After the joyous addition of their daughter, Arielle, Katy Hayes experienced intense pain and went to the local hospital. She is currently at Kingwood Medical Center battling for her life after a series of complications resulting from a Streptococcal A infection. As a result, Katy has experienced multiple organ failure and is unconscious. Surgery Monday night involved the removal of several sepsis organs. She is currently on a ventilator and receiving dialysis. Katy has a long road to recovery.
Residents of Kingwood for nine years, Katy, her husband Al, and their three children, Amber, 16, Jake, 5, and Arielle, 7 days, currently reside in Greentree Village. Both self-employed, Al teaches music and Katy is a massage therapist. Whether you know Katy or not, know this: she has a great laugh, a quick smile, a warm touch, loves animals and is as down to earth as you can get. She’s active, hard-working, very devoted to her husband and children and a friend to all who know her.
Surrounded by family and supported by an amazing group of friends, the Hayes family has been overwhelmed with the outpouring of meals, childcare, phone calls, housekeeping, groceries and visits. Their financial need, however, is and will continue to be tremendous.
