JP's Medical Expenses


One afternoon in early March, JP prepared a delicious steak dinner and planned a nice evening for he and Robin. That evening, he choked on a bite of that steak, which led to him aspirating part of it into his lung, which led to a trip to the ER to have it suctioned out. This procedure led to a small tear in his esophagus, which ultimately led to a very large abscess in his abdominal cavity. From there, things just snowballed from bad to worse - to ultimately JP being admitted to ICU with sepsis and multiple other infections and abscesses. He's been literally fighting for his life for weeks now, and while he has had some improvement, he is still not out of the woods. In the meantime he has had multiple procedures to try and repair all the damage.

All of this notwithstanding, the bills are piling up FAST. The medical bills alone are going to be unbelievably huge, not to mention while he continues to fight to get better neither he nor Robin can work. They do have short-term disability coverage, but that takes weeks to kick in and in the meantime there's no income to take care of their daily needs.

JP has blessed everyone he's come in contact with in some way, and there are LOTS of us who love him dearly and are praying fervently for his recovery. It's going to be a long road, though. Even after he kicks all this infection to the curb, there's going to be rehabilitation, occupational therapy, and so on. If JP and Robin have blessed you in some way, won't you bless them back by making a small donation towards his recovery?
