On March 31, 2017, Jayce Middleton (1 years old) started having seizures and was transported to Lexington Hospital in Lexington, Ky. The doctors were unsure what was causing the seizures. After weeks of testing, Jayce was diagnosed with a brain tumor on August 17, 2017. Due to the severity of the brain tumor, Jayce had brain surgery on September 6, 2017. Surgery was performed successfully, and Jayce was released on September 8th, 2017.
After being released for only 3 days, Jayce began vomiting (non-stop) and was emergency transported to Lexington Hospital. After 2 CT scans and 2 MRIs, it was determined that he had a blood clot in his brain (same area of surgery). Also, the doctor noted that a new spot appeared on his brain near where the first tumor was removed. After 7 days, the doctor released Jayce and recommended the following treatments:
1) Blood Clot - Inject 2 shots daily and perform follow-up on November 14, 2017.
2) Spot on Brain - Follow-up on November 14, 2017.
Jay and Ashley Middleton is the mother and father of Jayce. The family lives in Middlesboro, Ky and Lexington Hospital is approximately 3 hours away. Jayce's medical insurance does not cover all of his expenses. Jayce's parents have received medical bills that total over 100k. Also, the family have exceeded the allocated vacation time, and no longer being compensated for additional days off. The series of events have a significant financial impact on this family.
