Was just wondering if your organization would like to make a donation to my wife’s benefit silent auction? Long story short....after three hospital visits and 3.5 weeks with pains in her toes and cold skin she was sent home with nothing wrong! Fast forward to a week later I woke up for work and my wife didn’t like right. I touched her leg and it was cold to the touch. I called 911 and the ambulance took her back to the same hospital. They couldn’t find a pulse in her foot so they life flighted her 60 miles away to a new hospital! Still they had no idea what was wrong! Just suspected CRPS which is basically a nerve disorder making low level pain seem like the worst pain ever! Upon arrival at the new hospital they immediately find a blood clot in my wife’s aorta then a massive clot from her pelvis to her toes which nobody else had seen!! We spent Christmas and New Years in that hospital and on 12/28 she lost her leg from mid thigh down!! My wife is only 28 years old and this has been a very hard time for us both! After 4 weeks in the hospital she is finally back home! I’ve had to spend 1000s and 1000s of dollars modifying my home, paying for a wheel chair ramp and buying medical equipment! I am the only one working and haven’t been able to work a full week in over 2 months because she can’t be home alone! I missed 3 full weeks of work because of COVID restrictions at the hospital. I was the only one allowed with my wife through her whole hospital stay and refused to leave her alone! I am reaching out to everyone I can possibly think of to get donations for the benefit my cousin is throwing for us! We could definitely use all the help we can get! Thank you so much for your time and consideration! Sincerely, Chad M. Cosby
