April 19, 2020 - Community Call to Action

Hello Dear Ones. 

 

By now you may have heard that Angela has ascended. She passed April 5 after being home from the hospital for a few short days. We are heartbroken with this loss, which is more painful still since her father, Joe, recently joined her.

Given our collective reality, we know our support looks different through this. We hug ourselves thinking of someday embracing Angela's children, her mother, her husband, her sisters. Given our collective strength, we also know our support can continue to help lessen their load.

 

Please consider contributing or sharing the active links that help organize this effort. There is a GoFundMe page and a recently re-activated MealTrain. You can click/copy/paste from links here or access them through the "Ways to Help" tab above. 



Angela's mother, Silvia, continues to care for Maya & Remy with her daughters, Rebecca & Melissa, one of whom is fighting COVID from home. Israel continues to heal from the hospital and hopes to be home soon. The MealTrain and GoFundMe supports all of them. 

 

They are all so hugely grateful for all that's already been done, for all that continues to flow towards them. Our loving kindness makes it all a bit more bearable. Many of us know the profound power of receiving care during heartache and hardship. For those of us who are new to this magnitude of tragedy, the following concept may help.


Please remember, the most powerful support you can give is to send healing, loving vibes to Israel, to Maya, to Remy, to Siliva, to Melissa, to Becky, to all of the members of this grieving family. And to yourself. Because each breath becomes a prayer when we inhale love and exhale fear. 

Show your love and support for Angela.

Make a donation to CaringBridge to keep Angela’s site up and running.

Hello Everyone, Angela has reached out with thanks & requests!

 

She is home and slowly gaining strength by walking, moving & eating. She continues to self-isolate/quarantine for at least another week. Israel is still in the ICU on ventilator. Both Angela & Israel have long roads of recovery. 

The kiddos are well and have been staying with Angela's mom & sisters, who love them fiercely. Big, loud shout-out of gratitude to them. Thank You. 

 

Angela has asked to re-activate the Meal Train. Please link here directly our through the "Ways to Help" link.  https://mealtrain.com/2yqg2q



Angela is full of gratitude and can feel all of our support. She says thank you for all who've sent energy, healing & any kind of support. She also gives another big, loud shout-out to the healthcare workers.

Thank You.

More Good News to Keep Us Going

Angela is home! Phewww.

 

She's very weak and tired, absolutely continuing to recuperate and heal. She and her family are understandably still under quarantine. Israel continues his own healing journey in the ICU - for now. 

 

Thank You everyone for holding space for this family, however that looked & felt for you. Please keep it up!! No requests yet, but I have a hunch that may change soon.

 

Breathe Deeply & Take Care.

April 2 - Moving Through Illness

Thank You everyone for your support & well wishes. 

 

The latest update, thanks to Angela's mamma is encouraging: Angela is awake & continuing to improve, yesterday doctors moved her out of the ICU. She's understandably very tired & weak and also was able to talk with her kiddos. Let's keep the health juju going. 

 

Israel is still at the hospital. Along with positive COVID, he also has pneumonia. He's been intubated but is responsive with eyes open. "He's going through process like Angela did" according to Mz Silvia. We hope he'll soon be out of the ICU. 

 

As of now, family hasn't asked for deliveries or support. I continue to offer as I know the community's offer stands. If anything comes up, I'll update & post here. 

 

Thank you. <3

An Encouraging Update!! 

 

Angela is doing better! Her vitals and responsiveness improved so much doctors decided to take the breathing tube out. Since then, she's breathing well, with no shortness of breath. Hallelujah!! 

 

Israel is also doing well. He's in the hospital on the observation floor and he also tested positive for COVID. His symptoms, especially his high fever, continue to improve. 

 

Hallelujah, Amen. Keep the vibes coming, y'all. The kiddos are well with Abuela Silvia.

Good Morning, Everyone - Thank you for supporting this powerful family. Angela's husband Israel has asked me to pause this mealtrain for a bit. He went to the hospital early this morning with a high fever and has been admitted. Their kiddos, Maya & Remy, are at Angela's parents' home who live close by. Please stay tuned here, I'll do my best to keep it updated. When the family is ready, I'll re-activate the mealtrain or other needs. If you have Angela or Israel's cell, please be mindful before contacting; this can quickly become overwhelming. This Page is a great place to send well wishes, prayers and uplifting words. You may absolutely share this privately, but please, until Israel or Angela or their family consents, let's keep the link, our friends' names & diagnoses off of social media. As best we can. Thank you, Laura
