Posted on June 4, 2013Hello Everyone,
Wanted to let everyone know that we finally got married!! This past Friday the 31st of May at 7:15 we were wed! The wedding was beautiful and it was more that I ever thought it would be :) We are back home and still trying to find a place to live that it affordable and handicapped accessible for the apartment we are in is not handicapped accessible and makes living so much more difficult. We are currently considering Alive Hospice Center as an option for living until we can find a more suitable home. Thank you everyone that has supported us through everything so far!

Posted on May 27, 2013Hello everyone,
Thursday the 23rd I had to readmit James to the ER for a bed wound that was getting out of control. He received this bed wound at Stallworth because they were not turning him as they should have been, he received a urinary tract infection and they were not treating it properly so it too was still there and we had no idea until we actually got to the ER and heard his lab test results. He was running a 103 fever when I brought him in, they found infectious bacteria in his blood and the uti. They have him on atibiotics and his white count is going down since the antibiotics are working to reduce the infection. We received a visit today (27th) from some doctor in the oncology dept telling us chemo is not an option now, well really? You should know thats not a priority right now! We also received words of doubt saying that yes they can get rid of the infection now but with the open wound it could take weeks to months to heal it and they were wanting to send him back to Stallworth for it! Excuse us, but Stallworth did this to him, why in the world would we ever go back?!?! I sware that if he dies from this wound, Stallworth will pay. James clearly stated he wants to be at the house be the 30th and the social workers here are working on getting a sort of hospice care for the house. He said marrying me is the last and only thing he wants from this life and I am doing my best to fulfill that wish and whatever other dying wish he may have. I love this man, some have said I'm foolish to stay, foolish to marry, but if you wouldn't do the same for your significant other, I say you are the foolish one and what is love? He is still fighting as always and I am right by his side however tough this road may get.

Posted on May 14, 2013UPDATE! We are getting married!! Thanks to you guys :) May 31st at 7:15pm is the date here in Nashville and we are so excited!!! Set in stone finally and can't wait! Thank you all for the donations, we are still accepting donations for his medical supplies. He will need things like catheters, a new low pressure bed, a shower stool, prescriptions, bars/railing installed, a ramp to our apartment entrance, accessible shelving and we're saving for our next move in August when this lease expires so that we may move into a handicapped accessible spacious apartment. Again, thank you guys for everything, it is all appreciated more than you know! :)

Posted on May 9, 2013Thank you to those that have donated so far. We really didn't know what to expect out of all of this but you guys are definitely giving us hope! James is fighting through his rehab. He sadly has developed tendonitis in both of his shoulders from wheeling around his wheelchair that is not custom fit but Stallworth is looking to make some adjustments for him. A small set back but Stallworth has said they can keep him there until the 21st so that he can get the therapy he needs. Our love goes out to all of you!
