Care fund for my wife Leilani

On 11.25.2009 my wife Leilani was admitted in the hospital for elective heart valve repair surgery. This was the only major surgery she ever had. It was supposed to help her live a long & healthy future life with no further procedures other than follow-ups. Instead of being released in 4-5 days alonng with 5-6wks recovery at home the next morning she ended up on life support in a coma with massive brain swelling due to complications during and after the procedure. She was given very little chance for survival.  It was a miracle she was able to come out of a coma after 3 months.  It's taken many years of continued daily therapy to bring her back to us.  She is still paralyzed except for some movement in her right arm & still on a feeding tube , but can now speak more freely and has fully regained her vision.  Our insurance ran out along time ago and she will need to be in a nursing home for the rest of her life where she can best be taken care of. We need help with her long term care costs and any amount given to further her chances of a longer life will be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks for your support on this recovery journey ,
Leilani & Mario
