On November 25, 2017 Chloe complained of a sore throat,
nothing abnormal for a 34 year old mother of 5 1/2 and 4 year old kids.
The weekend progressed as did her "cold" until it got to the point only 4
days later that her and her husband, John decided to take her to the
Emergency Room. Things escalated quickly and before the day was over
Chloe was in the ICU fighting for her life in septic shock. She was
put on dialysis, a respirator and a heart/lung bypass machine to keep
her alive. Things looked bleak and she is still not out of the woods. In
order to contain the infection doctors were forced to remove both of
her legs below the knee and part of her right arm. The doctors are still
not sure what brought on this infection in a normally healthy young
woman. Chloe is still in the ICU and still fighting in the hopes that
her skin will heal and nothing else needs to be removed.
Shocked? I was as well.
husband has the support of two great families but as a nurse himself is
and will be in need of financial help to pay the medical bills,
refurbish the house to make it handicap accessible, and care for their
two young kids. Their life has been turned upside down and the last
thing they need are financial worries.
These are two truly wonderful
people who been given a crappy hand yet somehow they are pushing through
this. Christmas and new year is here and these kids will always remember it as
the Christmas that mommy got sick.
Please help my friends Chloe and John and their kids!
