Paralyzed Mom needs help

My Mom Patricia was in a terrible car accident on Fathers Day June 15, 2014. Her spinal cord was severed 3/4 of the way and she is paralyzed from the neck down. She has been in the hospital for 5 weeks in Jacksonville and was move by ambulance to an acute care center out of town yesterday, July twenty third. My Mom is still on a ventilator and also has a Diaphragmic pacer like Christopher Reaves once had. Not a lot of Hospitals have experience with these as my mom was only the 11th person to have one of these devices surgically inserted at the previous Hospital in Jacksonville, FL. We had a very hard time trying to find a Hospital that would be willing to help wean her off of the Ventilator especially with the Diaphragmic pacer. We were able to find a Hospital 180 Miles from home. I have had to take an unpaid leave from my job to be by my Moms side to make medical decisions as my Mom has a Trache and feeding tube and cant speak at this time but is completely alert. There are many expenses and I am trying to see that my Mom receives the best care possible. Once weaned off the Ventilator my Mom should be able to speak and hopefully eat again. Also once off the Ventilator she can be moved to a Rehab Hospital and discover if she can regain any movement. I need help with all of these costs. My Mom is a great Lady who has helped so many people in her life and loves the Lord. I would be be very grateful for any help so that she can try and continue as much of a normal life as possible.
