Rae'ana our hometown miracle :)
*****PLEASE SEE TODAY'S NEWEST VIDEO OF RAE'ANA DOING HER PT ON BALLARD AMBULANCE FACEBOOK PAGE****IT'S AMAZING!!!
Hi to all of you keeping up with Rae'Ana, this is Penny a now, close friend of the Rae'Ana and her mom Becca.
For those of you who don't know or if I had not mentions it all funds from the GoFundMe Campaign will be sent directly to a special account at Gesa Credit Union-
Looking forward and according to the awesome progress that Rae'Ana has been making, we (cautiously) anticipate that in a matter of weeks (6-8 or so) Rae'Ana could be an out patient Physical Therapy patient.
In order for this to happen they will need to have transportation. The funds that all of you have been contributing are going to First: find a form of safe reliable transportation for this family to be able to take Rae'Ana to and from her necessary doctor appointments. If anyone has a very safe and reliable minivan type of vehicle, we are looking to procure. Second: we are hoping to assist Rae'Ana, Brother, New Baby Girl, and Mom into a sustainable living environment here in Wenatchee. Of course all this will be very closely monitored with much more updates as that time nears.
None of the above would be at all possible without the generous donations being made to Rae'Ana and (mom) Becca Shelton and family by you. Your thoughts, Prayers, and financial support are nothing this family ever expected to be receiving and their hearts are overwhelmed with the love they feel from the online Supporters to ALL of the local community of Wenatchee.
Additionally, for all of you who have been asking about our momma to be...Becca is expecting a precious baby sister for Rae'Ana and La'Darius. The good Lord is providing this family with a mega share of Blessings. From Rae'Anas recovery to another sweet little baby girl. La'Darius is going to have his work cut out for him being big brother to these little girls ;) With all that is going on in the Momma's life there has been a strong request from the community to do an Facebook type event for a BABY SHOWER for....Drum Roll please Elousia Rae'Lynn Shelton. Yes you heard it here....new baby name. If you have any NEW-born clothes, items, etc. (all is needed). Please keep it in mind for the upcoming SOON information to come about the Baby Shower.
PER THE RULES OF THE GOFUNDME PAGE IN MUST INFORM YOU THE COMMUNITY OF THE FOLLOWING:
I Penny McDonald am withdrawing funds to this account personally, and transferring the funds to Becca outside of GoFundMe and I am / will provide all funds to her via check/ wire/ or cash as is requested by Becca.
We went back to Seattle for her final follow up appointments Friday. Rae'Ana was so excited to see the hospital again. And now that daddy is home she was able to share going back with him as well. She was like a little tour guide. One appointment was her echo to see if her blood clots are appropriate for discontinuation of her lovenox shots. I have been treating these clots 2 times a day since discharge. Her echo showed that her clots r stabilized. Then the 2nd appointment was to see if we need to continue treating the clots. Or if we stop the treatment. So this next week Friday will be her final 2 shots, Saturday will b the first time she isn't woke up to one. This is a big moment for the both of us. She's been such a trooper. we can say she is 100 back to herself. And she will no longer have follow ups. Thank you everyone that has been living us through this one way or another. Xoxo
Update on Rae'ana. After months of being in the hospital Rae'ana is out of the hospital and back in the valley. As you can imagine a huge weight has been lifted off of Becca's shoulders and they are excited to get back and get things headed back to normal. On Saturday they came to town and headed right to Town Toyota to sign the papers on the van that they were able to purchase with some of the funds that all of you gave and also the generosity of the folks down at Town Toyota. For us it was such a joy to see the kids acting like kids, playing hide and seek in the dealership, going for the candy out of the Easter basket that was dropped off for them, crawling all over their new/used vehicle and squabbling back and forth like any brother and sister would. Just good to see normal. Today they are out looking for housing for the family. We also got a surprise visit down at the office and Mike Battis who was one of our crew that worked on her that day back in February got to see her for the first time since then. Big smiles all around. Anyway, thanks again to all of you that prayed, gave and encouraged this family.
Guess who's a free bird?!! She wanted two things when she got out... To swing and McDonald's. Check... And check! She discharged yesterday at 2. We walked "home" and went straight to the back yard.
