Update #3

Thank you to everyone who has supported and prayed for Alexa.

She is currently in the ICU at St. Petersburg. She has had several setbacks and is fighting each day as doctors try to figure out how they can help her. There is a suspected infection which, if confirmed, would lead her to being transferred to Emory (if they will accept her).

Please continue to pray for Alexa.

More Info

Please help Alexa’s family during this time. She is a wife, daughter, granddaughter, and mom of two young boys recovers from a sudden cardiac arrest. Alexa and her family were visiting her in-laws for Thanksgiving when she collapsed. Fortunately, her husband Patrick began CPR until EMTs arrived with a LUCAS CPR machine. Alexa has been in intensive care since 11/21/23 with heart, lung, liver, and brain injuries. Alexa is diagnosed with Long QT Syndrome which is a rare heart condition and will require a defibrillator installed in her chest. 

 Alexa has a long recovery ahead of her, but she is strong and determined. At first the doctors prepared for the worst because her brain was without oxygen. Through the power of prayer, Alexa has not only survived but is beginning to talk.

This is Alexa’s 2nd miracle of coming back to life. Eleven years ago, she survived a traumatic brain injury and broken neck from a car accident - while 12 weeks pregnant with their oldest son! When Alexa learned to talk again, she told us "my heart was carried on the wings of an angel, I saw God's white warm light and I wasn't afraid ".

 Alexa’s family faces insurmountable medical expenses, including hopefully rehabilitation from her brain injury at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta. In addition, their two-income family will become one-income for the foreseeable future.

 Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Update #2

Alexa remains stable at the LTAC (Long term acute care) facility in South Florida. There has been a standstill on her improvement until she can be better assessed by a gallbladder specialist, who is not able to help until late January. In the meantime, she continues her fight while family attempts to get Alexa accepted into a facility in Georgia. The transport for this will cost well over $4000 alone. It is anticipated that she will remain hospitalized for months to come.

Update #1

Alexa is in a progressive critical care unit and has some setbacks with her progress. After some procedures and times she seems to be back to healing. Alexa has a team of 7 different doctors who are taking great care of her. She is able to talk to family but gets very tired easily. We continue to pray for her healing as we have to patiently wait to see what her body will allow the doctors to do. Thank you again to everyone who as supported her along the way.
