As many of you know, Kaylee has been through an insanely terrible time of sickness and complications these past 4 months. The blood clots that brought her to the hospital in August have since been broken up and removed. What is keeping her in the hospital are the hospital germs, bacteria and complications. She has battled :
*aspirated pneumonia 4xs
*broken jaw from being ventilated that had to be wired shut for weeks but is now off
*Feeding tube that punctured straight through her liver (which has only happened 7xs in recorded history, now make it 8) :'(
*Bedsores - like multiple ones! Some they have been able to do skin grafts but some are still too raw to be grafted.
Needless to say, we NEED to get her home & away from those germs but she will need round the clock care that Medicaid doesn’t pay for.
After much prayer and humility, Allen and Merise have agreed to let me start a GoFundMe for them! They are simply overwhelmed with everything she will need to get home and desperate enough to accept the help from dear friends and family who have been asking for the opportunity to give.
For every day you lie in a hospital bed, you lose 3 days of muscle. She is skin & bones with no muscle after her 4-month battle. It would be a long battle but one worth fight every step of the way to enjoy this sweet smile & soul! What’s left of her muscles tissue has atrophied & she is all curled up & can not walk. But we believe that after getting over this, coupled with her fighting spirit & the divine help of the Holy Spirit, she could walk again! It may take two years but that’s ok!
I know initially some of their needs will be:
* Specialized wheelchair
* Wheel chair accessible van
* Wheel chair accessible ramp to the house
* Lift and rails to get her in and out of bed
Kaylee is filled with a joy that delights and uplifts everyone around her! We appreciate your love, sweet words and most of all your prayers! Join us in praying that it would be God's will to heal this girl back to the healthy, active young lady she was before she entered the hospital. She has already overcome the odds MULTIPLE times and for that we give all the praise, credit and thanks to Jesus.
