Hello, my name is Amy. I am here just asking for help to pay for my son’s surgery that he needs. He is scheduled to have his elbow repaired Friday, Apr 14. He was in a dirt bike accident, cut off by another rider, and ended up with a very significant broken arm. The x-ray picture I included says it all. Basically, his elbow is no longer attached to the end of his bone.  We are not broke, we work, pay our bills, have insurance, do all the things we are supposed to do, but find ourselves with this horrendous bill. We will need 1/3 on Friday before they will perform the surgery That I will be putting on credit cards. I work 70+ hours a week to be able to have a little fun, in addition to having what we need to survive. This is just unfathomable to me. I guess we have been blessed this far because we didn’t know that medical situations can be so devastating. I will update you after surgery so you can follow his progress. I hate asking for help, but I am unsure what else I can do. Having a 7 thousand dollar unpaid bill hanging over my head just makes me feel deflated. I really can’t explain it. I really appreciate you taking the time to read my request. If you have a few bucks you feel like giving to help out, it will be much appreciated!


Well we have to arrive at 0930 tomorrow.  I can tell Jeremy is anxious.  Funny part is what he’s most worried about is being naked under the hospital gown. He keeps asking questions and has been super quiet this evening.  I feel so bad for him. I am just hoping and praying he has an easy recovery and isn’t in a lot of pain during the healing process.  I feel….sad, scared, mad. The weirdest feeling is that he’s going to be cut into. I am a nurse. I know what needs to be done, but I just wish he didnt have to have this surgery.  I don’t want him to have a scar. I want him to be a happy healthy 16yo able to drive and ride his bike and do all the things he loves. My mind keeps going back to that day….why did I encourage him to go, what if I had been there instead of him going with just his dad. I just want to remind time and change it. The nurse asked me al these questions today. Questions I couldnt answer. Hes never sick, has never been hurt before.  I dont know if he’ll have a reaction to the anesthesia,  I dont know of he’ll tolerate the medications. I dont know how he’ll react to getting an IV. Things I never even thought about before. This also brings me to how very blessed we are. We have 2 healthy children.  There’s a song that keeps popping into my head.  I cant remember anything but the 1st line. “Into every life a little rain must fall “. I dont even know where it came from…but it made me realize that this is just our little bit of rain. It’s not a hurricane. We will get through this. I just cant wait to be on the other side. I will be praying all night. Hugging my baby as much as I can. In sure theres a few days coming that are going to be tough, but it’s just a season and things will get better. This accident could have been so much worse.  Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers these next few days. Thank you so much


We had surgery Friday.  It went well per the Dr. He was in a lot of pain right out of surgery,  but has only taken 1 advil since he’s been home. He says the pain in manageable.  I feel so bad for all he’s missing. His sports, his shop class, driving. We go back in 2 weeks for the 1st check after surgery.  I’m praying everything goes wel for him and he can start getting back to normal after that appointment.  Not sure what therapy back to normal will be, but we’ll just stick with it and work real hard to strengthen that arm. Please check back for an update.
