Please Help Ayla with her Recovery
Imagine yourself waking up in the morning with the worst hangover. My daughter Ayla, wakes up every morning with a migraine that seems to never go away all because of the what we thought was a minor car accident. I am raising this money for my daughter. She is a mother of two boys, ages 5 and soon to be 10. She is a Certified Nursing Assistant and has always worked at least 2 different jobs at a time and at the time of the accident she also was going to Berkshire Community College to be a Register Nurse to then move onto be a surgical nurse. But this all changed when she got into a car accident on Saturday, September 24, 2016. After the car accident, Ayla thought all she had was whiplash and her sciatica was flaming up a little bit. She went to work that Sunday. Where she was suppose to work 7am to 11pm. But her weekend manger could see Ayla starting to have pain. So he asked her if she would like to go home at 3pm and she gladly said yes. The next day Monday, September 26, 2016 she went and saw her doctor. Her doctor gave her some muscle relaxers and sent her on way. Never sent her for scans for anything. After a couple of weeks, Ayla started having headaches that developed into migraines. She went to see her doctor twice more, and the second time she went she was prescribed Imetrex. This drug opens up your veins and allows more blood to get your brain. Ayla instantly, started to have pain even worse and her right side of her neck swelled up. She called her doctor right away, Friday, October 21, 2016 and I being the mother I am, I called her out of work for her that Sunday because she had to work 7am to 11pm and I was not about to let her work. She suffered until that Monday, and that's when she called her doctor again. I watched her suffer until the next day "Tuesday, October 25, 2016." This is when I basically shoved her in the car and made her go to the emergency room. In the emergency room at Berkshire medical Center she was sent to have a CATSCAN with contrast. This is when her emergency room doctor found her dissection. He came in the room and told her she had Vertabral Artery Dissection, and signs of a stroke, this is where she was immediately started on blood thinner injections, Coumadin tablets, verapamil three times a day for her low blood pressure, pain meds, and much more. Vertebral artery dissection (abbreviated VAD, often vertebral dissection) is a dissection (a flap-like tear) of the inner lining of the vertebral artery, which is located in the neck and supplies blood to the brain. This is usually caused by trauma. (Whip lash from accident) after being admitted they determined Ayla had a transient ischemic attack (TIA), also known as a ministroke, occurs when part of the brain experiences a temporary lack of blood flow. This causes stroke-like symptoms that resolve within 24 hours. Unlike a stroke, a TIA doesn't kill brain tissue or cause permanent disabilities. When she was admitted and settle in, the neurologist looked at Ayla, and said "the medication Immetrex didn't cause your Vertabral artery dissection, but it almost killed you". After being admitted, that Thursday, October 27, 2016, her doctor finally called her back and apologized for everything. Everyday twice a day for over two weeks, Ayla needed to have blood thinner injections and has been going to her doctors once to twice a week for her Coumadin level. Not including the 6 times she had to go back to the emergency room after she admitted. Her doctor has been so scared something was going to happen so she just sends Ayla to the hospital to make sure nothing else is wrong. But two of those times she went was because I made her because her doctor never sent in her pain medication. Ayla has not been able to work, and honestly really has had the worst luck lately. She has lost her car insurance, so now her car and her truck are not registered. She has lost her health insurance, because when she went to the hospital she put down her car insurance information and her health insurance thought Ayla had gotten different health insurance and they cancelled on her. She's currently trying to get it back. But then she borrowed someone's car and as she parked the car and got out, two seconds later a girl slammed into the side of the borrowed car and then left her there for hours. After that Ayla ended up back in the hospital for a bad kidney infection. Her car insurance also said they would pay her lost wages and medical bills up to 50,000. Her one job released all information needed to Geico, but her other job refuses release her information to Geico saying Ayla never missed any time. (Which is a lie.) Geico keeps giving Ayla the run around too, so now they have sent her a letter saying they want her to go to their doctor to prove that she is getting the right treatment. This is just another way of saying "what they are responsible to pay". Her appointment is not until February 27th, 2017. She has not worked or had any income since October 25, 2016 and her bills keep adding up. She has medical bills, prescriptions, rent bills, electricity bills, oil bills, gas bills, car insurance(which has cancelled), gas to get back and worth for her boys or to her appointments. She refuses to ask for help. So this is me asking you to help her. Anything helps. We are having a benefit for her too at the VFW, in Great Barrington, Ma. We booked it for Saturday, February 4th, 2017. For more info on the benefit you can contact Ayla by sending her an e-mail at [email redacted]. Thanks so much.
