Caring for Cohen

Raised by 85 people in 2 months
This sweet little one is my brother’s son. He was recently life flighted from Sioux City, Iowa to Omaha, Nebraska.He is at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

He had a 102-105 fever for a few days. He was admitted to Unity Point in Sioux City for dehydration. On his second day there he suffered a seizure and underwent a CT scan. Blood was found around his brain and he was transferred to Omaha for specialty care that wasn’t available in Sioux City.

Currently he is being treated for bacterial meningitis. But doctors are still trying to pinpoint the cause of bleeding in his brain.

All donations will go toward the extra daily expenses, any bills not covered by insurance, and their normal monthly costs of living from missing work (not covered by sick or vacation time).

The amount chosen is with the idea that Cohen will have a full recovery and hopefully be home soon.

Any amount you give will help because they have 3 other children as well.

Thank you so much for prayers and cash support for my brother and his family

Sarah and Cohen are in Omaha at the Rainbow House. We’re thankful that they have a place to stay that is close to the hospital there. Trips to the ER in Sioux City just meant being transferred back to Omaha, now Cohen has the care he needs just blocks away.

He is suffering from silent seizures and his medication has been adjusted to help prevent those from occurring. However, some of his Meds seem to upset his stomach and right now he’s having trouble staying hydrated and keeping food down. Please continue to pray for our sweet little boy!

Alan is back to work in Sioux City to keep up on the bills, but because Sarah is not able to go back to work we’re asking for just a little more help.

So Cohen’s PICC line has to be replaced. It broke. Sounds like Sarah will be staying in Omaha for the remainder of his treatment (another three weeks).

Cohen is back at home now. We got home late last night. He has a 24 hour IV bag to carry with him, but that didn’t stop him from moving around. He dug right in to Santa’s gifts and played late into the evening. He even stood by himself in the middle of the floor! He’s been walking for months now, but that was a big deal for us because he hasn’t been using his right side. Over the past few days we’ve seen him move his arm and leg more and more.

He still has 5 more weeks of 24 hour IV meds and regular blood tests, A handful of follow up appointments, and Physical Therapy.

This child is bouncing back quicker than we imagined he would. He’s back to himself, and we are so happy and thankful for that!
Thank you all! We love you.
Praise God!

Cohen’s post op CT looks good. “Better than expected” according to our neurosurgeon. Cohen has a small tube to drain any additional fluid for a few days. We are in the ICU for tonight but expect to move back up to the general pediatric unit in a day or two.

Thank for for all the continued prayers!
