Help Donna Get home
It all started Labor Day weekend Friday, Aug. the 31st 2012. Donna was at the Apple festival in North Carolina with her Husband, Granddaughter, Grandson in-law, and two great grandkids who were visiting, when her left hand started to shake. She never said much and no one noticed any change in her since she sometimes shakes a little. Saturday Donna woke up with a slight cold but still went out to lunch with her granddaughter Jackie and great granddaughter Gianna. They spent the day together having fun shopping, but nothing was wrong other then a light cold we thought. Sunday Donna woke up a little sicker due to the cold as we assumed and later in the day Donna said her left arm was numb and weak. Donna said "IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll go to the doctors on Tuesday since there closed Monday for the holiday". Monday morning came and Jackie and her family went on home. Tuesday Donna went to the doctors and they said "we think you had a stroke", go for a MRI. The MRI confirmed that Donna did have a stroke which most likely happened on that past Friday. Donna and Jimmy (Husband) Said "they would be packing up and come home to Ft. Lauderdale," so she could start therapy on her arm. Well it all went bad that Wednesday when Donna stated she was having trouble seeing, and walking. Jimmy took Donna to the doctors for her blood work and told the nurse what was going on. They took Donna by ambulance to the Asheville hospital in North Carolina. In the ER Donna was talking and acting okay. Donna went back to do some testÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s and a doctor came out to inform Jimmy that his wife had another stroke. Donna had pretty much lost all vision and couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t talk. Donna was put in ICU due to the strokes, and they found a blood clot. After three days in ICU Donna was moved to Neuroscience. The blood clot went away after receiving Heparin. Donna is still unable to see and doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know or understand whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going on. There is some brain damage and speech problems, doctors unsure how bad and if Donna's vision will ever come back. Donna will soon start rehabilitation, which can take six month or more. We are in need transport Donna home in a medical R.V to Ft. Lauderdale where the family lives. Plus Jimmy (82years old) cannot take care of Donna by himself. The insurance will not cover a medical R.V to transport Donna home, and this is the only way to transport. So we ask that if you can donate to this wonderful Grandmother, Mother, Sister and wife of 60years to get Donna home where she belong's, so that Donna's family can help her get well. We all are very grateful for all donations and support, thank you and God Bless.
