When he got the the hospital, doctors didn't think he would make it. He was in a coma for 4 weeks, he was in an almost vegetative state. We had no idea what he would be capable of. When he woke up he had no idea what happened to him or how long he had been there. He couldn't breathe on his own, he had pnemonia, he couldn't talk, he had no reflexes and I didn't know if he would ever be the same. Still doctors had little belief that he would make it. I stayed by his side every day and every night. Family and friends came to visit him and show him love since the doctors said that would help. When he woke up on March 27th, he could only communicate thru blinking. I didn't think he would remember things but he remembered everything and everyone! He video chats our kids and his sister every day and is so happy to be coming back around! Jerry is now learning how to walk(something they didn't think he would ever do again) He can move all his limbs, his strength is slowly coming back! After he is released we plan to move to North Carolina to be closer to his sister because he is going to need so much support going through rehab.
I haven't been working since my husband has been in the hospital and our finances are almost depleted.
I'm hoping to raise some money to help us move. The hospital bills are over $1 million dollars because we had no health insurance.
Please if you can and are willing to help my family donate what you can
