the next phase of treatment this Monday and we now need another place to stay, which has a kitchen.  Most importantly, we pray Maria continues to heal.  Eating disorders are the most deadly mental illness!  Scary!  

Our family is still in San Diego, as this is the closest place that has an intensive outpatient pediatric facility for our daughters eating disorder.  Her tube was just removed 2 days ago after having been in for almost 3 months!

Unfortunately we have not been able to get into the Ronald Mc Donald House or elsewhere, while we stay here for the next phase of treatment.  This is a 5 day a week, 7 hour a day treatment that typically lasts 12 weeks.  It is family based, so we all need to be here with Maria for the first few weeks at least.  Then one parent will need to be here with Maria through the rest of the program.  

If anyone has a place they can rent for a discounted price weekly or monthly, it would be a great help.  We will be in the UCSD area of San Diego.  We are still hoping to get into the Ronald McDonald home in the near future.  Or any amount that anyone can give will help ease the burden of finding a place to rent during this time!
