He was rushed to the hospital where they struggled to figure out their medical insurance and how it works while out of the country. The hospital that they were at wanted $25,000 down to perform the surgery.
They finally decided to have Taylor transported back to the states where they could feel better about the delicate surgery that needs to be performed and performed quickly as blood clots and other long term damage could be a concern.
Taylor is still sitting in a hospital room in Mexico (as of 10:00am, Thursday, May25th) in severe pain awaiting the transportation back to Omaha.
That's where you all can come in. It looks like insurance should cover the surgery, however, it looks like it won't cover the expense of the immediate medical expenses and medical transportation, which can be extremely expensive. They've already had to come up with $25,000 non-refunadable just to get him back to Omaha. Out of pocket expenses will be around $40,000 and could end up being more.
For those that know Taylor and Kiley, they known how excited they were for this trip to Mexico, it was their honeymoon that they've been waiting for for 4 years and it was cut short after just one day.
On top of the physical implications and the emotional trauma, the financial stress can be debilitating. This is a practical way that we can come together as a community around two people that are loved by so many. If you aren't able to give, please lift up the Foster's in your prayers!
