My mom Shelley’s Christmas miracle

Yesterday morning my mom was rushed to the hospital because she had a ruptured aneurysm. She had to have emergency open heart surgery. She is still on the ventilator and unable to move her left side.
My mom (Shelly Springstead)is an AARNP in the Villages. Family  Practice of Southern Trace is her practice. She has two employees that work with her and are depending on her.  My brother and I live with her and know how hard the next few months are going to be for our family. She is going to have weeks to months of a difficult and painful recovery. 
I am asking you to donate in order to take some stress off of my mom during this time so the only thing she will have to worry about is fighting for her life.  If you’re looking for a way to make a difference this Christmas season, please consider my family.
