A Place For Desi

XApproximately three years ago I began experiencing stomach symptoms including: vomiting, severe bloating, and drastic weight loss. I was diagnosed with gastroparesis.Since then, I have been receiving a large amount of my nutrition through feeding tubes and now a central line to my heart.The skilled care that I require as a result of both the gastroparesis and my cerebral palsy has placed me in a skilled nursing home in Lincolnshire, Illinois. I enjoy it here and have become involved in presiding over Resident Council, calling bingo, and creating projects and activities for everyone. Upon admission, I was never told that charges were accruing from August until November; I accumulated $3000 in back owed money. State rules only provide an allowance of $30/month. I love the facility and consider it to to hopefully be my "temporary home "as I continue to get better. If my medical status requires it, this will be a long-term stay.I know I have asked for money before and that it has been difficult for me to stay in touch these past few years. I sincerely apologize. Please help me stay here by helping to pay off the balance.
