Funeral Expenses for Jamie Ferguson

On the eve of Christmas, Jamie Ferguson suffered a brain aneurysm and is in critical condition at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida. At 5 am Christmas morning, a neurosurgeon told us they use a scale of severity with one being best case and five the worst possible. They move forward with surgery for people that are an one, two, or three on their scale. Words can not express our sorrow when he said Jamie is at five. The next words are what you do not ever want to hear from a doctor "I am sorry". We felt like that was it and they had given up. I have never cried so hard and felt so much pain. My wife, my life, the mother to our wonderful five year old boy, this can't be. We had the "normal day" just before so how can this be happening? I prayed along with a huge support of family, friends, and friend of friends. 7 am Christmas morning the neurosurgeon returns and introduces the brain aneurysm expert at the hospital. He repeats that Jamie is a five on their scale but because of her age they want to give her every opportunity so they are going to monitor her for the next two to three days. PRAYERS WORK! Jamie has made some improvements and now the team of doctors want to watch her progression over the next couple of weeks. The amount of love, support and prayers have been incredible and I understand why. Jamie is that special person that will listen if you need somebody to talk to. She would give you a place to live if you needed shelter and loved being there to help. With the new timeline, there are going to be many expenses. We ask for you continued prayers and any monetary contribution that will help provide financial support during this difficult time. We want to offer our sincerest gratitude to every single person that has said a prayer on Jamie's behalf. Prayers work and we feel strongly the lord has heard your prayers. May God continue to bless us all, Amen.
