On September 6 my best friend and her family lives changed drastically. Her grandson Amiias was found unresponsive and was rushed to the Children's hospital.   He had multiple seizures and was not breathing.   He was in ICU not breathing on his own..not eating on his own and requires  24 hr 7 days  a week care.. my best friend was not able to work through all this and will not be able to work a full time job when he gets home either. Her roommate who paid half the bills has also moved out..and it has left my best friend in a really tough place financially. Her roommate and her were an amazing team and worked great together to make sure the babies were taken care of. Now she is left to figure it out by herself. As of today Amiias is not in ICU but still in the hospital.. A few weeks ago they said he would never breathe on his own. When they attempted to take his breathing tube out the first time it was unsuccessful and they said he needed to be on a ventilator to survive. A few days later they tried again and he was able to breathe. They then said he would never eat on his own and would need a g-tube to survive..a week later with all the prayers and  the grace of God he is now drinking bottles and eating on his own. When told she needed to quit her job she was originally told she would get financial assistance for being Amiias care taker. But because he doesn't require any medical equipment at the time she doesn't qualify anymore. However he still may not have the ability to walk on his own and his brain may not function as a normal human being.   I am asking to please help my Bff as she needs all they help we can give.   Even when Amiias is ready to come home..there will be medical providers there 6 times a week and there is NO way my Bff is going to be able to keep a full time job  and take care of 3 grandbabies. That is right, she also has 2 other grand kids she is taking care of.  She is always taking care of everyone and never asked for help and I just want to take away any other stress I can. Anything will help with  her wipes.. I am confident if she can just get enough help to get her through these next couple months while she takes time to focus on Amiias and balancing all 3 babies she will bounce back and figure it out like she always has. It will just take some time to adjust to things while Amiias is getting ready to come home. Please any amount that you can spare will help her and her family. My heart hurts for her and I would appreciate any donation. Thank you everyone in advance.51555028_1601398079367068_r.jpeg
