Jamie Update: 12/10/2015
She still needs our HELP! Unfortunately, Jamie was admitted into the hospital this last weekend after her tibia bone fractured completely, just walking. Her bone broke where the pin ended - that pin was inserted in her second surgery in October. Monday she had a third surgery on the same knee/leg, and now has plates and screws added to hold it all together. She did well in surgery, and has been moved to a rehab hospital for a few weeks to get her to the point where she can get up and down her stairs to her apartment without putting her self at risk of falling etc. My girl just can't catch a break!! (No pun intended!!) She will be out of work for a few more months now, on long term disability, and needs our help to keep food on the table! Please do what you can and show your support!
Thank you!! Thank You!! Thank You!! JoAnne
Jamie Update: 10/7/2015
So, an already difficult time is just getting more and more challenging for my dear friend Jamie. Her knee has not healed and she had a second surgery on Monday and is still in the hospital. To top it off her son in high school was in a car accident this morning and is OK, but in the ER of the same hospital getting his arm x-rayed. Unfortunately, the truck he worked so hard for and just bought a few weeks ago is now totaled... another financial loss. Jamie faces 3 - 4 more months of recovery and re-hab so no work... and long term disability just isn't enough. Please do what you can to help them by donating to the fund... and please send a prayer that their luck will turn around and both of them will heal fast!!!
We love ya girl.. hang in there!
We all love Jamie! Most of us are aware that she was walking her dog on May 5 and a large dog charged them, attacked her Bombs baby and while Jamie tried to fight off the dog, it knocked her down and she hit the groud hard. Her dog was fine, but Jamie knew immediately that something really really bad happened to her knew. Horrible PAIN!!! She could barely walk. Jamie ended up in the emergency room that day. A week later at an Orthopedic surgeon, 4 weeks later having an MRI and in week 5, surgery on June 15.
Well, Jamie is a server at a super busy and fun Irish pub at Universal theme park in Orlando, and the bulk of her income comes from tips. She has now been off work for 5 weeks, and has at least 4 to 6 more weeks of physical therapy before she can return to work.
Thankfully she has medical insurance to cover most of the medical expenses, but this huge decrease in her income has made it very challenging to cover her living expenses. You all know her as a loving and extremely hard working single mother who would do anything for her son or a friend... she has been there for us countless times - helping a sick friend or grieving family, volunteering for a good cause, lending emotional support with her great advice and kick ass sense of humor, and planning the best parties/reunions that bring us together to share love and good times.
We can always count on her, now let her know she can count on us. Let's raise enough money so that she can relax and re-cooperate for as long as it takes to truly heal, without worrying about finances. Any amount will help her, even if it's the amount you would spend on a bottle or glass of wine (you know who you are... lol).
We love this girl dearly so let's show her the love! Thank you for anything you can spare! :-)
