Help save Linda Mabin (my Mother)

My mother was in intensive care following a stroke.

Linda Mabin worked at the post office for 30 years;  She is the nicest person in the world, always helped everyone, donated her time to charities, and was always everyone's best friend.  Her girlfriends would fight for position to be her best friend.  She was also president and treasurer of the stamp collectors organization.  Linda was retired from the post office, but still held down a full time job at the stamp collectors sales office, for orders and shipments around the world.

One day after work, she collapsed at TJ Maxx, shopping, and I received a phone call from the Emergency Room at the hospital , telling me, my mother collapsed in the store and had a seizure, and was not responsive, so the Ambulance took her to the ER.  I immediately rushed to the hospital, and she was in ER, in a coma;  After 1 week, initially the doctor told me, she may never come out of her coma.

Hundreds of my friends were praying for her recovery and I have to say, all the prayers worked, as she woke up from her coma.  As I was struggling, wondering what to do now, my ex wife said why don't you open a GoFundMe fund.  I never thought of that, so I did it...I was embarrassed at first to do it, I felt like I was begging, but my close friends and family convinced me, that no, it is not begging;  It is honestly asking for donation for a real worthy cause for someone in need.

Linda was in a coma for 1 week.  She has been released from the Initial ICU hospital and is now in a Rehabilitation hospital, and I am raising money to help for hospital expenses, co-payments, loss of work, and rising bills. Hoping for her to heal in the rehabilitation hospital.

The treatment is also monitoring and controlling her blood pressure, and she is still on life support. She is conscious and stable. The funds will help us to keep her rehabilitation going.

The situation is critical, as it has stretched our family to our financial limits with the many expenses.
