Jeff is awake and beginning to breathe on his own!!! There is still a long way to go, but little baby steps everyday is how we get there! That being said, the doctors estimate 6-12 months before Jeff will be back to his normal, sweet, active self. Which means 6-12 months without work.
The amount of money that's been raised so far (almost $7,500!!!) is amazing. It's truly a blessing for the Nelms family and the gratitude they have for each supporter (monitarily, with prayers, or with words of encourgement) can't be put into words. They are incredibly humbled by the outpouring of love.
I, on the otherhand, am a realist. I know that every penny donated will help them, and I'm so thankful for all of the contributors, but I also know that this will only help for a few months. I'm raising the goal (now that we know how long Jeff is going to be out) to $12,000 in hopes that they don't have to worry about finances while they're worrying about getting Jeff well. It's only with your help that we can reach this goal!
