After years of battling lupus, our love Kristie Lynne was very recently diagnosed with Stage 2B cancer in her uterus/cervix. The combination of the cancer and lupus made her blood “sticky” which then lead to a heart attack and a several day-long stay at the hospital. During this hospital stay, they installed her chemo port. A few days later on her way back from her 2nd confirmation of the cancer diagnosis, she suffered a pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis, resulting in yet another hospital stay. While recovering, they realized that the chemo port had created a massive infection, leaving her blood septic and Kristie in need of kidney surgery and open heart surgery to remove a severe mass of “vegetation” in one of her valves. These surgeries were a success and she was ready to finally leave the hospital after her seemingly indefinite stay so she could kick cancers ass... 2 days ago, Kristie had a severe stroke that has left the right side of her body paralyzed, with little to no responsiveness to the left side of her brain. The doctors fear she will likely never speak or use the right side of her body again.
In an effort to help relieve some financial stress, we are asking for your help. Bryce has not been able to work consistently, and fears any job he finds will be a struggle with his needing to be available at a moments notice for his wife.
We will make updates as we have them. Thank you in advance for your prayers and generosity.
