George’s Recovery

As most of you know,  George was hospitalized on December 18th where he was being treated for pneumonia and sepsis. He went from walking into the hospital to being on life support in the blink of an eye. On December 22nd he was transferred to Mass General where he continues to fight. George has been in septic shock, requiring life support and dialysis every day. Doctors have not yet been able to pinpoint exactly the cause, but have discovered an aggressive blood infection that George’s body is continuing to fight. Countless tests have been ran, and are continuing to come back negative- leaving doctors stumped. Although he has had some good days , George is not out of the woods yet. The doctors believe he has another infection but have not yet been able to determine where. 
Once they are able to find the source of infection and treat George, they expect he will need to go to rehab after being on bed rest for an extended period. This will force him out of work for even longer.  The unknown is scary but we have faith in medicine, and the power of prayer. Along with the strength and courage we all know George to have, as doctors work day in and day out to find an answer.
George and Ashley were supposed to relocate to Florida on January 2nd, where they were both beginning new careers and a new life together. The financial burden has been significant as bills continue to pile up on a single income. Any donations made will be used towards George’s medical bills, as well as other bills he will be unable to pay  (such as his vehicle, insurances, cellphone, etc.), Any remaining funds will cover travel expenses as Ashley has relocated to Florida and will continue to be by George’s side as often as possible. 
We thank you for any donation big or small, for your thoughts, kind words and MOST importantly, your prayers.27048126_15162393200_r.jpeg
