My name is Ashley and I have set up this GoFundMe fundraiser page on behalf of my sister and brother-in-law, Amber and Jammey Williams. Their 14 month old son and my nephew Michael is currently fighting a lung infection in the PICU at Texas Children's Hospital in Katy, Texas. He was admitted to the local ER at 5a.m. on 11/27 in respiratory distress and was transported via ambulance to Texas Children's on life support. He is currently on a ventilator and sedated to protect him from removing the equipment assisting him in his breathing and to also give his body a chance to fight off the infection. When admitted, his right lung was no longer functioning, but they have since got it working again. What we know so far is there is a bacteria present, but they are in the process of figuring out what exact bacteria it is. They also believe there is a viral infection. He is fighting a high fever which comes and goes. He is also on continuous Albuterol to help dilate his airways to help him breathe. Currently it is a waiting game to see if his body can fight off this sickness with the support given.
I have set up this GoFundMe to help assist Amber and Jammey with their medical bills for Michael, as well as assisting them with missed work to be with Michael in the PICU. Any donation no matter the size helps and is greatly appreciated! Help support my little nephew on his road to recovery :)
