During what was meant to be an amazing trip, Jerry fell ill with a severe lung infection. He has been hospitalized in Noumea, New Calendonia since March 7th. He has been intubated on a ventilator and in critical care for most of this time.
We have been lucky to see his lungs clearing up and begin healing, however he is still half way around the world. He can't travel home until he is breathing on his own and stable. Once this happens and he is cleared to come home, he will have to travel first class or business class with a nurse by his side.
This is where your help is needed. Jerry's medical/travel insurance does not cover those costs. The expenses are really starting to add up.
With the cost of hotel Anne and Janine are staying in, the flights home and the flight and salary of the nurse, things are getting really expensive.
We ask for your help! Any amount will be such a blessing to us. Your continued support and prayers also mean so much to us. We do thank you, and feel all your prayers are working.
All our love and gratitute
