Kinley was in a horrible accident on Saturday night while she was out of town visiting family. She suffered a dog bite on her head causing a skull fracture. She was life flighted to the nearest hospital & underwent surgery immediately. Due to the trauma of the accident she also suffered a stroke.
Kinley is the sweetest, most loving & adorable 17m old little girl. You can't help but fall in love with her as soon as you meet her. She is strong & fearless. Kinley is a fighter! We all know she can beat this & she will but with such an accident like this comes a lot of expenses. Kinley is the youngest of 5 kids & both her parents work full time. Because the accident happened away from home they also have to deal with the expenses of transporting her back to the Houston area. This flight is not covered by insurance because it is not considered an emergency. They have been quoted as high as 100,000$ just to fly her home. Unfortunately that is only the beginning of a long road to recovery with lost work & medical bills not covered by insurance.
Please help lift the stress of finances off their shoulders so they can focus on getting their little girl the best medical treatment possible!
Neurosurgery took her to surgery on Saturday because she was leaking cebrebospinal fluid and they were worried about infection, they also removed some of the dead brain tissue. Unfortunatly Sunday she had to go back in for surgery to get a ventriculostomy drain. She was still leaking fluid & had a high fever. She came out of surgery just fine with the drain placed in her head. It looks like they will be on the Neuro Unit for at least 14 more days and at another month in the hospital.
As of last night her dad says she had an ok day & moved her left side a little bit. She doesnt feel good but has been a trooper. All the nurses just love her to pieces and say she is by far 1 of the most well behaved babies they have taken care of.
Today (10/28) She recieved a PICC line & is talking a little bit more but is very restless & fussy. They did another CT scan today & thank you Jesus she does not need another surgery.
Please PRAY for her & pray that this fluid will stop leaking. Pray for no infection.
Pray Pray Pray
Jeremy and Angela have a long road of recovery ahead of them with Kinley. They have both been at her bedside since the accident and they need our love & support. Please pray for the other kids as they are at home missing their parents and their little sister.
