Help the McKelvey's

On October 3, 2012. My Husband Josh was involved in a major car accident. As a result of the accident, he was airlifted to Sutter Roseville Medical Center with extensive brain swelling and brain bleeding. His also suffered a fracture on his left knee and a shattered knee cap on his right. His had major facial injuries and his right eye socket was also crushed. He spent a total of one month in the hospital. While Josh was in the hospital, our 9 year old son Connor became very ill. He was very lethargic and vomiting. On October 29th, I rushed him to the ER at Sutter Roseville Medical center. Apparently all the signs I was witnessing was signs of Type 1 Diabetes. In a matter of days, he had lost almost 30 pounds. When they tested his blood sugar, he was at 1200. After some time in the ER, he was transferred to the PICU unit at Sutter Memorial and was released 2 days later. During this time I had my Husband at one hospital and my Son at another. They are both home now. Josh is recovering well but still has several surgeries ahead of him. Connor is doing great and we are all learning how to manage his Diabetes. As a result of everything that has happened, we are facing lots of medical bills, monthly health premiums and yearly deductibles. We also have exhausted our savings account and we are a family of 5 living only on Disability. If you can help in any kind of way, we would appreciate it. Any donation is welcome. Thank you.
