Welcome It's Fundraiser Time!!!! Who's In?
Director Christine Johnson's husband had a Pontine Stroke on Oct. 15th, 2014. three days later he went in for a MRI and came out on Life Support, in a coma, non responsive in a locked in Syndrome. MRI revealed Central Pontine Myelinolysis. Dr.s had no hope and told the family it was time to remove him off life support and let him pass. The family wanted to give him more time. Over a month in a coma he woke up but was still in Locked in Syndrome only to be able to move his eyes and could not speak. This went on for another month. on the third month in the hospital he was able to be moved from Atlanta, Ga to Charleston, SC. A step closer to their home in Beaufort, SC. Almost 4 months in the hospital Jay missed Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years away from his family. Christine Closed her Prom, Wedding and Pageant Dress Rental business to move it on the family property. Not being able to work while being by her husband's side for the few months in Atlanta. Now after having him moved to Charleston, Christine drives daily to Charleston. WOW...This is a four hour road trip, stays by his side and is home in time to take care of their children when they are home from school until they can get him moved to Beaufort for the intensive therapy. Today he is in the Vibra Hospital in Mount Pleasant. He has since had his trach removed, gain facial movement, he can slightly move his right hand, arm and right foot. He moves his mouth as he is talking but you can not hear him talk. He is just being able to swallow but aspirates when he does. And he had a setback with C diff. Common with hospital and nursing home patients . We do not know the outcome if he will ever be able to walk. Preparation is going in now to Handicap the home. Please see list of supplies needed if you would like to donate. Also your help and time will be greatly appreciated to get the home ready to bring him home. In the meantime a gofundme account is being set up to help pay for supplies, medical bills, bills, gas, while the Johnson family goes through this hard time.
