On Tuesday August 20th, after complaining of an intense headache, Jonathan suffered a hemorrhagic stroke in his brain. He was rushed to Atrium Health Lincoln from which he was then air lifted to Charlotte. He is currently in the intensive care unit in Charlotte.
CT scans confirm an emergency craniotomy was successful at removing the blood from his brain. He is showing progress and is responding well to treatments, though we know the road ahead for Jonathan will be a long and challenging one.
We are asking for assistance for Jonathan, Stephanie, and Nora while they face the weeks and months ahead.
Funds raised will cover their mortgage, utilities, groceries, and to make their home more accessible, and anything else they may need as we learn more about his prognosis and a plan for moving forward.
We will update on his status as we can. Please direct all questions to Jeremy, Anie, Dane Abernathy, or Andrew Shipley so that Stephanie can focus on Jonathan and Nora at this time. Thank you for understanding!
For scheduling visits, please go to https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/visitingjonathan
, click on "ways to help", find the calendar, and schedule a time to see him on the CaringBridge website that way Stephanie doesn't directly have to handle it. Please look for a confirmation on your visit request before coming, as doctors appointments, etc. may come up.
