For those of you that that may not know on 3/26 Jody Brue had a debilitating stroke that caused a massive brain bleed that has affected the right side of his brain. Subsequently, he required a lifesaving surgery where the doctors had to remove part of the skull to allow his brain to swell without causing any more damage. Currently he has limited movement on the left side of his body, but he was able to say his name and give his wife Cara a high five. He has a feeding tube but hopefully it will come out soon!!
The next step is at least 6 more weeks in the hospital, an intense couple of weeks of stroke therapy at an inpatient facility and most likely followed by an extended stay in a professional nursing facility where he will continue therapy until he is able to go home. We have a very long road ahead of us, but Jody has an AMAZING, MAGICAL, UNBELIEVEABLE group of friends and family that surrounds him.
With all that said, even with insurance medical bills can be a HUGE financial burden. From doctor’s bills, insurance co-pays, and LOST WAGES we are increasing our gofundme goal to go towards financial assistance to meet Jody’s family needs!
We are grateful for all the donations so far. Even if you are not able to donate we ask you to share this link so others can help and share the love.
We cannot thank each and everyone of you enough. We are truly blessed to have the support we do.
