The Fields Family

Da’mari Fields

Da’mari was admitted into the Phoenix Children’s hospital on Sunday 11/29/20 due to having MRSA infection in his right leg bone. We have now been in the hospital for over a week and we are expected to stay here a bit longer. Da’mari has already had 3 surgeries so far because of the infection and is expected to remain on IV as well as oral antibiotics for a couple of months once the infection is under control. This has caused extreme financial hardship on my family since I had just started working again after being laid off due to COVID19. I’ve only been with my current employer for a short time and don’t have any sick time nor PTO accrued. I also don’t know where I will stand with my employment once my son is released. Being with my son right now is my number one priority so I have been and will continue staying with him 100 percent of the time.

Da’mari has had 2 MRI’s and 3 surgeries so far we are hoping we can go home soon and be with his other siblings. He is beginning to start walking again using a walker.
