Help bring Vicki home

On Monday the 22nd of May this year Vicki Lackey was attending a normal day at work, She was about to finish her shift in the early morning but she suddenly had a great fall hitting her head on the ground and cracking her head open. She was rushed to emerald hospital for head scans for them to then find her brain had been bleeding. They did further scans to also find she had a ruptured Brain Anurysm which had caused the fall, they flew her to Princess Alexander Hospital to undergo an emergency Coil Embolization procedure, this procedure alone was very risky and scary although thankfully the surgery went well and had to have a tube inserted into her brain where the bleeding had been to help drain it out. She was then put on a breathing machine for almost 5 days since the fall and had then been moved to Royal Brisbane And Women's Hospital and in INTENSIVE CARE UNIT for almost 3 weeks. Once they had moved her to the Royal Brisbane hospital she had been going down hill again so they did some scans on her brain and found out that she would be needing a Coronary Angiogram procedure because she had blocked blood vessels so the new blood producing wasn't getting to where it needed to be causing a lot of swelling in her brain. She has had 3 Coronary Angiogram procedures. It also has been 3 weeks of her having the drain in her brain to help remove excess blood and fluids. They very recently have been trailing on taking out her drain to see if she has any leakages or not and so far unfortunately it has been leaking and are now looking into another surgery on putting a stint into her brain and have a line run to her stomach to help stop any leaking. Vicki is doing okay but there will be a very long road to full recovery for her. She is very very lucky to be alive and It is with great appreciation to everyone who has been there by her side and to all those sending such meaningful and heart warming thoughts through this awful time in her life. We are starting this GoFundMe to help raise money with any Medical bills, travel and accomodation costs due to Vicki and her husband Grant Lackey being unable to attend any work through this hard time. Her husband Grant has been off work for almost 4 weeks being only a contractor and not eligible for any sick or annual leave to help pay any bills so it has been a really tight and hard time for them both financially. It was also with great disappointment that Vicki had been declined a Work Cover claim, which they were hoping to get to help them out financially. It would mean the absolute world if anyone could find it in their heart to pay forward by donating money to help out these beautiful people struggling financially and emotionally. We also understand if you also are struggling financially and would love to pay it forward and cannot but your prayers and support are just as much appreciated and we thank everyone. Please help bring Vicki home for a safe and successful recovery, her family and friends are missing her dearly and we cannot imagine how much she is missing all her family and friends in return! If you have any questions or concerns please don't be hesitant to ask anything! Thanking everyone again for all your help and support, you all are truely amazing
