    Hey guys! If you've been following my story, I'm getting my long lost half-brother Greg out of jail next week and moving him in with me in South Carolina. I started a fundraiser just to get him the essentials....mainly so he does feel as dependent on me starting out. If you could donate $5-10 and/or share the campaign, that would be a huge help!

    Here's the link to the campaign-

    TY in advance...and he is a huge Dolphins fan! Oh, and that's me in the pic, if you were wondering what I look like. =)

    LOL, I appreciate that brother...I haven't been online in about a week. My mom had a blood clot in her leg, blood thinners didn't work and she lost the leg last week. Since then, the rest of the leg has healed nicely but infection spread to her lungs- we're not 100% sure she's going to make it. I've practically lived at the hospital the past 10 days. I've been updating on Facebook to keep the calls down for my dad- feel free to friend me to stay in the loop if you're interested- https://www.facebook.com/keith.koons.5

    My brother Greg is still doing great though and working his butt off. Thanks for those who donated since we used that to clear up his fines in Fla so he can get his license back! He now has a basic wardrobe as well, so he's in good shape other than needing a few more pairs of jeans (which he can now buy himself with the job, we just haven't had a chance to take him shopping with my mom). We're hoping to have him on the road next Monday once he gets his next paycheck.....that's going to be huge under the circumstances so we can take getting him to work off our plate.

    To top it all off, our 5 month old puppy darted out the door the other day and got hit by a car- they're amputating her leg today. So we've been through the ringer these past few weeks.

    Wow man, that all sounds rough. At the very least consider yourselves lucky the puppy survived that. I had a dog do that on Halloween when I was much younger and he didnt make it unfortunately.
