Alexis Recovery Fund

On January 10, 2018 10 year old Alexis was rushed via ambulance to Millers Children's Hospital due to what doctors kept telling her mom, Marie, was a bad cold. After being sick for a few weeks on and off and not fully recovering she ended up in urgent care after 3 previous visits to the ER. The doctor was going to once again dismiss her and send her home with a flu diagnosis, but Marie's mother intuition told her there was something more going on with her daughter. She insisted they run more tests, and as soon as they checked her oxygen level the doctors told her they needed to call 911. At Millers they told her Alexis had Complex Pneumonia and had they gone home she wouldn't have made it.
After lots of complications, two surgeries to help drain the severe infection from her lungs, blood transfusions and finally finding the right antibiotic she's finally getting better. She's off the ventilator, breathing on her own and taken out of ICU.
Now I ask you to please help Marie while she does everything she can to help her daughter. She, like any mother, has not left her daughters side. Marie was about to start a new job and was finishing out her last week at her previous job when all this happened. Unfortunately she hasn't been able to start her new job. She's been keeping her new job updated in hopes that they will wait and hold her position, but of course it's not guaranteed. As we all know bills wait for no one, and her insurance doesn't cover everything and will be running out now that she is no longer with her previous employer, so I'm doing this in hopes of helping her out.
Alexis is still in the hospital and they aren't sure if she'll be out in the next two weeks or so. But because of the damage the infection caused her lungs and how susceptible she is to anything right now she won't be able to return to school possibly for the remainder of the school year. So now Marie will have to make arrangements for her to be homeschooled. Luckily this new job position, that hopefully she still has, allows her to work from home. But life isn't going back to normal right away, after such a long Hospital stay. So anything will help them adjust and not have to worry about money and be able to focus on Alexis full recovery. On behalf of Marie and Alexis we thank you so much for your thoughts prayers and well wishes.
