With her take on the world and overcome anything attitude (which she credits to her family) she overcame what most would was say “no possible way”...
Lindsey's car flipped 6 times bumper to bumper, north
to south into on the NYS Thruway breaking
C1, C2, (Christopher Reeves fractures ) C6, C7 and T7 vertebrae. During her treatment, the most unfortunate event happened. They injected a total of almost
15,000 units knew substance called myobloc, botulinum
toxin B, into her cranial bed of nerves and paralyzed my vagal nerve. The nerve functions /controls north to south of your body from your esophagus to
your diaphragm and in between.
Lindsey underwent many intense life saving surgeries
through a large incision from her sternum straight through my belly button to her pelvis. She has had several feet of intestines and her gall bladder removed. A feeding tube was placed as she was told she would never eat on her own again. Lindsey has graciously persevered through this being a great mom to Jackson and having a career.
But in the last year the obstructions became so frequent, she was hospitalized countless times. In December she had to be rushed by ambulance to Brigham Womens Hospital in Boston where she had emergency surgery for another blockage. And again had her body sliced and down the middle with staples from her neck to her pelvis - each intestine was removed and scraped of scar tissue. She was there for a month during the holidays and just had to return unexpectedly. She lost her job, though is gracious to her employer as she feels like they did everything they could to keep her.
While Lindsey is back on being fed intravenously and isn't sure when she will be home, she has not given up hope for coming home and raising Jackson, with his dad and my good friend, Matt, and having her life back! Please help Lindsey with her medical expenses and her living expenses at home.
