Roger Kimbler's Medical Expenses

As most of you are aware, my father, Roger Kimbler, suffered a stroke on Wednesday, May 27, 2015. He was admitted to Baylor Irving on Friday, May 29, 2015. It was discovered that he had a stroke the size of 5cm (about 2 inches) and that this stroke should have killed my father or at the very least paralyzed him. We were also told that he was in renal failure and liver failure, his blood pressure was very unstable and his oxygen and co2 levels were off. So, we prayed. We reached out to many of you and you prayed along with us. By God's amazing Grace, my father was still here and fighting. In the days to follow, we would have ups and downs. My father's kidneys and liver seemed to be doing better and correcting themselves. His heart rate started to become regular. He had his memory and was able to hold normal conversations with the people in the room. However, we weren't out of the woods yet. No only was his blood pressure still an issue but his oxygen and co2 levels were not where they needed to be. My dad was put on a bipap machine that he was required to wear throughout the day. Over the next few days, we were able wean him off the machine to only use during the night. He is now wearing a cpap machine when he sleeps. On Tuesday, June 9, 2015, my father was moved from Baylor Irving to Ethicus in Grapevine. This is more of a rehabilitation hospital that will help my dad regain his fine motor skills and help correct his slight speech issues. While we are very blessed and thankful that my father survived all of this, we have been told he may stay in the rehab facility for another 30 days. Because of this, my father will be unable to work and bring income into the household. He will also be responsible for his medical bills once this is all completed and behind us.

I know my father would never ask for help, so I am doing it on his behalf. Any money raised during this campaign will be used directly for medical expenses and lost wages during this difficult time period.

Thank you again for all of your prayer and support. We appreciate it more than you know!
