The money raised will be used for ANY and EVERY thing the family deems necessary from medical bills, food, hotels, gas or monthly bills.
Starting a Go Fund Me was a calling from God for family frineds of Heather. Heather's sister Laura, will have complete access and control of the account.
Below is a direct quote from Heather's sister Laura regarding the circumstances around Heather's health.
"Last week she had been complaining of the back of her calf muscle going down to her ankle hurting and not being able to hardly walk or touch, she went to the dr on Monday and went to Taylor County at 3 the same day to have a ultrasound to confirm if it was a blood clot of infection of the skin. She was told it was a blood clot and she followed back up with her dr the same day and was told to take baby aspirin and a few more things.
On Tuesday morning she wanted Craig to wake her up when he left for work bc she was taking our sweet Landree to her 2 month check up and shots. In the meantime Craig had already left and I think she had already got dressed and ready, she by the Grace of GOD got her phone and called Craig to call ambulance she was going to pass out, he immediately called his mom bc thank you GOD again she lives rite by them she got to her and she was laying in the floor beside their bed, Craig rushes in and she told him it was hard for her to breathe and it hurt he started to give her cpr til ambulance got there. Once they got there they hooked her up and gave her cpr all the way to greensburg. Yes she did loose heart beat and all and she came back, thanks to our Almighty GOD!
She was transported by helicopter to downtown Nortons where we are at this moment diagnosed with 2 blood clots one in each lung. She was able to go down yesterday around 4:10 est to cath lab for them to put line in and start breaking the clots, she come back to ICU where lines are still in sending sound waves to break those clots. Last night her blood got to thin so she was removed from blood thinner and also the lines that are breaking clots. She was put back on blood thinner this morning. Her kidneys are not functioning like they are supposed to but we have seen kidney dr and he said that was to be expected bc her kidneys got no flow of blood for however long. They would start working and producing more urine as time goes.
She is on a vent and she is sedated bc they want the machine to breathe for her so that she can be relaxed and she was sometimes not breathing with the machine. They want her to be comfortable and relaxed until we can get these clots fixed. Our next big thing is making sure that the clots that we're broke have not bled elsewhere. After that we will go with seeing if she has any brain damage. Some ask if she conscious, no bc they have her sedated. Her pupils are doing what they are supposed to and yesterday in the flight here she did move her wrist and foot so those are good signs!
There has been an outpouring of prayers going up for her and our family! We simply cannot thank you all how much it means to us! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we can't get through this without the prayers and our almighty GOD! We are putting our full trust in him to see Heather through this time of life!
I have to be so strong for my sister and my parents, and it's so hard on me! I never in a million years thought that I would see my sister like I have, it's hard on this soul yall there is no words to describe!
I pray that if someone doesn't know the Almighty God that i serve that you will ask him into your heart! You never know what tomorrow holds I have seen this first hand, but I do know who holds tomorrow! He is a GOD that is good all the time and helps us in the worst storms of life!!
I wanted to clarify everything for everyone, bc I know things get confusing and different things get said!"
