My son in law, Trevor, is back in the hospital for the 3rd time this month.. If you dont know their story let me share a little with you..
Trevor and Savana (my oldest dd) met a couple of years ago and fell in love almost literally on their first date. They were married 6 months later and are so very happy.. Trevor has 2 adorable kiddos, that are actually very close in age with my youngest two adopted kiddos and they are the best of friends.
Trevor has diabetes.. he has had this horrid disease since he was just a young child and has been insulin dependent for over 20 years. However, he was doing great until January this year.. 9 months after they were married.. He started to get sick, have seizures and his blood sugars started to be uncontrollable.. This is when he started to go to the doctors and we found out that his kidneys and pancreas were starting to fail. The first things that all the drs pushed for him to do was to prepare for the transplant list. The things required to be able to be on the list took up until October to finish.. They finally finished the last thing needed and were told that they are now denied for the transplant due to not having a secondary insurance.
Now, Trevor has gone through several surgeries, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of prepatory treatments for the transplant and now is on complete dialysis. He has been doing dialysis at home now for the last couple of months. This past week he started to see yellow and was taken to the hospital yet again. They did surgery this morning to put the cathetar into his chest for hemo dialysis, which he will have to go to the hospital 3-4 times a week to do. This, is a hard blow, he will now have to quit the job that he has been literally killing himself to do because they needed the secondary insurance. He had to make it until Dec 9th to qualify for the insurance at this job.
We have gone to every resource that is possible to get help.. nothing is working... When they finally got onto medicaid they lost it as the medicaid team told them to apply for medicare.. as soon as they were accepted on medicare they were taken off of medicaid immediately.. this was about 5 months ago.
Right now Trevor is extremely sick, they think other organs are now starting to shut down. He is extremely discouraged and starting to give up. Savana is beside herself with grief.. Mind you she is only 22 years old, while all of her friends are getting married and starting their families, she is trying to keep her husband alive and positive and fighting for life..
Kacee my second DD, Savana's sister has started a Quest for encouragement cards for both of them.. If you would like to send a card of encouragement we would love to share them with them.
You can send the cards to:
