Rooting for Rubi ❤

Anyone who knows Rubi, knows how much joy she brings to everyone she meets. We often laugh and call her the local celebrity! Recently, as many may know, she has been hospitalized over 2 1/2 weeks ago at Children's hospital for three different viruses including RSV. While these viruses have been in her body, they've been a lot for her to handle. She had multiple issues going on and the choice we made for her to be intubated. We were so excited when they took her off of the ventilator and things seem to be going well. Unfortunately, Rubi wasn't quite ready for that change. Currently, she is back on the ventilator due to some unforeseen complications.

Jess and Ray have been by her side the whole time. They have been lucky enough to have family medical leave, which protects their jobs. Jess' sick pay has been exhausted, and as you can imagine the expenses of not getting paid at work, parking and food alone are really adding up, not to mention medical bills that they will be receiving.

I know they probably would be against this, (and have no clue that I'll doing this.... Hi guys ) but these two are two people that would do anything for anyone. Jess is the type of person that you want to be your friend. She is always someone who gives, helps and supports others when they are in need, or just because she wants to be kind. Ray is always willing to lend a hand and will help anyone out.

Please, if you have anything to spare, I know these three will be so appreciative and humbled. Also, please hold them all in your prayers and pray that Rubi stays strong so she can finally go home.

With God all things are possible.
