During my family vacation which began on August 23, 2014, my mom was taken to emergency and hospitalized two days into our vacation on Monday morning, and has been in ICU since then. It was discovered that my mom received antibiotics during a previous hospitalization either in April or June 2014 that impacted the good bacteria of her colon, leaving the rapid growth of the bad bacteria that was causing her organs to shut down. She was very weak when we took her to the emergency room, with a very grim diagnosis of not even surviving the next 24 hours. However, God has miraculously brought her through to the amazement of the doctors and us all.
The cover photo is my mom at her 80th Birthday Party last March. My mom is a trooper, and our family wants to be there in Florida with her during her recovery so she can come home, but most had to return home to Michigan yesterday as our family’s vacation ended. To support her speedy recovery, the doctors have expressed the importance of having family nearby. My sister and I remained in Florida, and my other siblings will need to rotate staying in Florida to be with our mom during this time. I am asking for financial support to cover the cost of transportation to and from Florida, hotels for housing, food and gas so we can be near our mom and oversee her care.
In lieu of financial contribution, if you or someone you know is living in the area of Palm Coast, Florida, or living in the Daytona or St. Augustine, Florida areas that have housing available for two adults, that would be greatly appreciated also.
My family needs $8,000, hopefully in the next 7 days, to cover housing, airfare, food and gas for the next 6 weeks to accommodate the family being in Florida with our Mom. We are not leaving our Mom behind alone and need your support to purchase airline tickets, housing, food and have money for gas to get back and forth to the hospital and airport.
Any contribution will be appreciated and will help us support our mom to full health.
