She was taken to the ER at Conroe Regional in Conroe, TX (which is an out of network hospital because she has OBAMA CARE) with what we thought to just have been an obstruction of her bowels. It turned out to be that she had an intestinal blockage and her small intestines had adhesions which had kinked her small intestines. They took her to surgery to correct this. When she came out of surgery the major problems began.
She became septic and developed pneumonia. Her vitals were all over the place and she was put on a ventilator, she was swollen and unable to move. She started losing blood somehow and the doctors were not able to locate the problem with scans and x-rays they finally found several pockets of blood and fecal matter. They keep having to go in and drain these pockets and they are giving her blood almost daily. She is having to be tube feed. She has been in ICU for the last 5 weeks. They just resently put a trachea in to help with her breathing.
She has life threaten problems which they are trying fix as they come up, but the things that they have done has helped very little. They have done all they can do for her there. Now she is being sent to an ICU unit in a Long Term Critical Care Facility in Springs, TX. This is further from our home which creates a problem because our car is not running well and if not fixed soon will not run at all. So, I need to get it repaired to be able to get back and forth to see her as soon as possible.
We were already on a very limited income and now with Donna not able to work we are living on my social security (which is very little) only.
Normally I would not ask for help but in this situation with her being in the hospital for what they expect to be very long term and not able to go back to work when she gets out, we are in real need of help.
First, I ask for prayers for Donna. Then I would ask that you might look into your heart and donate what you feel you can to help us get through this tragic time in our lives.
Any amount will be appreciated and we are very grateful for your help.
