November 2021 Donation: Brandi Hobbs-Tanis
On Sunday, October 3rd Brandilyn "Brandi" Hobbs-Tanis developed a cough and fever, and on the 4th she came back with a positive covid 19 test. She has experienced severe symptoms that have been exacerbated by her preexisting immunodeficiencies. After nearly 2 weeks in the hospital on oxygen, feeding tubes, steroids, and much more she was finally able to go home, albeit with an oxygen machine.
A few pictures of Brandi's journey. From home oxygen and into the hospital and now off high flow oxygen.
Fri Oct 15 She worked very hard all night doing breathing exercises to clear fluid from her lungs. Sleeping was difficult as she kept gagging on her feeding tube that was moving around. By morning the decided to take her feeding tube out and she can actually start eating and drinking. Yay! Still on oxygen but making progress.
She is a Medical Assistant and recently made the jump to a stay at home mom. When she did so, they lost health insurance with the plan to get on my son's health insurance. They have to wait for an open enrollment window. So they do not have insurance st the worst possible time.
It is obvious the medical bills are going to be through the roof. They estimate she has another 5-7 days in there. Any amount raised in our small family/ social circle will surely not be enough but it will be 100% deeply appreciated by all of us that love her so much. Most of all her 3 children. She is their world 24hrs a day and she is gone. They do not know the severity of her condition, just that mom needed more oxygen than she could get at home. She is desperately trying to get back home to them. Any help would go a long way to helping them with this financial burden.
