Hello and thank you for taking the time to read about our outreach. Our daughter, Celina, was hospitalized on June 6, 2014. She turned 19 on May 27th. She went in for, what we thought was dehydration. Little did we know she had a brain hemorrage. She went from being admitted into the e.r. to on a ventillator in a matter of hours. She was only given 2 days to live. Her mother, grandmother, and 13 year old sister were here in Phoenix and able to be by her side right away. Her father and I were a state away and could not book a flight the night it happened because driving would get us here by the time the first flight would have landed. We loaded clothes in a bag and drove through the night to get to our little love. Little did we know, our lives were forever changed. We didn't return back. We left our jobs and home and stayed here. Night after night at the hospital. The early morning we arrived, they informed us that our daughter would not make it within the next 48 hours and to say our goodbyes. Her father collapsed. With the strength of the good Lord and family and friends, we are pushing through day by day. It is our hope that Celina will get to come home soon. She progressed from 2 days to live to having emergency brain surgery to intense, inpatient rehabilitation in the 2 months that she has been here. She is a true fighter. Every day we can expect new progress from her. She cannot speak, walk, use the restroom on her own, shower herself, write, feel her right side. She is challenged to even feed herself due to a feeding tube. But she doesn't stop trying. She pushes herself to the point of nausea and vomiting. I just want to thank anyone and everyone, in advance. If you cannot donate, that is perfectly fine. Please take this story and hug the ones you love. Hold them a little tighter. You never know if things will change in an instant. We got the pleasure of our daughter visiting us just the week before she was hospitalized. I am so glad we spent every little bit we could. ~God Bless~
