Hailey Jo's Medical Journey
On 8/21/19 Hailey Jo woke up and got dressed with her mommy for daycare, just like any other day of the week. Little did they know, today was going to be unimaginably different than any other day. When Hailey Jo was playing inside at daycare, she experienced a rare pediatric stroke and was sent directly to Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock via emergency air flight. She experienced significant bleeding in her brain which caused inflammation and swelling. It caused her to rely on a breathing tube and chemical sedation for several days. The pressure on her brain eventually had to be relieved by undergoing surgical procedures.
Family, friends, friends-of-friends, and Hailey Jo's church family prayed together for God's healing hand to touch her in the midst of her struggle for life...and He answer our faithful prayers.
On 8/27/19, Hailey Jo was stable enough to have the breathing tube removed and begin to taper off meds. Two days later, she opened her eyes to see her mommy and daddy by her said, and she spoke her first words, "love you". Sweet Hailey Jo continued to fight for her life, while having to deal with uncomfortable tubes, pains, and several neurological tests and scans. She was able to move to the rehabilitation floor at the hospital to begin the rehab process, relearning early primary skills (walking, talking, etc) again as there was some neurological damage from the stroke.
On 9/27/19, Hailey Jo was discharged from the hospital and was able to return home with her mommy and daddy. Although she was stable enough to leave the hospital, she has a long road ahead to make a full recovery with multiple follow-up rehabilitation visits that insurance does not always cover.
Please consider making a contribution to Hailey Jo that will go toward her on-going rehab visits and help her make a full recovery. Please share Hailey Jo's story and how to donate with your family and friends!
