Lexi Recovery from surviving Covid-19

Donation protected
Alexia "Lexi" Willis is an intelligent, humble, and outgoing young lady of Griffin, GA.  Lexi is the second oldest of five siblings. Lexi graduated from Griffin High School in 2019. Shortly after graduating, Lexi decided to become a caregiver. Lexi's passion is working with the elderly and children! She is very compassionate about all of her clients. She never missed work. She made many life-long bonds with all of her clients. 

On April 6, 2020, Lexi begin to experience symptoms of Covid-19. Lexi developed a fever of 102.7, which lasted for more than 72 hours. Lexi began to develop a dry cough.  On April 9, 2020, Lexi was diagnosed at Wellstar Spalding Regional with Viral Pnuemonia. She was tested for Covid-19. However, Lexi's fever did not break. There was a waiting period of 84 hours before receiving the results of the Covid-19 test. Lexi was advised by the Wellstar staff to quarantine at home upon the waiting of the results of the Covid-19 test. On the evening of April 11, 2020, a Wellstar Spalding Regional nurse called and stated, "Alexia Willis's Covid-19 results were POSITIVE". My family and I were devastated of this unexpected tragic news. It was a life-changing moment.

On April 12, 2020, Lexi's symptoms of Covid-19 worsened. Lexi was very short of breath. Lexi did not have breath to walk from her room to the restroom, which is only about 6 feet apart. Lexi was immediately rushed to Wellstar Regional Hospital for the second time in one week. Lexi was admitted into the hospital. It was very difficult departing from my daughter and not knowing the outcome. The only way I would be able to communicate with Lexi was via FaceTime.  After several hours went by, I called the hospital to check the status of Lexi. Lexi was suffering from dehydration. Lexi was immediately Tylenol and antibiotics.  Lexi was placed on 9ML of Oxygen. Lexi spent six long lonely days in the hospital fighting this virus. 

Lexi was released from Wellstar Regional Hospital on Saturday, April 18, 2020. Lexi has to continue to quarantine until full recovery. Lexi is still on a long road to recovery. Lexi is currently on Oxygen. Lexi is still experiencing excruciating pain. She is still fighting to overcome this virus. 

Unfortunately, Lexi did not have any medical insurance benefits. I am asking for support with the medical bills acquired during her hospital visit and ongoing doctor visits to assist my daughter in continuing to fight the fight of Covid-19.

Thank you for your prayers, love, and support,
Mom (Alyse Richards)
