Delicia’s Story

Site created on October 21, 2019

On Sunday, October 20, Delicia suffered a massive stroke. She was quickly transported to United Hospital where she underwent tests that determined a massive brain bleed. They brought her into surgery that morning and removed a portion of her skull to relieve the pressure off of her brain and to try to stop the bleed. Multiple tests were performed and Delicia spent 30 days in the hospital. A care conference was held on Nov. 12, and the doctors told us that Delicia had severe brain damage and the prognosis wasn't good. Delicia went home on Nov. 20th to receive hospice care. Since then, she's been under the watchful eye of her loving husband Jason and surrounded by close friends and family. Jason updates her journal daily. Thank you so much for your support.

Journal entry by Jason Jones

Hi everyone!  Just some updates about Delicia's Celebration of Life. I copied this from a fb event I created.

"This is an event for Delicia's Celebration of Life. If you knew Delicia, you would know that she was always having fun and being the life of the party. So, let's let her do that some more! It's okay if you don't know her or if you only know me. More the Better!

The event at Amsterdam Bar in Saint Paul, Minnesota will go from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. There will be music and a microphone. Come casually dressed, come in costumes, come in business, come as you are. Delicia would not have it any other way! There will be bartender. Also, children and young adults under 21 are permitted until 8pm. Just a reminder though that this is a bar. They do have some pretty good food up there if you're hungry.

Come the whole time or just a bit."

If you have any questions you can email me or text or call or whatever works for you.  I hope to see everyone there who has been following this site who is able to go. 

Thank you and I appreciate all your support.
