Emergency Support for Mother helping ill Son

Hello friends, co-workers, and family, Let me bring you up to date with what's been going on.  I don't usually share personal information like this but my family and I are asking for your help. On September 22nd, I received a call from my niece in Buffalo, NY informing me that my eldest son Sulaiman had a seizure. Not just one but several. He never had a history of this so of course, I'm concerned. I live in Texas and immediately scheduled a flight, to see after my son who has never had a serious illness in his 35 years of life. It's been over a month now and as you know, the bills don't stop. So I need financial assistance to pay utilities, the mortgage, and to cover some of these medical expenses.  My family has assisted with personal needs, food, and transportation. I am grateful for their help. In addition to the seizures, my son had, the antibiotics that were given while in the emergency room the first time caused a skin eruption that has left him with open wounds that look like 3rd-degree burns. This was after telling the staff he was allergic to sulfa and penicillin. Because of this, we have incurred additional expenses to help in healing his sores. I can only imagine the pain he is experiencing.  I pray every day for his healing and a good diagnosis. An open MRI has been scheduled. In the meantime, I have to fly back home to settle my affairs.  All of this is a lot to take in. A friend once told me that  "closed mouths, don't get fed"; so I'm opening up to ask for assistance. To add more stress to an already stressful situation, the house where my son is living is being sold and he has to move out. I never expected to have a medical emergency like this and you never know what you don't know until you go through it. The doctor has restricted Sulaiman from working for a year. Therefore; I started a GoFundMe account that has been created with a goal to cover the living, and medical expenses, until we can see our way clear to manage these costs on our own. I pray that whoever is reading this request will see it in their hearts to donate.  Thank you for reading this post and for your support. ✌️
