Help a Boulder Creek Family – Ramey White’s Arduous Journey Just Beginning

Below is an article written by Beth Volz about a Boulder Creek Family who is experiencing difficult, unforeseen times. If you’d like to help this family in their time of hardship, please visit: http://www.gofundme.com/RallyForRamey

 

Ramey White’s Arduous Journey Just Beginning

Can a story be heart-wrenching and heartwarming at the same time? Ramey White’s tale is both.

It began on Friday, January 23, when Boulder Creek resident Ramey White and his family were on a ski trip at Lake Tahoe for their six-year-old son Ryder’s birthday. But the next day, a devastating event occurred that would drastically change their lives.

On Saturday, Ramey spent the day teaching Ryder to ski. But when they returned to the car, Ramey told his fiancé, Lindsay Jamieson, that he could not feel his legs. That night, she massaged his legs, but he awoke in the middle of the night with excruciating pain and numbness.

Lindsey rushed Ramey to the nearest hospital, where doctors conducted a barrage of medical tests over the course of four agonizing days.  The doctors finally determined that Ramey had been stricken with Guillian-Barre Syndrome (Ghee-yan Bah-ray) or GBS. GBS is an autoimmune disease that attacks a person’s nervous system, causing paralysis throughout the body, including the lungs. Recovery can take up to three years.

Ramey was then transferred to the Neurology Department at Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, and was placed in the ICU, where he spent 18 nerve-racking days.

In her first post on the gofundme.com site http://www.gofundme.com/RallyForRamey, Lindsay began: “It’s hard to know even where to begin. This last week, of this journey we call life, has been harder than anything I’ve ever had to endure. We are starting a blog to keep everybody who loves Ramey up to date on his progress.

“As the reality of the situation sets in,” she continued, “Ramey was our only source of income, as I have been at home raising our six-month-old baby and six-year-old boy.” She added, “This is very difficult and very humbling, but we realize we can’t do this on our own. Continue reading
