Our friend Nikki was on her honeymoon in Hawaii following her dream beach wedding this past week. On Wednesday September 12th just a few days after her wedding ceremony she was boogie boarding in the ocean with her new husband and friends when a wave caught her and slammed her to the ground breaking her neck in 2 places and leaving her paralyzed. She was care flighted from Maui to Honalulu for surgery. Nikki is a mom to two beautiful children and a new stepmom to one.  Her fairytale wedding trip has turned into a horrible nightmare for herself, her new husband, their children and families. The medical bills are growing each day and will be unimaginabley extensive very quickly.  She lives in Prosper and I’m sure at some point arrangements to get her back to Texas will have to be made.  Her husband and family have been so hesitant in going public and accepting help but the realization of the long road ahead is setting in and they need our help!! We have created this page to help take some of the financial burden off of them while they focus on Nikki’s recovery. Any amount will help and if you can’t donate please spread her story through sharing this link on social media. Thanks in advance for any financial assistance you can provide.
If you would like to follow Nikki’s story a Facebook page has been set up to do so.

As of yesterday Nikki is officially back in Texas!!!! She went straight from the airport to the rehab facility she will be staying at until released to go home. She is making tremendous progresss and is showing just how strong and brave she is. We are all so proud of her and the fight she is showing in and out every single day. She still has a long road ahead working towards reclaiming her life and as this fund continues to grow it will help take the financial strain off of her and her family so she can focus solely on her recovery.

Thanks to everyone that is praying and helping Nikki through this process. Days like this when she is crying and begging to get home is the hardest.

Biggest scare for me since the accident and surgery. She just passed out in my arms while going to bedside toilet. I got her down in bed saftly. She woke up and threw up. Scared the crap out of me. :( She sat down and said i want to go back now. I dont feel good. Started heading back and then passed out....... So here is what we think after tests now. Her blood pressure is low when she awakes normally. Probably from pain meds. We need to let her wake up some more but she wanted to pee. When you situp from this type injury you normally drop a little. Well it was already low. When she stood she was weaker than normal but she told me she was fine. My gut said sit her back down. Next time she is sitting if i think she isnt ready. Made it to chair and you know the rest. Checked heart with ekg and talked with doc. She went in bed pan and is sleeping now. :( no more sleep for me. Wide awake. It was because low blood pressure and Orthostatic hypotension.

Nikki is still in the hospital in Hawaii and has made some progress in the fact that she has some movement in her hands and the doctors even sat her up with assistance yesterday. She is such a fighter and we are so proud of her determination. She is still so far away from her children and a private plane home for her to be surrounded by family and friends has been quoted around $70,000. This does not even include medical bills, therapy and her long road to recovery. Every dollar donated counts!! If you would like to follow her story as well she has a Facebook page set up with updates on her progress.
