If 2020 wasn't already hard enough Michael was diagnosed with anaplasmosis (a tick disease) November 22nd 2020. He has been struggling in the hospital and needs our help.
I have some great news to share: Mike got to come home from the hospital today! He is on the road to recovery but his kidneys are still putting up quite the fight. He has some OT/PT to complete to build up some strength before he can head back to work. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
I just wanted to thank everyone for all the amazing support that you have given Mike and the family this far!!
Monday update on Michael from Melissa:
"He is a little more alert, but super crabby (those poor nurses) he's still getting some assistance with the nasal oxygen. Being intubated he got Pneumonia so they are treating him with antibiotics for that. His kidneys are still not doing good, he's got 2 numbers that are way to high and need to come down or they'll need to take other steps.
Keep up those prayers, good vibes and healing energy! Thank you for all the love and support... I miss him!"
He's slowly recovering but he still has quite a way to go before he can come home. The bills are still growing so any support, if you are able, is greatly appreciated. Just a reminder that Fundly takes a small percentage of every donation so if you are looking for a fee free option you can Venmo @AlexaReuss or Cashapp $AlexaReuss with "Miracles for Mike" to donate as well!
The technical issues have been fixed and the donate button is back up and running! Please let me know if any other issues occur.
Update on Mike from Melissa on Saturday: I'm so happy right now!!!!! They removed the breathing tube today! He's more alert, said a few words and I got an "I Love You" from him when we got off the video!!! He has other numbers that need to go down before he is ok to come home, but this is huge today!!!!
I love to see all of the support that Mike and the family has been receiving. We have run into a technical issue with Fundly and are working to get the donation function back up and running. In the meantime you can donate (with no fees!) to @AlexaReuss on Venmo or $AlexaReuss on Cash App. I will let you know when Fundly has fixed this, hopefully very soon!
