Medical ongoing needs for My Son Hunter

As the story continues through my eyes, Hunters Mom. January 1st, 2019 began a life changing Journey for my son Hunter (24).  Now moving into day 53 and still Hospitalized, Hunter who had started two weeks prior mid December with flu like sysptoms...rapid deteriation of his body, spiked fever, loss of weight and severe Joint pain, Doctors in the ER came to discover that Hunters entire body was filled with infection. I was advised Hunter was as Malnutritioned as a Holiscost survivor and considered a walking deadman. They feel the infection had been building up over the last 8 to 10 months. Within a 24 Hour period on January 2,  Doctors had requested that Hunter be placed on Dr. Induced Life Support to keep him alive, in which he would stay Venelated for the next 9 days. Coming out of Sedation was nothing short of a Miracle on January 10, yet discovering Hunters infection was now so toxic that it had spread to his Lungs with full blown Pneumonia covered in Black Bloody spores, with Doctors describing it as being blown in the Chest with a Shot gun. Damage and infection also worked on both the Heart Tricuspid Valve and Mitral Valve along with a hole that would soon appear. This comes after the infection entering both Hunters Left Shoulder and Left Wrist and needing immediate surgery on January 20th to remove the toxic fluid infection. Surgery was successful and now Doctors worked around the clock to prep him for the Open Heart Surgery and Decortication of both lungs. Heart Surgery was successful on February 2. Hunters life has been saved and now entering a new Chapter of Recovery. Rehabilitation with continued PT and daily pain management. Getting Heathy, back on his feet and going to work for this young man will come in time, but isn’t in the picture for a minimal of 4-6 months. Insurance is capped on his allowed Hospital stay and care to end within the week. I write this on Hunters behalf as he will be needing to find room and board since he no longer has his room he rented in Chandler. Ongoing Personal PT will have to be private pay. I only reach out for those who know how difficult it is to bounce back from Medical Financial burdens. Thank you again to all the Family and Friends support you have showed and continue to show everyday. Prayers have been answered and now the healing begins ♥️
