We stayed at Atlanta medical center for 2 months and then CHOA for 2 months and was sent home. Angel was in Vegetative state when she came home. Everything in our lives had to change , we had a difficult time getting services and help for Angel. We have had to fight for what services and equipment Angel has had. At 18 months out Angel is now in a minimally conscious state, she has little purposeful movement , cannot talk, walk or take food by mouth. But she has made substantial improvements especially over the last 6 weeks.
At this point in Angel's journey the doctors and clinics have done everything they can do for Angel which has left us ,as her family to start thinking outside the box and look for alternative treatments for her. We have started PEMF treatments , looked into hyperbaric chamber , and am meeting with the doctors at Innovabrain to explore alternative treatments for our Angel. These treatments are not covered by insurance and are very expensive . But these are things that we have seen work and that we feel are worth trying for Angel. We have went as far as we can medically , we have done everything and more that they have told us to do . We owe it to Angel to go above and beyond to help her. 
Angel is a bright , beautiful, amazing, kind loving girl. She never has given us a moment of grief. She was an amazing gymnast , a cheerleader for her highschool. She was studying to be a nurse and wanted to work with new babies. She was a good friend, daughter, student  and she will be all these things again.
Please help us in getting her any and every help we can possibly find.

Hi wanted to take a minute and post an update on Angel. Im sorry that I have not updated in awhile but have been very busy working with Angel. Thanks to friends , family , and perfect strangers we have been able to pay for ten treatments for Angel gofundme account reached close to $5000, many people brought by donations, I sold furniture , and Billy and I paid for 3 treatments ourselves. We have used 8 of our 10 treatments and WOW!, the difference in Angel is amazing !She is more attentive and aware of her surroundings, she stays awake longer , she looks more "normal', she has more purposeful movement , she is taking some solid food again, holding eye contact and not attending so much to the right. I am able to move her better she is holding more of her weight so her transfers have become MUCH easier. She is answering more questions with a thumbs up response with a 90% accuracy. But more than all of this I have received more of an understanding of brain injury and a more realistic outlook . It is easy to get discouraged in this situation but I have regained a lot of hope and an understanding that I must be patient she can heal it is just going to take a great deal of time, patience, and an understanding that there is no 'easy' fix. I miss Angel , I want her back and Im going to do everything I can to get her back. Please continue to share our story , to donate , to pray , and to visit <3

UPDATE : wanted to take a minute to give an update on Angel , I apologize if I have not returned your messages but we have been busy and exhausted. So last week we did 3 treatment days at INNOVABRAIN. Angel did fantastic! Dr Patterson and Dr Duffy handle her with sure care and patience. They have been focusing on eye gaze and tracking to help her in communication. They explained to me that her eye sight has not been the greatest and its hard for her to focus and follow commands when she feels as though the room is always spinning. They have taught us how to do these exercises at home and we are seeing great results! She is able to follow and track pictures from left to right . Her body has noticeably started to relax more and she has more expression in her face. She seems more alert and confused by her state. These are all good signs. We could not be happier with what we are seeing and the personalized care we are receiving. I cannot thank you enough to all who have donated to the GoFUNDMe, dropped or mailed donations, or bought furniture. We have to date payed for 7 days of treatment. I would love to get it to 10!! please keep sharing and praying for Angel
