Family Of 10 Just Needs A Little Help

We are a big happy family of 10. Christmas should be a happy time, but for our Christmas this year it has been nothing but trying to stay healthy. Our son mason started not feeling so good on Christmas Eve, then on Christmas was a little bit worse. A few days later we found ourselves taking Mason to the emergency room in the middle of the night. It was a very Quick emergency room visit , in and out within 2 hours. We found out that Masons has Influenzavirus B. A day goes by and Mason just keep getting worse and worse . We give it a day or so more then end up taking him back in because it didn’t seem right. He was having problem even getting up and walking. We end up taking him back to the emergency room, they run lots and lots of test . Mind you he has had fevers 99.9- 104 , diarrhea , cough, sinus pressure, wasn’t able to hold anything down for days now, and wasn’t able to walk. We stayed at the er for about 8+ hours. He ended up having a chest x-ray an x-ray on his leg and ultrasound on his leg . He had a little lump on this left bottom leg. They didn’t see anything to worry about and seen him home . They Just thought he had bumped his leg . Even though I didn’t feel right about it. We went back home again. Not even 24 hours later we end up back at the emergency room. His leg when from no red on it to red up his left leg. Ended up waiting hours in the waiting room before we got seen by a doctor. The doctors couldn’t believe that his leg had changed that much in less in 24 hours. So hear we are today in the hospital staying for a least a few days. Not only he has the flu b , he also has Cellulitis. It’s so bad that it looks like will he will have surgery in the morning to get it drained. And to top it off he’s getting an infection on his right hand to. To top it off I still have to be a mother to 7 other kids that I can’t forget about. My heart aches that I can’t be in both places at once. But we are finding our family in a hard place right now , with me having to take so much time off work to be by masons side though out this . I’m now finding it even hard to put food on the table. Rent is due on the 7th and we are struggling to figure out how to pay. It breaks my heart To have to write this and ask for help. But I would do anything to make sure my family it taken care of. I don’t know how many more days I will have to take off with mason still having to be in the hospital for a least a few more days . So I’m asking from the bottom of my heart for help , any thing helps . Money , food , babysitters. Anything.
