Emergency surgery was performed on Monday. The surgeons could only give us a rough estimate of the cost due to the fact that it would be very complex and they did not know what they would be working with once they began. After 10 painstaking hours of surgery, they informed us of the wonderful news that they had reset her pelvis the way they wanted to, but the cost since then has only risen as other unseen complications have come up.
We have had Ellie since she was six weeks old, and in that time she has become an irreplaceable part of her family. We are so grateful that she is still with us and that she will get through this. She is a fighter and she has youth on her side, but the cost of her stay at UT and the multiple surgeries they had to perform are backbreaking to our family of college students juggling classes, work, and extra-curriculars. Any amount of financial aid that you are able to provide is greatly appreciated, and please know that you will be helping both Ellie and our family get back up on their feet after this tragic accident. If monetary aid is not an option for your situation at this time, please consider sharing our GoFundMe with your friends and family so that her story may be reached by more people. Thank you for reading.
