************Video clip of Trinity's progress from 10/17 to 11/19.
I am graciously asking for help to meet the needs of Trinity's medical&travel and family expenses for the New Year up coming appointments in Albuquerque. Thank you for taking the time to read about Trinity and her overcoming her trails.
With your help of any amount is greatly appreciated. This will help my family to meet our financial challenges to continue to meet co-pays/deductibles for Trinity to continue her therapies and hospital travels.
Trinity is continuing to amaze us and make tremendous gains with therapies. Trinity was 13 years old when she had suffered from a large stroke to her left side of her brain; to which, it effected her right side. Doctors say this is unusually for a young child to experiences(very rare), and a large stroke is normally common in elderly people; but why, at a young age of 13 and so large of a stroke? The stroke effected her ability to walk, speak, and the use of her right arm(right side aphasia). After two weeks of therapy, she suffered another stroke, "mini-stroke," as the Doctors called it. A stroke is a stroke, and by calling it mini, does not soften the cause and effect of it. My instinct, my gut, as well as my husband's, we demand an MRI, hence the mini-stroke was confirmed and not due to a fainting spell. And, soon after, Trinity was immediately scheduled for Brain surgery. A Carotid Artery Bypass was performed on 10/05. Trinity turned 14 years old seven days after surgery, and discharged 14 days after her birthday. She is a remarkable medical mystery to Doctors because all tests came back negative. Remarkably to rehabilitation therapists who never work with a stroke patient so young and who has gain so much in a short amount time. We are very thankful to have our Trinity and she is beginning to be more like Trinity everyday before she had the stroke. She takes everyday day by day and has not breakdown to ask why me? And, I can't be any more proud of how much she has overcome, relearning to talk, walk, restroom, using a fork/spoon, shower, write and brush her teeth. I am so very grateful she is doing most of these everyday task on her own now. I am very grateful for all the people in our lives, who prayed for Trinity, contributed monetary donations (thank you family, friends, and kind-hearted donors). And, Thank you in advance to new potential donors.
This is a very rare case for someone so young, even for a 13 year old to experience, but this impossible situation happen to my daughter Trinity. Trinity had suffered from a large stroke, which caused right side body paralysis and ceased ability to speak and currently is(10/05/18) going under brain surgery. She/we've been in the hospital at UNM Children's Hospital in ABQ since 9/02. Pervious to the stroke, she suffered a major migraine headache on 9/01 in Farmington NM. This immediate onset migraine caused dizziness, full body paralysis, and disrupted speech. Since 9/2 and weeks there after, Trinity has slowly regain right side arm and leg function and limited speech. She was making great progress with physical, occupational and speech therapy until a small set back of having a mini stroke again while being at physical therapy on 9/26. After an MRA, this confirm that her vessel had showed no improvements and the narrowing of her artery has got more narrow; therefore, why she has to have this surgery. This narrowing of this artery created a blot clot which led to the stroke. I am thankful for her courage and strength she has, she may be a shy girl but she is very strong. She loves the color blue, absolutely adores cats, an artist, love animes, fave boy band is BTS, loves music band, math and music (she plays the euphonium). My husband and I have been by her side patiently, diligently, awaiting everyday to recovery at her own pace but continuously encouraging her to fight to push herself. I am graciously asking for donations, any amount is greatly appreciated for our family to meet medical expenses and family expenses that surely exceeds the amount of income we do have. I appreciate your prayers, monetary donations and kind words of encouragement in advance. Thank you ALL very much family, friends and supporters.
