A ❤️ 4 Joseph

Joseph is a heart transplant candidate.
Joseph went to hospital by ambulance Aug 14th 2020 to Dyersburg, Tn.He collapsed in his mom's yard while working on his headlights. He crawled to her front door where we found him banging,he had slurred speech couldn't say anything except "I don't know"...his right arm was going crazy he lost all feeling in his right side. By the time I arrived at the hospital in Dyersburg,Tn he could talk better and they did labs and urine sample and said he was able to walk out and go home they blamed Meth use for his visit. On Sept. 6th Joseph went to Dyersburg hospital again with pain in his upper right rib cage and shortness of breath after lab tests they told us his liver enzymes were so high like those of a person who has had a heart attack recently  he was transported to Jackson General the next morning. While at Jackson after tests and labs they diagnosed him with pneumonia in right lung and heart failure problems he was sent home Sept. 10th.  20ith a life vest(external defibrillator) he was to wear for 3 months and some antibiotics along with other meds. On Sept. 15th 2020 Joseph went back to Dyersburg hospital hurting in his right side with shortness of breath and coughing up blood. He wasn't eating at all he couldn't even walk to use the restroom. They sent him to Jackson General.
His liver was failing his kidneys were shutting down they didn't know what was wrong They airlifted him to Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tn within an hour. He was dying and is lucky to be alive right now. He has a major clot on the right side of his heart another on the left. His lungs are full of clots which causes your lungs to die and bleed. He has another clot on the back of his right leg also. His heart is not pumping correctly but working enough for his circulation.Doctors here say they have never seen someone ever with as many blood clots in the lungs. He breathing on his own without a tube or oxygen is unexplainable. It's a miracle to them here. They don't know how he is doing it? But he is! Because if the bleeding in the lungs they can only give him small small amounts of blood thinners to try and break up the clots. If a clot breaks off and goes to the brain it can cause a massive stroke and he'll die. Josephs organs are working better but He's still not out of hot water yet. They are wanting to do a heart transplant we are not in any financial position to do that. We have 3 kids at home and a broke down vehicle and no income... GOD is working on Joseph i see it firsthand and it's miraculous. I only hope for the best Joseph is a fighter I know we are going to be able to come home.
