Carey's Ruptured Brain Aneurysm

My mom had a brain aneurysm that no one knew about. Late Monday night/early Tuesday morning the aneurysm ruptured and causing almost flu like symptoms, neausa, extreme dizziness, and tiredness. She thought she had food poisoning from Monday night. After she threw up on Tuesday morning she was on her way downstairs to get water and tripped down the last few, hitting her head. A concerned neighbor checked in on her on Wednesday. Once the neighbor realized something was seriously wrong, she called my moms doctor to figure out what to do. The neighbor called me to take her to urgent care. Because my mom was on blood thinners for a few days due to a previous blood clot (not related in any way), urgent care sent us to the ER worried she had bleeding on her brain. The ER did a CAT Scan and found the bleed and the aneurysm. They transferred her to Freodert, where she had a procedure to take care of the aneurysm. And was improving. Thursday late morning/early afternoon the doctors and nurses were growing worried that she was unable to stay awake. -our brains create X amount of fluid a day, hers wasn't recognizing when X amount was reached and continued to create fluid causing more and more pressure to build. The docotor drilled into her brain to insert a tub to drain the fluid and relieve the pressure. She will be in the ICU for two weeks and will go to an appropriate room based on her point of recovery at that time. The money raised will help pay her bills while she is out of work. As I cannot afford her bills and mine. And the medical bills that won't be covered as ProHealth and Frodert is not in our insurance network. Any money will help. Please also share to help.
