Bubba and Jazzy remained in ICU, Bubba slowly recovering and getting up with therapy. Jazzy remained unresponsive for days and on a ventilator. Bubba progressed enough to be discharged, good news! But, during a pandemic, this means that only one parent is now allowed to stay in the hospital with Jazzy. Mom, Angel, is now all alone at the bedside with Dad and the other children hundreds of miles away staying with family and recovering.
Jazzy had some steady gains, she began moving her hands and feet, opening one eye and could give a thumbs up on command. She began spiking fevers over the weekend and has a definite infection. Having had chest tubes, a broken pelvis that was surgically repaired, broken collarbone and ribs, there was a potential for infection. She began having seizures today and has been intubated and taken back to ICU.
It has been unbearably difficult for Angel to watch her first child struggle to recover, without anyone by her side to comfort her, listen to doctors or allow her to leave the bedside for a moment. The family was so far from home, lost all of their clothing and belongings and there is no possibility of earning any income while in this situation.
At this time, we are asking for donations to help with transportation, living expenses, food, and clothing for the family. For a family living on humble means to begin with, this has been devastating. Please help give mom and dad the means to be by their child's side, together and alleviate the worry of cell phones being shut off and feeding the children while they are so far from home and depending on family and friends while they recover. Every small donation will help. And please, keep the prayers coming.
The family would like to thank those who have already offered assistance. Her sister, Nina, has been travelling two hours to the hospital to bring supplies and offer comfort. She took the two children home with her when they were first discharged. James' sister, Cindy has donated money and has taken him and the children in to her home in Tulare. Thank you to Bobbi Flowers for travelling to pick James and the children up from the hospital. Thank you to Jewel for sending money to help with initial needs. Thank you to everyone who has said a prayer and have reached out to comfort the family.
Please donate as much as you can, when you can. It is going to be a long road. God bless you all.
