On July 22nd, Marlo Dillon, my wife and mother of 2, was admitted to Stonecrest hospital for blood-loss. After 10 units of blood, 10 units of plasma, 3 units of platelets and 2 surgeries she has stopped bleeding. The first two days she was unconscious and non responsive, one hour before the EEG test to see if she had any brain activity she woke up. While in the icu her family, close friends and prayers from 5 states have sustained and supported Marlo as she slowly heals. She is still on a ventilator in the ICU because of the fluid build up in her lungs and multiple organ failure. They have stopped feeding her after a couple of days because her stomach/liver is not digesting the food. When she is strong enough she will be transferred to a rehabilitation facility to help her breathe and walk on her own.
Marlo Dillon is the best friend anyone could ask for, and she is always the life of the party. She lives to care for others and help them when times are tough. She never says no to a friend or a coworker in need. She has also never met a stray dog she didn't want to take home. However, motherhood is where she really shines. Her 2 beautiful daughters are a testament to the woman she is and has always been. As a wife Marlo has always supported and encouraged me to keep pushing myself. Without her support, I would not be the man that I am today. When I had to work a full time job while taking a full class load she was there every step, and because of her support I was able to achieve the career that I currently enjoy.
The second week she was in the icu her recovery was quick, she was interacting with the people around her and was able to speak and eat a little. Three days have passed and she developed pneumonia, she was quickly intubated and sedated for 4 days. They had to move the tubes in her mouth to her throat with a trichotamy.
Her recovery has been slow and your donation will go toward Marlo's medical bills and extended rehabilitation.
