Help Debbie's Recovery

On Tuesday 11/21/2017, my mom went home on her lunch break for a power nap, but never showed back up to work. Her co-workers became worried and went to check on her. Her door was locked but her friend persisted and eventually my mom was able to gather enough strength to answer the door in her disoriented state. As soon as she opened the door, she passed out.
She was rushed to Kaiser's Emergency room and after her first CT scan, the enormity of the situation became evident.
She had had a massive brain bleed on the left side.
She has made huge improvements since being admitted but the road ahead will be long and trying for her.
Since the bleed was on the left side of the brain, her entire right (dominant) side of her body is showing the signs. She can't grip (yet). She's now able to raise her right arm and right leg, which she was unable to do last night.
Her speech is slurred and a lot of the time we can't understand what she's saying. But, she is making improvements.
After she's out of ICU, the road to recovery will be our main focus.
Unfortunately, there are financial issues ahead as well, that we don't want her to worry about. We are trying to get the paperwork in order but there are financial bumps ahead.
Any amount would be extremely appreciated.
The amount of support, love, and prayers has been overwhelming in the best possible way. Thank you! We love and appreciate you all.
