Hi, I’m Tracy, I am Jamie Peters mom, on aug 17th she was assaulted while involved in a road rage Incident. She was in ICU for 28 days, was not expected to survive, the next day she started responding! She’s is (hopefully only temporarily paralyzed on her left side) learning to speak and use her voice again, things are starting to click but we’re looking at a 2 year recovery. After 86 days of ICU, after care then rehab, she finally came home today. Before this happened Jamie had just started a new job and wasn’t eligible for insurance yet, I applied for Medicaid, unfortunately Medicaid is way behind due to Covid, so her case is still pending… due to that she’s only eligible for home health care nurse or She’d have to be taken to St. Louis daily or pay out of pocket for therapy, Jamie doesn’t need nursing, she’s in desperate need of therapy, to help her get her left side working, both options for therapy are pricey with the rising cost of fuel. This is also needed for any braces, equipment or other unforeseen bills. Jamie has a great support at home but it’s just not fair that she can’t get the needed therapy due to pending Medicaid ( still 3 to 6 months waiting period) any help is very appreciated, she’s a fighter and we feel positive that someday she will be herself again. Thank you.
