Your donation of $5 on April 5th will go a long way in helping Taylor and Nathan with out of pocket medical needs, medical related travel and living expenses.
Three days after Taylor's surgery of Marxh 28th, we received a call that her cultures taken during surgery had begun to once again grow one of the rare bacteria that was found in cultures from her surgery last year in June.
For 3 years, Taylor's original craniotomy incision has failed to heal and remain closes. This incision is from her Microvascular Decompression surgery that was necessary to attempt to give her relief from the daily pain she suffers from Trigeminal Neuralgia.
These bacterias/infection are extremely difficult to treat, especially if hardware is involved. Last weeks surgery was to remove two screws that were left behind from her last surgery on June 15th 2018.
We are praying hard that now that there is no hardware remaining, the six weeks of antibiotic therapy via Infusion services will be successful in ridding her body of the infection and her incision will finally heal and stay healed!
Taylor had a PICC line put in yesterday and had her first dose of Infusion. Like last Summer this continues for the next 6 weeks.
We are so grateful for all of our family and friends, as well as new friendships we have made through other social media platforms. All of who have continued to pray and send healing thoughts for Taylor.
If you are able to donate $5 tomorrow on April 5th, THANK YOU!!! If you are not, we equally appreciate you sharing Taylor's GoFundMe campaign, leave a comment for her, reach out through other platforms to let us know you are praying and thinking of her, etc!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the love you show our girl!
This morning we began getting calls that once again one of the rare bacteria that was found upon her surgery in June where they explanted the mesh from her original craniotomy/mvd surgery...has already begun growing on majority of the cultures. They will continue to update us on readings over the next week. However, they are moving forward now with aggressively treating her for Osteomyelitis (Bone infection). This will require several weeks of Antibiotic Therapy via Infusion.
Thank you to all who continue to keep Tay, her husband Nathan and our family in your thoughts and prayers. We are also grateful to anyone who is able to donate and equally grateful to friends and family who are willing to share her story and campaign info. You can follow me on Instagram for additional updates @SagePrairie
Our dear friend Dave @onesnevertooold on Instagram is hosting a special $5 dollars on April 5th for Tay. You can donate here on Tay's Gofundme page now or on April 5th!
Thank you EVERYONE!!!!
Taylor will be undergoing a third revision on her original craniotomy tomorrow March 28th.
They will be removing damaged bone and will carefully attempt to clean up that area.
Following surgery she will be having several weeks of aggressive antibiotic therapy in hope of ridding her completely of Osteomyelitis (bone infection in her skull) and allow her to heal fully.
She will be off of work for quite a while. Any donations are so appreciated, as is sharing her GoFundMe page and her story.
We are forever grateful for ALL OF THE PRAYERS AND POSITIVE THOUGHTS directed at her!!!
We could not get through each leg of this journey without them!
More coming soon!
We will post updates here, we will post more frequent updates @ SagePrairie on Instagram.
Running around today scrambling to repack and regroup...on very little sleep.
A quick (but sincere!) THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who donated and continues to donate to help Tay and Nathan with their expenses.
Please continue to keep Tay and put family in your thoughts and prayers.
AND please continue to share Tay's campaign information, leave comments for her, private message me, etc.
We LOVE seeing peoples #tealfortay pics! So keep posting them throughout the month!
Just found your page and although I can't afford to donate, I'm sending you lots of healing and love. I don't know you but I have suffered from trigeminal neuralgia also. However not on the scale you have. I know most people don't understand and they may think you're crazy. It took years for anyone to believe me that the pain is unbearable. It feels horrible to have an "invisible illness". I sincerely hope you are on your way to relief. Hugs from a stranger. ❤️
Dear Taylor, I hope that your surgery went well today; and I hope that you will be feeling better soon. I also hope and pray that healing and curing is most prominent for you! I met your mom online today. You are Very Strong! Hugs sent from MD to you, Lynn
