Dec 27, 2013 My friend Deedra's husband had a horrible freak accident while hunting. He was in a hunting stand 20 feet up when he tripped and started to fall while holding his rifle. Naturally he reached out and grabbed for the railing as he fell. His rifle was still in his hand and he accidentally pulled the trigger. The bullet went through the top of his foot shattering the muscles, tendons, and bones. As bad as this sounds it was only the beginning of hell. Due to blood loss he suffered organ failure and was in a coma for 9 days. During this time his foot was amputated - he has had 7 surgeries so far. They may even have to take more of his leg. It continues to get worse - they discovered he is in the last stages of liver disease and is not eligible for a transplant. When he was in the Navy years ago he had a blood transfusion which gave him Hep C. Now he is in Stage 4 of cirrhosis of the liver and has been told he has 6 months to live. Deedra is on her own with him - she bathes him, feeds him, helps him do everything and supports him. They need help. Prayers are appreciated but they need financial help. 

Since the accident and discovery of liver disease she has devoted most her time to him. She is doing what she can to make extra money and as a last resort is selling her beloved horses. She cant afford to feed them. This is breaking her soul as they have been her solace since this happened. 

Please donate what you can, even if it is the cost of a cup of coffee. My friend is hurting and struggling and there is little i can do. She needs help with the rent, car payment, insurance, food, household bills, medications, MD appointments, etc. Please ask your friends to share and to share with their churches. She is one of my oldest friends from Jonesboro, LA.

Here is a pic of Theo and his terrier Toby before all this happened.

Deedra just posted her gratitude and thanks. She is so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support. People are amazing! It does my heart good to see everyone coming out in one form or another to help my friend. Here is an update - We are now toppling above $600,900.00 in medical bills. My credit cards are maxed out with hotel stays, hospital parking, special dietary needs (he gets ill every time he eats, so ensure and boost among other things we don't ordinarily purchase), bandaging supplies( I have to dress his stump myself) medicines, etc
