MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A teenager had to be rescued from a culvert Sunday after being swept away by a current of water.Mobile Fire Rescue got the call for help Sunday afternoon. Two girls, aged 13 and 14 had been playing in two feet of water in a culvert behind Knollwood Apartments on Vista Bonita Drive. The current got too strong and swept the girls away. One of the teens managed to pull herself out, but the other could not. After Mobile Firefighters pulled the other girl from the water, they had to perform CPR. The teen was taken to Mobile Infirmary West where she is listed in critical condition.
It has been 3 years since that story was printed in the news paper and though she is not completely healed as I had hoped she is on her way. With the grace of God she has come a long way from where she was. Still not able to do things on her own and gained a few more issues along the way, she is still alive and healthy and more conscience now than she was back then. Still praying every day for that miracle.
Many of you know that I am a single mom and have chosen to stay home to take care of Lexi verses sending her to a nursing home. Personally,I could never leave her in someone else's care. God has been touching the hearts of others and taken care of our needs. I have worked nursing Lexi but have not worked at a job outside the apartment in over 3 years and so I have been asked several times is there a place to send donations. Yes there is. If you would like to donate we do appreciate it, and pray that everything that comes into this store house that it be multiplied and blessings come back to you, and we say thank you.
1. Paypal: firstname.lastname@example.org - please note it as "Lexi Donation" so that I can keep it separated.
2. Walmart registry or (wish list) ( Registry ID# 80523392120 ) I update it from time with little things that can help.
And last this site takes donations but they do not go to the patient it is to help maintain the site so if you would like to donate to Caringbridge website they have information on the side panel.
