She has a hard road ahead of her, with 9 broken ribs and a punctured lung. She was taken in the ambulance to the nearest hospital, where then was airlifted to a more fit hospital to support her needs.
She went under surgery to have 7 rib plates put in, and is still at the hospital being monitored due to the condition of her lung. It has been 6 days in the hospital, and she still has a long road of recovery ahead of her.
With all the cost added up it has become a very stressful time for Shelly, especially with having no insurance and not being able to work.
Shelly has always been a hard working, warm and generous woman. It will take time and healing for her to get back to her normal routine. With your support and prayers, we can help her move beyond this tragedy. Funds raised will help Shelly cover medical expenses and time away from work. Anything will help.
Thank you for taking your time to read a little bit about our moms situation. Any donations and prayers will be greatly appreciated. Enjoy every moment, life could be shorter than you think.
