Mary Nell Shows Medical Transport

On November 5 after just arriving in Branson, MO with her husband, for a Christmas vacation, Mary Nell Shows experienced a massive ruptured brain aneurism. She was taken by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Springfield, MO where she has been receiving the most excellent care from Mercy’s ICU medical staff. (The nurses and doctors have been great in their medical care and compassion towards Mary Nell). Though she experienced significant trauma from the bleed in her brain, miraculously a clot formed which saved her life. Mary Nell has since, made progress toward recovery, which includes just recently having surgery to place a permanent shunt in her brain to drain excess fluids. The aneurysm will still need to be repaired once she gets back home. The next step in her recovery is to return to Jackson, MS so that she can begin rehabilitation therapy and to have the aneurism repaired. Returning to Jackson, is important, so that family and friends can better assist in providing the best care possible for her. Mary Nell is unable to walk or even sit up on her own at this time. She still has a feeding tube in place. Obviously she is unable to travel by road in ambulance. The family is asking for help on her behalf, in funding medical air transportation from Springfield, MO to Jackson, MS. The estimated cost for this transportation service is between $13,000 to $15,000. So far medical insurance is covering the cost for her medical services, but the insurance will not cover this additional expense. It is anticipated that the doctors will release Mary Nell for medical transport as soon as this Friday, December 1st. The family has been overwhelmed by the support and prayers of so many who know Mary Nell and her condition. We are a family of faith, and are so grateful for God’s goodness and faithfulness even during such difficult and challenging times. If you are able to financially support this mission to return Mary Nell home, she and the family would be so grateful.
