Since then, it has been a very long road to recovery with multiple bumps along the way, including a tracheotomy and feeding tube. The formula for the feeding tube is not covered by insurance nor are the suction catherters that she uses 2 of a day. Her therapy is limited by what health insurance covers. She receives 30 visits per calendar year and after that, it becomes an out of pocket expense. At this time our mom receives 2 days a week of both physical therapy and occupational therapy, in addition to 5 days a week of speech. Her insurance coverage ended in April. We have spent the last 2 years making sure that her services are not interupted, but unfortunately we cannot do it on our own for much longer.
Here's the thing....when our mom receives proper therapy, she shows tremendous improvement.
We have been at our parents' side from day one helping in every way we can. With our mom unable to work and our father (a U.S. Army Veteran) working 2 jobs, everyday living expenses have become hard to keep up with. With thousands upon thousands being spent, this GoFundMe will help pay medical bills and other living expenses.
Please feel free to pass this along and share it with friends and family.
