Elizabeth's Recovery Fund

On Wednesday, January 21st I was at work meeting with a very nervous new student when I started feeling odd. I had a headache that had lingered since the weekend. This was more than just a head ache I had burning behind my eyes and nose too! Then I lost my vision, called for help, and lost my speech too! I thought I was dying. Was rushed to the ER by ambulance. 
They discovered through many tests that I had three small strokes. I had lost my left side and all speech completely. 
Over the course of the next three days I was monitored, tests performed, medication, and rehab started.  Originally I was looking at a week or longer in the hospital but through everyone's prayers I was released early and got to go home on Saturday. The doctors were amazed and kept saying it was a miracle that I was already going home.

Now, I have PT/OT three times a  week for three hours a day for six to eight weeks. I have no leave left after having Jackson so it will be uncompensated time off.  In addition, we will have to hire someone 12 hours day to help when Theo has to return to work. An additional expense. Plus, medical bills that are going to start rolling in.
