Update #4

over 1 year ago

Sorry it’s been a bit since the last update. There have been many tests run and slow progress in the right direction. As of now my Uncle is back at ORMC with a trache in place and a feeding tube to the stomach. He is making slow progress and we see some improvement week by week. He is able to communicate by nodding his head, mouthing words and smiling. This will be a long battle over the next months to a year since there is a lot of therapy needed to help him recover. We appreciate your support, thoughts, prayers and contributions thus far.

More Info

Hi everyone my name is Ariel Tipton and I am starting this fundraiser on behalf of my Uncle, Jerry Berger. On Tuesday, November 27th my Uncle was involved in a house fire that has currently left him in critical condition. He was brought to Orlando Regional Medical Center and spent two and a half weeks there before being transferred to a Long Term Acute Care hospital and continues on a ventilator.  He's currently still heavily sedated and is on other medications to help control his blood pressure. We are still unsure of the future for my Uncle but we have hopes that a full recovery is possible. This Fundly page has been set up to keep everyone informed of changes, improvements and setbacks. Through this Fundly page we hope to raise funds to help my Uncle with his current medical bills, possible long-term care and to replace everything he lost in the fire. We appreciate any contribution, kind words, thoughts, prayers and sharing of this Fundly page.

Update #3

Update: My Uncle still remains in very critical condition and the outcome is still unknown. He has had some unfortunate set backs over the last week and this will be a long-term battle, but he is strong. On top of losing all of his personal belongings, the medical bills are adding up and my family is needing to obtain guardianship to handle all of his personal information and issues moving forward. Any help is greatly appreciated by my family!

Update #2

My Uncle has been taken off the sedative and they are hoping he will slowly wake up. If he wakes and does not fight the ventilator, then they can better predict the next steps in his recovery process. We are still looking at many more weeks of care and prayers are much appreciated! I will continue to update weekly unless we have major changes.
