Cindy Mortenson’s medical expenses.

$1,670 of $6,500 goal

Raised by 32 people in 1 month
My mother fell sick on Wednesday.. she was diagnosed initially with tension headaches and sent home. She then went back to the emergency room to be diagnosed with alpha-hemolytic strep which turned septic and ultimately into endocarditis. She was seemingly on the mend until last night when her health took a turn for the worse. She had to be intubated and sedated where she will remain for the next 3-5 days. After that if all goes well she will still most likely be at the hospital for the next  10-14 days after that. We are working with her job and her landlords, trying  to take care of bills and the inevitable hospital bills from the countless tests and procedures done. The doctor believes she will make a full recovery but this is going to be a long process. Anything will help there is no desired goal, any money will be directing going to support my mom and my family with the expenses of this tragedy. She is currently in the ICU of Mercy Medical in Redding CA.

Hi guys! I have some amazing news to update you all on. Thursday night my mom was extubated after an hour and a half of breathing on her own she was taken off the machines and is awake and doing so much better! She spent Friday and some of today in the ICU still but is healthy enough to move to a regular hospital room now! Everyone’s overwhelming support and love has helped all of us make it through this week of (pardon me) absolute hell. There’s still a long road to recovery ahead but with everyone’s help financially it won’t be so hard on her or her family now. Thank you all and any further donations will be met with the same amount of gratitude as this stay in the hospital will be a spendy one and is keeping my mom out of work. We love you all and thank you all!!!!

Hi everyone. I updated the goal as her deductible fo her insurance is $5,000. The original $1,200 was just to cover her living expenses when she got out. I am sure her hospital bill will be much more than $6,500 but we have family members working to deal with the financial aspects as well this is just for any extra help from the community we can get. I know it may seem small but even if you can only donate $5 please do. All of those small donations will add up and go towards taking care of the bills you forget about until times like these.
For everyone asking and worried about Woodson her pup who we all know is my moms world, I have him and am taking care of him. There is an overwhelming amount of love and support coming from everyone and we all are super appreciative of anything anyone gives us even if it's just sharing the fundraiser page.
Thank you all.

After a CT was done of her abdomen last night the hospital found abscesses in my mothers liver, uterus and colon. She is having an ultrasound done and a colonoscopy done today in the hopes to drain some of the abscesses. She will continue to be intubated at least until Thursday as when she is sedated and resting is when her body seems to be healing the best. The doctors have now finally found the source of the infection and will be working on a treatment plan. Immediate family only are able to visit with her at this time due to how sick she is, multiple visitors are causing her distress at this time. This is the latest updated and I’ll update more as I know more. I have to go back to Oregon on Friday for work but she has my uncle and his wife with her almost 24/7.

Hi you guys. Thank you so much for the donations that have happened overnight. My family is so appreciative for any help. Today I got together and figured out as much as I could bill wise for my mother as I don’t have access to her bank accounts right now. Her rent has already been paid for so she will have a home to come home to but her car and other expenses equal to about $1200 so I did update the goal, again, anything helps! Even shares!
So far today her vitals are still good xrays are still good and the treatments seem to be working. Thank you all.
