My dad has had severe colitis for a few years now , but it could always be managed until now . Last weekend 9/20 he was admitted into the hospital for pain , later we found out he had becomeseverely anemic from the colitis , and had internal bleeding . The pain was from a kidney stone which was minor but if he would have never gone in for pain , he would have passed away without us having a clue . He had lost so much blood that he didn't even have half of what he should , after several blood transfusions they stabilized him and he was released a few days later . All of this happened with him having NO insurance , he lost his job last month which means he lost all coverage . He is going to need to see his doctors & need several more blood transfusions . He is a father to myself (22) & two older sisters (24 & 26 ) & also a grandpa to our 4 children , two girls ages 2 & 20 months & two boys 1 month old ! He's an amazing man , father , husband and papa ! We love him so much & would be lost without him !
