Michelle Smart's Fund

So our beautiful Michelle went in to have a pretty simple procedure done at the Maryborough Hospital.  What was meant to be a day procedure turned into nothing less than a nightmare.  Whilst they were operating on Michelle they nicked a main artery to her heart which obviously resulted in massive amounts of blood loss.  They rushed her to Hervey Bay hospital to then have no less than 5 blood infusions.

She almost died.  

She was in intensive care for 3 days and in the surgical ward for another 5. She is now home.  Yay!  

Needless to say she is very lucky to be alive today.

What was meant to be a recovery time of a couple of days has now turned into around 10 weeks.  

As one can imagine a devastating turn of events as this is  not only emotionally taxing but extrememely financially hard as well.  Michelle has and is always there for everyone and I think it would be really nice to give her a surprise of something I know she would never ask for but would be greatly appreciated.  No matter how big or small every cent will count. 

Thank you so much
