You might have heard us talking about the Davidson family this morning, if not here is their story...
Alex Davidson was a BEAUTIFUL vibrant and very sweet little girl. Even though she could be stubborn at times, she could always flash those beautiful eyes and that sparkly grin and turn the table and make everything ok. About the time Alex was 11 years old, she started to experience some "Stomach issues" by the time she was entering High School, after making the Cheerleading Squad, she could not even cheer at one game. You see Alex developed Crohn's Disease, a disease most people associate with older people.
At 20, she has now spent more than half of her life sick. She has spent more than 2000 days in the hospital and has had numerous operations that has left her with a body that is fragile and just doesn't allow her to do many of the things that Alex would love to. While her head tells her that she is a 20 year old, her body just won't do those things anymore.
Alex has now been placed into hospice care. The hospital bed delivered and the family tried moving into a bigger home to accomodate the hospital bed and equipment that Alex would need to be comfortable, not ot mentin the many visitors that would come to show their love.
When they found the "new" home, Alex told her mother that this was "it". This was where she wanted to spend her last days. The family has moved, unpacked and was preparing to go ahead and prepare the house for the holidays so that they could celebrate early if they needed to. Instead they are now having problems from the owner (who was aware of the situation) and now are being forced to move out in a matter of days. The details are insane and at this point, irrelevant.
The Davidson's have found, and moved into, a new home! Alex was put in inpatient hospice care during the move, but is expected to come home today! Although the Davidson's have found a place to live, they can still use your help.
