Rabbi Trimm's Wife Hospitalized- Day 40 Update

As many of you know my wife went in the hospital on Aug. 3rd for surgery.  Things did not  go well.  On August 9th she was moved to ICU and was rushed into an emergency surgery.  She was in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator for two days and was incoherent for two days after that.  After several days in ICU she was downgraded to PCU.  However she was still septic and having more complications.

On August 28th she went back in for more surgery.  This was supposed to be a simple one hour procedure, but turned into a five hour operation, after which she was moved back into ICU on a ventilator and in a medically induced coma for three days.  She spent a two more days in ICU before being moved back to PCU (a step down from ICU).

So far she has, during this hospitalization, had three major surgeries, been in ICU twice, for about five days each, and been on a ventilator in a medically induced coma for two or three days twice!

It is about to be Wednesday Sept. 12th. My wife Kitty Trimm has been hospitalized for 40 days. I have been with her the whole time sleeping on a cot. She is still dealing with a lot of pain. She is such a fighter, pushing herself so hard in physical therapy.

Yesterday she stood up with the walker and walked around the hospital room twice!

I am so proud of her. She is working so hard to come home from the hospital, and not have to go from here, into a long term care facility.

We thought we might go home today, but she is showing signs that infection might have returned, so they are keeping her longer for observation (considering it nearly killed her twice previously).

This is hitting us hard financially as well (our daily co-pay is $200 plus for me to eat here is $10 for a guest tray each meal - that adds up). If you would like to donate, donations can be sent by PayPal to donations@wnae.org.


This is not a time that I need to be worried about ministry funds.  And yet this has created substantial additional expenses for us at a time when we can least afford it, and right as our rent and many of our bills are due

While we were here we got news that $1,ooo we anticipated receiving while we were here, and for which we were tightly budgeted, would not be coming in.


We have a substantial daily co-pay every day she is here and  I am having to eat from the hospital (they feed my wife free, but charge me $10 a meal for a guest tray).

****If you can make a one time donation of $500 or $1,000 dollars to support this work, now is the time!****

Background for those who don't already know:

As some of you may know, back in 2015 my wife had two major abdominal surgeries.  Due to complications from those surgeries she had to have an additional surgery last August (2017).  This surgery had an even harder recovery and we were at the hospital several days.

About two months ago I had to rush my wife to the Emergncy Room and learned that her surgery about a year ago had failed, and she would have to undergo a fourth abdominal surgery, on August 3rd.



Is this work worthy of your support? What other ministry provides this kind of teaching?

What other ministry is reaching the Jewish people with Messiah and the world with Torah like this ministry is?

Now is time to step up to the plate!

Sad to report that the doctors have concluded that my wife's infection has returned.  She is now back on antibiotics.  We will know more after they upen her surgical wound back up and look inside in the morning.
