Help After Surgery

Hello everyone. Towards the beginning of August, 2018, I began having severe abdominal pain. Two weeks later, it got so bad that I had to stop working. I could hardly stand, could barely walk or talk, and was unable to eat. I began going to Emergency Room after Emergency Room, where multiple testing was done to no avail. I would lay in bed all day, crying, and unable to move or even sleep. 

Finally, on September 12th, and after losing 20 pounds, I went for the fifth time to the Emergency Room at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center in Fort Pierce, where an Ultrasound and CT scan were performed. A mass the size of a fist was observed on the Ultrasound, and a hole in my stomach was observed on my CT scan. 

I was rushed into emergency surgery. As of September 17th, I am home, but still unable to work or move around. Work will not even be an option for at least three months. As you can tell, I have two children. I am a single mother with two children, and absolutely no income. I'm asking for any help possible just to keep the household afloat and keep a roof over our heads during this difficult time.

Thank you for taking the time to read this..
