Esta and I returned from a two week winter vacation in South Padre. Unfortunately my wife Esta came home with LEGIONNAIRES DISEASE! I do not know how I did not catch it along with her but within 16 hours of arriving at the hospital Esta was completely incapacitated and a machine was breathing for her. At around the 24 hour mark she was LIFE FLIGHTED from Northland to St Lukes on plaza. within 4 hours of arriving there she was put in an induced coma, taken off of oxygen to the lungs and put on an iron lung, which has her blood being removed from her body cleaned/oxygenated and returned to keep her alive, hopefully giving her lugs a chance to heal. She may be in a coma any where from 3 weeks to 3 months according to the doctors. Please understand and know that 100% of any funds raised will be for the sole purpose of our medical care bills. This has all happened so fast, I and our three kids are just reeling right now. Our youngest D'Artagnan age 14 is still home, William age 18 in collage and Jesse 28 out making his way in life. This Support means so much to us as we have little insurance and the bills could run into over million dollars before all is healed. I am so very very thankful for you! May God bless you for your giving to this most worthy cause.
