"Wrinkles will only go where the smiles have been."
There will be a lot of smiling happening as Steve recovers from what has been his biggest challenge in life. On Sunday, May 21, our beloved husband, father, brother and everyone's friend, Steve Saville, suffered a heart attack leaving him in critical condition. To date, his miraculous recovery has shown just how amazing and vigorous Steve is. His love for life has kept him fighting, and he continues to amaze his team of Doctors on a daily basis. It's his love for Jill, Bailey, and life in general, which gives him the motivation to overcome these challenging obstacles. Steve has already come so far but still has a long way to go. His most recent challenge in this trying time is the removal of his left foot. This removal will result in a lot of recovery and rehab as he adjusts to his new life change.
Even, though Steve continues to take these challenges head on, you can only imagine how the medical bills continue to stack up. Steve's healing journey will go well beyond the ICU of Flagstaff Medical Center. While he and Jill love Flagstaff and are very thankful for the hospital care, he will have to endure many weeks of rehab outside of Flagstaff. Where that will take place, has yet to be decided.
So many of you have been praying for the Savilles and asking how you can help during this time. We have set up this "Go Fund Me" page to help smooth over all the upcoming financial challenges. With so many of us from all over the country, it is tough to know how we can help. The love and well wishes have been overwhelming and give us all the strength to get through this. It just goes to show how much of an impact Steve has had on so many people.
Steve has already conquered so much, but he still has a very long way to go, and that comes at a hefty price. For those of you that want to contribute to help ease the financial burden, it will be very much appreciated. Thank you to everyone for the contributions, prayers and well wishes, we are truly blown away by the support and love for our dear Steve.
