Hi! I have started this gofundme for Greg Reed Jr. He was in an accident at his house, he was building his garage out back of their home and the sheets of wood fell on him when he was trying to get them up on the garage. He has been in the ICU since 9/14/2018. They already had to replace one of his vertebrates in his spine, and many more obstacles to over come. He is paralyzed from the waist down. We all know Greg is a strong man. The family and himself are going to need all the help they can get. You know Greg is the type of guy to go out of his way for others. Any amount isn't too little. Thanks again for all the love and support for Greg and his family at this time. It has been overwhelming. They appreciate all of you. Please Share this and help us reach his goal.


Sooo... On top of everything that has been going on with Greg, his wife Dena was admitted to the hospital for a brain aneurysm that erupted. She had to have surgery Saturday night 12/8/2018 and will have to remain in ICU for 2 weeks to be monitored. Greg and Dena are both in Columbus in 2 separate hospitals and more than likely will not get to spend Christmas with each other or thier children. Let's help them by raising money for bills and the children. 


XOXOX Keep Praying!!!

2 months. Its been 2 months since Gregory's accident. Some days it feels like 2 days others 2 years. Our everyday normal has definitely changed. But throughout it all we've had some amazing support from everyone! We can't thank my sister Rema Sweidan enough if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be able to be with Greg the way that I am. Also Courtney Diane and Ben Steiner have been there at a drop of a hat when needed. Thomas Thompson and Alisha Thompson are amazing if it wasn't for them as well I wouldn't be able be here with Greg Reed. Joyce Colvin your the best you have also went above and beyond! We also want thank everyone else for all the help and support Mark Snyder Faten Abu Dahoud-Zahner and Gregory H Reed Sr. Are great at feeding us . So many other people to thank just know each and everyone one of you are appreciated so I just kinda wanted to update everyone on what has been going on and how Gregory is doing. So on September 14th is when Gregory shattered his C5. So on the initial MRI prior to surgery it just showed a shattered C5 and that was all. On September 15th Gregory went in to have surgery done. He had his C4 and C6 fuse together. They waited 3 days after surgery to do another MRI that's normal procedure. During surgery and after surgery his neurosurgeon was very optimistic everything look great. The morning after the second MRI was done is when we were told that there was injury done to the spinal cord between the C5 and C6 area. We definitely were not expecting that. So with there being actual injury to the spinal cord itself we really have no idea what the final outcome could be. But Gregory is working his butt off and doesn't plan on stopping until he gets his maximum output back. We are waiting for him to get stronger and gain more upper body movement and we will hopefully be transferring to Dodd Hall at the OSU Wexner Medical Center. He did get trached and was on the vent for sometime. But he has gained back enough strength that he has been off of the vent for over a almost 2 weeks now and is breathing on his own talking and eating regular food. But not before having to suffer from a collapsed lung and then undergoing an invasive surgery to clear out fluid from his chest cavity. They did find an abscess that ruptured which they think stemmed from the phenomena he had. After finding that they did have to remove part of his right lung because of scar tissue. Mind you before surgery and finding out he had a fully collapsed lung he was breathing all on his own off the vent pulling in 97% o2 thats how strong he is But he has bounced back great and now all of our Focus can be put on to rehab. But first he does have to get a little more stable before hitting it to hard.He has already went through a lot but has yet so much more to go through. He is still so positive and so determined. Last night was the first night he was able to actually use his hand and pick up a stress ball. It was such a huge accomplishment for him he hasn't grabbed anyting for 2 months. So every day we do see improvements their little ones but the little ones will lead to big ones. We think we will most likely be in Columbus by the beginning of December. He is excited to get down there and to work on his body and accomplish more milestones. All the love and support from everyone everywhere has been amazing. There is no way we would be as far as we are without all of you guys behind us it feels great knowing we have so many great people by our sides we truly don't know what the outcome will be in the end but we will just hope and pray and work our butts off to get the best outcome possible. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts and appreciate everything!! #REEDSTRONG
