Help Support Nick Webb

$26,551 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 364 people in 27 days
Thursday,  February 22nd 2018, Nicholas Webb was hit by a car going 40 mph when going after his skateboard that had rolled into the road. The accident happened right outside of our house, where his mother was able to rush out and find him face down on the middle divider. His mom had to hold his head up to make sure he wouldn't breathe in his own blood, or the gravel on the road. He was struggling to breathe, and an ambulance was called right away to take him to the hospital. He has bleeding and swelling in his brain, a cracked rib, and a small collapsed lung. We are so blessed we still have him with us. 

He is currently in the ICU at UC Davis Hospital, receiving the best care he could possibly get. He is in an induced coma, with a stint in his head to allow the pressure to be released and for the swelling to go down. No child should have to endure what he did Thursday, but we pray that he will be okay. It is undetermined how long he will have to be in the hospital for, but we are anticipating at least a month if not longer. 

Nicholas Webb is 14 years old, and a freshman at Del Campo High School. He is in ROTC, he has straight A's, and he is a really really good boy with the biggest heart. He is an avid lover of music, especially rock bands like Avenged Sevenfold. Nick is a great piano player, and has been learning how to play the guitar also all by himself. He has a great support group around him consisting of his family and his friends, the people who love him the most. 

Please help us support Nick in anyway possible, keep our little boy in your prayers. These incidents are very,
very costly, and nobody expects for anything like this to ever occur. We have set a goal at $100,000, but please help us in any way you can. Every cent of the proceeds will be going towards Nicholas's medical bills. 

My name is Michaela Webb, I am his big sister and I do not understand why these situations happen to good, innocent people. I am writing this with a heavy heart, and all I want is my baby brother back home. 

Please make sure your children look both ways before crossing the street, and keep our family in your hearts during this trying time. Thank you.

Update 5/22/18

The doctors hypothesize that most of the medication is completely out of Nick's system. His brain is still "waking up", he cannot talk/walk/sit up by himself yet. We have been moved out of ICU to the Rehabilitation floor. Nick is officially in the rehab part of his treatment.
Nick will be starting 3 hours of physical therapy every day. They will slowly start helping him use the bathroom by himself, talk, walk, and perform all other basic functions. He is showing prominent expressions (big smiles when he is happy, grimacing when he is in pain, angry faces when he is upset). Nick will also sometimes giggle when something particularly funny happens. All he has currently is a feeding tube, but hopefully he will be able to eat solids soon.
It is undetermined how much longer it will be until he can come home. The doctors hypothesize a month, but this process is a day-by-day sort of thing. Some days are easier than others.
Nick also likes to use his limbs a lot right now. He will kick his legs around, move his arms up and down, and hold your hand.
This part of the process has been very scary/stressful for Nick, he is coming off all of the pain meds and is very confused. We don't know exactly how conscious and aware he is, but he will make eye-contact with you and generally acknowledge your presence. We hope for better days ahead, and for more positive updates.

Thank you all for your kind words, prayers, and donations. Special thanks to Bob and Hellen Mitchell at Surf and Skate on Greenback Blvd, they have started. a fundraiser for Nick at their shop and have been so supportive. Also special thanks to Nikol Grubbs of Dutch Bros Sacramento who has also continuously been reaching out to us and doing everything she can to help also. We are so grateful for EVERYONE'S kind gestures during this time.

Thank you,

Webb Family

Update 3/12/18

About a week ago Nick was taken completely off of the coma medication, and as of last Thursday he has opened his eyes again! He is still in a "sleep-like" state due to the coma medication not being completely out of his system yet, so although he appears awake he really is not. Every day he becomes a little more conscious. We are hoping the medication will be completely metabolized by the end of this week or the week after. On Friday they removed the stint from his head (swelling is over), and they removed all of the wires that were stuck on his head to record any seizure activity. These were taken out because neither are no longer needed! Yay!

Today, Nick is beginning to follow you with his eyes, something he had not done a few days ago which is really great to hear because that is what the doctors are wanting to see. He is also jerking/lifting his arms and legs, and yawning/coughing. Nick still has the tube in his throat for the respirator (which I can't imagine being very comfortable) so he often attempts to spit it out or grab at it. The doctors say he passed the breathing test, so his lungs are capable of functioning on their own! They are worried his gag reflex may not be functioning yet (since a certain part of your brain triggers the gagging) so they are waiting before they take the tube out of his throat. Hopefully by this week they will decide it is safe to do so, or the more drastic step will be a tracheotomy if they have to go that route.

The doctors have also done an MRI on him!! This is the best news because originally they were saying they would not be able to complete an MRI for several weeks out due to the swelling, but the swelling has peaked and is now coming down! No more swelling!! Nick is so strong and so tenacious, it is no surprise to us that he is healing so quickly.

Today's update is a long one because we have already come so far in the last five days. Please everyone keep praying for Nick, we thank God everyday that this situation is not as worse as it could be, and we accept the blessings with open arms every day. Thank you again.

Update 3/7/18

Hello everyone!

Nick had a very good day yesterday. They had put him into a "deeper" coma a few days ago to allow his brain swelling to go down even more. Yesterday his swelling was very low, a good sign! Today they began weening him off of the coma medicine and had him completely off of it by noon! We have seen his body twitching and reacting to touch, but he may not be fully awake yet because it will take his body about a week or two to fully metabolize the medication out of his system.

We still do not know how much damage his brain has, because the doctors still need to perform an MRI and can only do this when his head can handle laying completely flat. We are remaining incredibly hopeful.

Please everyone keep praying for his body and mind to heal fully, and keep the good days coming!! We appreciate everyone for coming out last Saturday to Dutch Bros! It was an amazing turnout, it is beautiful to see all the wonderful people that care for Nicky!! Thank you all so very much!!

Update (3/1/18)

Hello everyone,

Thank you all for all the support and your help raising awareness for Nick. He has had quite a few up and down days, but we are. still keeping strong. Yesterday, his pressures were quite high in his head, forcing the doctors to induce Nick into a deeper coma. This will (hopefully) only be for the next 48 hours, but the doctors need his brain to repair itself. Too much pressure can ultimately lead to brain damage, which is not what we want. His lungs have been quite stiff, but the doctors hope they will repair itself. There is a small hole in his right lung, and the found a blood clot in that lung as well. We are praying for better days to come.

On a better note, Dutch Bros is hosting a fundraiser for Nick this Saturday, March 3rd. The fundraiser will be at the Manzanita Avenue location (4625 Manzanita Avenue), but all Sacramento locations will have donation buckets for him. We are very thankful for the kindness Dutch Bros has bestowed upon us during this time.

My family and I were also on Fox 40 news last night at 10:00 pm to discuss Nick's condition. I will post both the Dutch Bros link and the Fox 40 link below.

We want to thank you all again for the prayers and well wishes. The doctors say we need to take it day by day, and to be prepared for a long road to recovery. As many of you know, Nick is a very strong and determined boy, and I believe he will be well soon enough.

Thank you again,
Michaela Webb
