Disability Swimming Pool for Kaylee

Please help Kaylee walk again!  Kaylee (age 9) with  Down Syndrome, has a hip injury that has confined her to a wheelchair.  Her condition is called Avascular Necrosis, which is the death of bone tissue due to lack of blood supply.  The condition can worsen without adequate care.  Currently she is in physical therapy and swimming is the only activity that she is allowed to do.  Doctors want her in the wheelchair full time if she is not swimming.  Swimming is the best thing for her and will help her keep the range of motion she has, as well as helps with the constant pain. 

The most heartbreaking part of Kaylee's situation is that she did not receive proper care when her hip slipped out of place after a fall on ice.  Despite many calls and trips to the doctor, because of her inability to communicate her location of pain, the correct diagnosis was not made.  Finally, a trip to ER and a insightful doctor who took x-rays identified the problem which is called SCFE (Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis).  In the best case scenario, Kaylee would have had a surgery within 24/48 hours of the injury. Instead, she had to wait 17 days. Finally Kaylee had surgery and pins placed in both hips, but because of the weeks without blood flow to the bone, it is permanently affected.  However, if Kaylee is able to build her muscle tone and lose weight as a result of swimming everyday, she will likely be able to walk again. 

Kaylee is an incredibly sweet-natured child.  Our hearts break for her as she can only watch the other children play from her wheelchair.  We were advised to reach out for help to provide her with a disability pool quicker than we can afford one on our own, because of her immediate needs.  If you have it in your hearts and are able, please help us help our angel!!! Thank you and God bless!!

Godspeace,
so while ive been dealing with some issues myself the pool had gotten set on back burner...

We were hoping to get some major help from the insurance company, but we were told by the insurance state commissioner that they cant force them to help even with a solid case because it’s through third party. But i know things will go as there meant to be.

Kaylee is still in her wheelchair full time, and will continue to be bound to her chair until her bones reach full growth which is near 20 years of age.
Its still heartbreaking to see her sit patiently and watch her other siblings run around playing!
I just cant fathom her being tied down this way because of the lack of care from her insurance!!! Kaylees dad is working on a area to put a pool even if its a temporary one till we can reach something more permanent for Kaylee.

This is asking so much i know! We dont know what more to do, and were told to be free, and were givin the okay to ask for help through the community and our church group as we really dont want to go into a big legal process. Thank you to all! Feel free to share on your social media, that will help our little angel reach her “legs” ❤️ Please keep Kaylee in your Thoughts and Prayers,
Thank you!!

So I'm getting asked what KK is doing now, while we wait for a disability pool. While we get started on permits/plans, Kaylee has been doing lots of swimming at her aunt & uncle's pool. When school starts she will be doing PT as possible in a wheelchair. We still need to hire help for home care/PT.

Feel free and get ahold of me for more comments or questions.

Please keep us in your Prayers as we want to likewise ♥️
