Family Support

I am trying to raise the funds to assist me on visiting my daughter in Germany ASAP who has had four surgical operations since March 1st., and is in need of family support during this crisis.
My daughter is a loving 28 year old who in 2016 was in a terrible auto accident, which occured trying to avoid an animal in the road. Her emergency surgery had left a very unsightly scar on her abdomen. Her boyfriend, a serviceman in the Air Force was steadfast in his proposal to her and they were married later that year, only to see him reassigned to Germany.
In 2017 she joined her husband in Germany to start their new life together. On Mother's day of last year she flew back here to Massachusetts to say goodbye to a dear freind of ours who helped me raise her.
In Janurary of this year she was finally able to have cosmetic surgery to correct the scar left from her accident in 2016, and was overjoyed with it's results. On March 1st she was rushed to the hospital and into surgery to remove a cyst that had burst on one of her ovaries, and released later that night. She continue to complain of abdomen pain and returned to the hospital March 2nd, and again was rushed into a second surgery in as many days, due to intestinal problems. They had to remove parts of both her small and large intestines to correct the twisting found.
While still at the Hospital on March 5th, she again was taken into surgery her third, this time to address both a blockage and a infection at the surgical site. This time they left the incision open to try to ensure that there would be no further complications.
I have talked to her each day since the cyst operation when I could, as she continues to go in and out of consciouness due to the amount of anasthetic used in her multiple operations, which causes, pain, nausea and difficulty in breathing. Though her husband is there for her as well as the few friends she's met since arriving she still feels very much alone without family close by.
She had her fourth surgery on March 7th and at that time they closed the incision and were hoping that that would be the end of it. It wasn't. Through their test at the time of her lasted surgery they found she has what is called a super bug (virus) that is immune to the antibiotics they were giving her.
She is scheduled for another operation in six days to see if the regiment of diffrent antibotics has any effect on the super bug. She is depressed and scared and wishing I can find a way out there. My current situation financially makes it impossible to get out there so I'm starting this campaigne in hopes to be raise enough money for airfare so I can be there for her as soon as possible. God bless you and thank you for any assistance you may be able to help me with.
