It is unclear how long Lori will remain in the UNM hospital in Albuquerque. As of August 17 it has been four weeks that she has been hospitalized. She has been told she will have to go to a physical therapy rehab facility when she is released from the UNM hospital. Her stay at the PT rehab facility could be up to two weeks. When she is finally able to go home she will need home health care and outpatient occupational therapy. Lori has a long road ahead of her to get back on her feet and regain use of her left arm.
No matter how prepared a family may be, unexpected medical expenses can be devastating. This is especially true when a teacher’s salary is the main source of income. Lori is a fifth grade teacher at Manzano Mesa Elementary and has been with the Albuquerque public school system for the past eleven years. Before coming to Albuquerque she taught in Clovis, NM and Alabama. Her sons, Robert and Joshua, live with her and help with living expenses.
Any help you feel you can give is greatly appreciated.
