Jimmy (Boogie) in our hearts

James (Boogie) Miskimins was critically rushed to Alexian Brothers Hospital on Saturday Aug 11th, 2018 having suffered from an Aortic Embolism. This triathlon of embolism spread throughout his entire body leaving him paralyzed with fatal blood depriving organ failure. Doctors had to urgently take Jimmy through a life saving surgery to rid his body of some of the many lethal clots as well as stop them from causing permanent multiple organ death. James underwent 4 death dealing catastrophic surgeries within 4 days to  extract any dead tissue and repair prominent organs that had already been permanently damaged by these emboli. Jimmy is currently in a medically induced coma and receiving mechanical ventilation. He is also requiring nonelective Dialysis and sustaining Blood Plasma and Platelets. Jimmy is very Critical,  his family has been informed to prepare and let God and prayers lead him through this pernicious time. Boogie is a fighter and has astounded physicians who gave very slim percentages as to the outcome of his surgeries, yet was proof of a miracle.  James & Karen have been married 17 years this April. Karen has been by Jimmy's side since he arrived at the hospital on Aug 11th.  Jimmy and Karen also have two daughters Alyssa 12 years old and Marissa age 8. These funds will immediately help the Miskimins Family with ongoing urgently needed  medical treatment. This medical treatment is needed to sustain his life. James had recently been let go from his employment at the time of his emergency. So presently they are a one income family. The Miskimins Family would be so grateful to have help with daily necessities as well as utilities including funds to help support their two daughters.  Even the smallest donations will be greatly appreciated. Keeping Jimmy and his family in your hearts with PRAYERS, will go further than any dollar amount that could ever be given.
