She was admitted with severe abdominal pain and high fever on August 17th, and transferred to Northwestern on the Saturday the 25th. They could not determine the source of infection or the fluid that had amassed in her body cavity. She had extreme high fever on numerous days. There have been 5 surgical procedures, some failed to produce any relief or diagnosis, in addition to 5 CT scans, 2 MRIs, 2 X-rays, and an ultrasound, plus many blood test.
As of today Nicole (Maduri) Cochran had been hospitalized for almost four weeks in three different hospitals. Lastly, she is still being treated as an out patient at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago, Illinois. She was released from the hospital, with an active I-V for antibiotics, and three drains. for the massive amount of fluids that accumulated in her body cavity. Her hospital bill will in the 100s of thousands.
These bills are mounting and they have a substantial Co-pay insurance plan. It would be awesome if they can get some help with these bills and help defray the childcare costs and the future home recovery care costs for Nicole.
Our plan is to pay for all the child care while Nicole was in the hospital, she has 3 children that needed after school care. We also will provide for care for Nicole during the first few weeks of her recovery at home and her non-reimbursed physical therapy. We also bought a special chair for her to sleep on. She needs to sit up as long as the drains are active. She will need continued medical care for at least two months. The money will be used to cover that out of pocket, along with the co-pay of all medical bills, hospital costs, drugs, Doctor bills. All funds will be disbursed as Nicole and Brian request.
I have set up a separate account in my name to process the funds collected from the "fund me" account. Other people have also given me money for help and I have place all such funds in the checking account as well. Jane and I have also sent them money and will continue to do so if needed.
Jane and I along with Brian(Nicole's husband), Tom, and Judy Cochran ( other grand parents) thank you for your support and prayers.
Lastly, for your information, I am a Licensed Certified Public accountant and Trustee of numerous trusts of my client base. You can be assured all funds will be used exclusively for our daughter's recovery and her family's well being.
Again, We sincerely thank for your time in reading our request and sending your support and /or prayers ... Nick and Jane
