The Story

Thursday, October 3rd, Dean had an accident at home that left him with injuries to his face and brain. At this time we aren't sure what his long-term condition will be, but we do know that he will need multiple surgeries and will have a long recovery period. His family is in need of financial support to help pay for unpaid medical expenses and to allow Vickie to take time off from work to visit Dean in the hospital and to care for him when he eventually comes home.

The goal amount of $12,000 is based on projected unpaid insurance expenses.

The Jares family has been strong supporters of others in our community for years. Please help them in their time of desperate need.

Happy new year to all you wonderful, giving and caring human beings out there. I am writing as we have completed the 2013 tests and doctor appointments and thought you all would like an update.

Dean's jaw is still wired but that was expected. We will find out more concerning that in a month. His eye we will find out more about in 2 months. Dean is doing very well, his spirits are rising as well as his energy level. He is anxious to begin driving and has been keeping himself busy doing things around the house.

There is not as of yet a lot of news, but Dean is doing exceptionally well, the doctors have all been pleased and a bit surprised, they say he is a good healer.

We had a quiet Thanksgiving and Christmas, it was pleasant and felt comfortable.

Thanks to all who have given a part of yourself to make our situation less stressful and also to remind us of all the many many things we have to be grateful for!

Happy new year to everyone, we are wishing for 2014 to have memories that make us smile.

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude towards all who have helped us in the many ways that they have, including keeping us in their thoughts. It has been warming and comforting to feel the care & concern that has come from many directions. 

Dean is slowly coming along, he still has surgeries ahead of him and is, of course, a bit concerned about them. His therapy goes to once a week starting after Thanksgiving, he is glad about that. We find out the end of December how his healing is coming along and I will re-post to you then. For now, it's one day at a time, and I am grateful for the days.

Just a fast update:

Dean is doing amazingly well. Thank you all so much for your positive thoughts; I do really believe it makes a difference. He is in therapy 6 days a week from 9am-315pm. I am sitting at the hospital right now, so thought I would take a moment to send an update. His reconstruction of his lower jaw went perfectly! The upper jaw will be a few months in the determination and possibly more surgeries. His sinuses are done. There will be surgeries over the next year. They are going to call us Monday about blinking possibilities, who'd of thunk it??

Things are going amazingly well! 

Hugs & much gratitude to everyone,  

Vickie
