MJai's Home!

Deanna and MJai
Thank you so much for your donation to MJai's healing fund.  BECAUSE of your total generosity we have raised about 3,000!

I went to visit MJai yesterday and Deanna was there too! Along with Mom and Brother!
MJai is still in a lot of pain but is happy to be home looking out at the beautiful bloomfield vista. It's lovely with bricks and hills and roof tops - so much better then hospital parking lot construction!

Mjai is not going to Maryland which was an option but will stay here. Deanna has made a google calender for people to sign up to help make food, walk dog, clean house and chill! When MJai's mom leaves in about two weeks we will want close friends to stay over, so that will probably be a function of the calender too. Please email deanna if you want to be added to the Calendar.  squareroot@cheerful.com  or if you have questions about it too.

MJai doesn't have any major food restrictions. They prefer vegetarian - however they are trying to build up their blood so "anything goes" Just be light on the gluten Oh KAYE!

As far as visiting! You are invited! BUT please call or text MJai before. There are definite times when they don't have energy to handle visitors, so it is very important to give a heads up if your planning a visit. MJai's # is 412-315-8940

Donate Money for MJai!

Hey Everyone!

Please consider donating some money for our sweet friend MJai who was hit
by a car in Bloomfield wednesday morning. It was a hit and run! Seeing that MJai was hit so hard they spilled over the hood bike and all, the driver couldn't have "not noticed" they hit a precious human AND thier beloved bike.

So today is Friday and MJai is on the mend! While there are some financial opportunities through different victims of crimes funds (and a hit and run IS a crime) and also the Charity care option at UPMC, we friends and family would like to pitch in too.

MJai broke their femur/thigh bone in 3 places! I heard the doc himself say it was realigned perfectly, so that is positive. THE TOTALLY INTENSE PAIN isn't so positive. The only attending 3 days of orientation for the new nursing position at UPMC shadyside, not so positive. Like will MJai not be able to work there because of this? (We don't know) The having friends and family support TOTALLY POSITIVE.

There is one specific medication that will cost $1000. It's an anti-coagulant that makes sure the high risk femur fracture patient doesnt get a "blood clot and die". The doc said it himself. We agreed that would be very bad! The family is trying to get medical assistance for it, but we thought it would be awesome if they didn't have to worry about that in case all the paper work doesn't go through.

So can you spare some money for MJai? If the funds do come thorugh, it would still be nice to gift our dear friend who has just been through a tramatic accident some cash to make the mend alittle easier.

If 20 people gave $50 bucks. That would be $1000.
If 40 people gave $25 bucks. That would be $1000.
If 66 and 1/2 people gave $15. That would be $1000.

A $5 dollar donation is nothing to sneeze at!

Any amount helps.

people who love MJai!!
