Please note - I am extremely sleep deprived. My apologies in advance for blogging under the influence of Ambein,
a co-worker's 24 year old daughter had a zip line accident last week. She ended up in the ER, It took 22 stitches to close the wound in her calf. She was sent home and told to take OTC pain meds. A few days later, the extreme pain sent her back to the ER. She was checked, given a script for Darvocet and sent home. Her parents wanted her to come home, but she didn't want to leave school so close to the end of semester. A college friend called her parents to let them know something wasn't right. They took her to the ER again. She was given antibiotics and sent home. The pain and fever were not improving, so her parents took her to the ER.
she has a flesh eating virus. They've had to remove her leg, some of her fingers, and an area of her abdomen. She coded 3 times during the amputation surgeries. She's been in a coma, but is starting to open her eyes a bit and recognize her family. She is now at a burn and wound care specialty facility.
her family is asking for prayers and for blood donations. They are setting up a blood drive in the area where she is, but would like for anybody who feels moved to donate in their own area. At the Burn Unit they have seen so many people in desperate need.
please remember Aimee, her family, and the doctors in your prayers.
THANK YOU my wonderful
