3 weeks ago devastation hit once again. My dad woke up in the early morning hours and was not feeling well. Come early evening he had went to the restroom and found nothing but blood had come out. He was scared so my mom rushed him to the hospital, as soon as they saw him the brought him back right away and within 20 mins he was getting his first blood transfusion. They admitted him to the ICU unit because he was losing blood faster than they could replace it. He had over 10 transfusions in the 6 days he was there. His GI doctor promised my dad he would find the source of the bleed which he did. He fixed the issue and that same day his symptoms started to subside. Here we are again my dad is in the hospital with the same symptoms. He is receiving his first but probably not his last transfusion for this stay. My dad is scared but of course trys to stay strong for everyone else.
My dad is self employed, he has not been able to work in over 3 weeks. He is the most selfless human being there is. He has never asked for a hand out. He has worked his whole life and has always put everyone else before himself.
I am writing this because tonight when I went to see him he was emotional when he started talking to me about not being able to work. It takes him a lot to open up about financials but this has him worried because he doesn't know how much longer he will be out of work. If you are financially able we would be so grateful for any donation.
We thank you for the donations, prayers, and the gift of blood donations (without those he wouldn't be here).
