“Mrs. Thomason, its ALS” - These were the words that would change our lives forever.
Three solemn UAB Neurologists stood at the foot of her hospital bed on June 10th and, in an instant, drastically changed the projection of her life. After searching for answers for 5 worrisome months and continuing progression of muscles weakness, dexterity and speech, this was not the diagnosis we wanted to hear.
My sweet bonus mom, Kelly; a Godly woman, a wife, a mother, a grandmother and a friend to so many. I’m not sure how we got here or why we are here, but I do know that God is always faithful! He does have a plan and although we may not understand the purpose of this trial, we take comfort in knowing that He is walking it with us and is always in control.
Unfortunately, Kelly is now at the point where she needs more extensive care. My Dad, the sole provider in the home, will now have to take an extended, unpaid leave of absence to take care of her. While we are incredibly grateful that he has a job that will allow him to take the time to be able to lovingly care for her and spend these precious moments with her, the financial strain is mounting. I’m hoping that by created this fundraiser, I can alleviate some of the financial weight and stress this carries.
More than anything, we desire your prayers as we trek through this new journey in our lives and we thank all of you for your donations, your prayers and your time.
