My Blood Clots won't Stop me!

Hello EVERYONE, My name is Michelle and I am 32 yrs old and have 3 children. We all have a story to tell and some might not be to easy to talk about, not because we don't wish to but just because we just don't know. So I have lived a pretty much healthy life... I was told at an early age it would be hard to have kids bec I had Endometriosis... but God willing I had 3 Beautiful, Hyper, Smart kids 2 Boys and 1 Girl. So now I sit here in one of the best hospitals in Atlanta at 11:11pm thinking and crying bec I have not been able to understand Y this is all happening to me. I had a Hysterectomy Oct of last yr, a week later diagnosed with a blood clot in my left lung. I was then hospitalized for almost 3 weeks with internal bleeding, I was passing blood clots the size of a Tennis ball. I had 2 blood transfussions I was not able to get out of bed and even walk because I would lose so much blood. I missed my kids honors assembly prior to this I had not been away from my kids ever, and Doctors were so lost on what had caused all this to go so wrong. I was on Lovinox shots in my stomach and blood thinner pills for 10 months. I recently was taken off to see how my body would react.... well test were done and I have a genetic mutation in which puts me at a higher risk to produce clots. I also have a leaking valve in my heart. It is important to know your family history,but when your not raised by either and don't know who your father even is.... what do you do.. So now I am here with problems breathing and another clot in my right lung. Doctors are puzzled cause I look so young and not having any previous health issues all this is so sudden and yet so serious. I have been in the hospitals at least every week with difficulty breathing and chest pains. I need to take blood thinners now forever along with the other medicine to maintain my blood levels where needed to be. My body aches, my muscles, I'm not the same. But I was beginning to have some hope that I was going to be ok without needing a lifetime treatment. I have been told about a new medication but it cost alot more then I can financially handle. I ask not for Pitty or for 1,000 dollar check but if you can Donate even $1.00 and keep me in your prayers, I would highly appreciate it from my heart. Being away from my family is hard, Having these reoccurring blood clots that if traveled to my heart would be the end of my story is emotional to handle. I am strong and I know I will overcome this fear and at times when I question the Y's and feel lost inside. Reality HITS and reminds me of my Reasons ELIJAH,MARIAH,ISAIAH. Thank you for reading this chapter of my book and please feel free to share. And if you can't Donate a Prayer is worth soooo much more. MICHELLE &nthank you to all my family and friends for all your support.
Thank you to all my friends and family who have Prayed, Shared, and Donated. This truly means sooo much to me, I have been blessed with all the help, but I have also received some messages about applying for Obama care or Medicaid, and some even thinking that this a scam. I have applied for Medicaid and will also try for Obama care. But at this present Moment... My treatment,, medications are not cheap at all!!!! These blood thinner shots an pills cost a lot.... So I can't just wait on the 20 days it takes to process my apps. Again this is my situation and it's not easy although we all have our own battles to fight and financial situations. I did not create this to go shopping to scam to ask for pity from no one... as I sit here at 2:54 am and Thank GOD for this great day I have had with my family. I ask that he cont to give me the strength and peace of mind that I will make it through this situation, and see my kids grow. So as I sit here and hear the snores of everyone sleeping I am just Thankful that with these reoccurring blood clots and hard to breath moments. I appreciate life and the chance to share my story and in some way helps me in a therapeutic manner to express my inner feelings. So here I add some pics of my lovely journey so all who don't believe its true can realize it has not been easy. This yr has been hard to understand more then the feelings I've gone through and the experiences... bec the pain heals and returns but my mind can't grasp the reasonsssss y after 32 yrs of being healthy y now must I go through this????? But who am I to ? the man above.
