Doctors and staff are calling Jacob’s survival an absolute miracle, but the real fight now has begun. Jacob spent the next two months in the PICU at rainbows and would improve a little each day. Brain scans show no major cognitive damage but there is damage to other areas of the brain. Jacob can not speak yet but will smile at his mom when she talks to him. He continues to fight everyday! Day after day Jacob would experience terrible “Neurostorming” which were similar to having seizures. He has had a Tracheotomy and a feeding tube put in, along with dozens of other procedures.
There is a treatment available using a “hyperbolic chamber” that can potentially reverse the damage to Jacob’s brain. But of course, it’s not FDA approved and therefore not covered under insurance. The cost for everything will be significant! Funds will be distributed directly to the family for Jacob's recovery and hospital bills. Thank you for taking the time to read our story and any amount you could donate would be greatly appreciated!
