Operation Taylor

$4,308 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 103 people in 49 months
We have set up this account for our daughter Taylor, who early in 2015, was diagnosed with a rare and horribly painful disease known as Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) , as well as a found unruptured cerebral aneurysm. Since November of 2015, Taylor has undergone a craniotomy (Microvascular Decompression), a subsequent revision of the initial craniotomy, a second revision and removal of hardware/material, as well as numerous endovascular surgical procedures to address her brain aneurysm. Since Taylor's initial craniotomy, her incision has failed to fully heal. On June 8th, 2018, Taylor's hardware was removed, as It was believed that her body was rejecting the material. What they discovered was Taylor was suffering from Osteomtelitis (bone infection in her skull), due to two different rare bacteria. Here we are March 2019 and her incision has once again come back open. She is having another surgery to attempt to remove damaged bone, followed by aggressive antibiotic therapy in hope that her incision will fully heal and stay healed. ***Her next neurosurgery will be March 28th*** Thank you to EVERYONE who has donated, continues to donate!!! To everyone who continues to pray, send positive and healing thoughts and continue to be a support through Taylor's journey, we appreciate you so very much and could not do this without you! All of the funds raised continue to go directly towards Taylor's living expenses (post surgeries and treatment), out of pocket medical expenses and travel.

$5 on the 5th of April 2019

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!

Taylor's surgery went well on Thursday. The Surgical team was able to retrieve everything necessary and sent everything off to Pathology. Taylor's post surgical recovery was rough, but after several hours she was able to be transferred to a room. We were happy to get her home where she is resting and receiving amazing 'pet therapy' from her rescued kitties!
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!!!!

Apologies for the brief update;

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!

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. ❤️

I don't know you personally, but I follow you on IG. Your story touches my heart. My husband has had 17 heart procedures the last 4 yrs. Its hard with a husband, but I can't imagine with a child. And I know first hand how expensive all of these procedures are. Sending Prayers.
