Medical&Living for Peggy&Alex Neese

**UPDATED STORY 2/24/18**
On December 9th 2017 my mother and brother were in a severe car accident(USAToday, Pensacola WEAR3 and PNJ each ran one story). They are lucky to be alive. My mother(62) had both legs crushed from her knees down, a broken neck, broken arm and a brain injury were among the worst of her injuries. She had over twelve surgeries before she was able to come home but it will be over a year before she might walk again. At least one more surgery will be needed within the next few weeks then she can try to stand for the first time in over two months. My brother(33) had a broken back{L3}, broken elbow and massive internal damage as well as a brain injury. I've become my mother's full time caregiver as she needs assistance with everything from basic hygiene to feeding. My brother needs less assistance with daily tasks but will be in his back brace for another two months so he can't drive or assist much. I'm also caring for my own two year old so with all that I'm unable to work myself. Anything and everything helps even if it's just a share. I try to keep updates on our page and all my accounts have been verified. Thank you.

{Original Post}
Saturday December 9th 2017 our lives changed. While taking Alex to work, my mother (Peggy Jean Davis-Neese) and brother (James Alex Neese) were in a severe car accident involving a suspected DUI driver. They both are lucky to have made it out of the accident alive but have injuries that will take months if not years to recover from. Peggy had both legs crushed and a head injury; initial surgery on her legs has been completed with two more surgeries scheduled this week but thankfully her brain bleeding has stopped. Alex has more severe injuries; he has a broken elbow(surgery scheduled for Tuesday or Wednesday), breaks in his back that we don't know the extent of just yet and massive internal damage which led to the removal of a section of his bowels. The seatbelt saved his life. Currently they are both in ICU units at separate hospitals but my mother will need inpatient care at a rehabilitation facility once she's released some time after the first of the year(doctors estimate on release). They haven't given us a timeline yet on when Alex might be released. They are both strong fighters and they will make it through this. The family and I want to thank everyone who stopped that night, knowing they weren't alone helps more than you could know, as well as the EMS and first responders, State Trooper BJM, the trauma surgeons and all hospital staff who continue to help them and my family. Sadly neither one of them had health insurance::UPDATE**I was informed Alex does have health insurance**and neither one is going to be able to return to work anytime in the near future. Anyone who is able to make a donation towards medical costs including the future rehabilitaion facility for my mother would be more than appreciated. Anytime and everything is helpful right now as they need to focus on healing. Thank you...
