The Greenes need our help
On July 20th, Kevin & Ibby's 13-year-old son, Lockwood, woke up with a low-grade fever. Over the course of the next couple of weeks, the fever didn't abate and Lockwood's health deteriorated significantly. After being admitted to the hospital in Greensboro, Lockwood's vitals went south quickly and he alternated between skyrocketing blood pressure to a near cardiac arrest event.
After he was temporarily stabilized in Greensboro, a decision was made to rapidly transport Lockwood to Duke's Pediatric ICU in Durham, NC for specialized treatment. Admitted to the Duke Medical Center Pediatric ICU in early August, Lockwood was finally diagnosed with atypical Kawasaki disease. This virus-based disease is vicious as it attacks the coronary system with devastating short & long-term consequences.
Lockwood is by no means out of the woods yet and will be at Duke for a minimum of two more weeks if not carrying through the month of September. The Greene family is facing a long road to recovery including a new normal facing their family of five.
Any help is welcome and truly appreciated.
