Guy’s Cardiac Procedure.

About 8 years ago, I was diagnosed with a condition called “Arterial Flutter”. It concerns uneven blood flow in your Aortal chamber. I was given medication and it returned to normal. After a series of unusual and scary events this past May/June, I was forced to see my doctors again. It turns out that the medication that was prescribed 8 years ago was no longer working. I was then prescribed stronger medication plus and additional one. My cardiologist suggested to have a minimal evasive procedure called an “ ablation”. It’s where they thread a radiowave fiber optic through the veins in my arm then to the aortal chamber where scar tissue is created thus evening out the blood flow. I was told that this procedure is done quite often and in fact, I should be home that very night. The reason that I’m creating this Go Fund Me page is that most of you know, I’m the sole caregiver to my elderly mother (92). She had been hospitalized last year after breaking her hip. She has regained about 75% movement but needs constant care. I quit my job last October and started to driver for Uber. This affords me the opportunity to be very flexible with my schedule and to be here for her. With that flexibility comes with no insurance, so I pay out of pocket for any doctors visits I might need. Driving Uber, pays well enough to keep the bills paid etc but not enough to put out medical expenses. I’m slightly embarrassed to ask for help, I’m not the type but now I’m in real need. Please, if you don’t agree with what I’m doing, I understand your position but please do not comment negatively to me or others. Trust me, this is not easy for me. Sometimes we need to look beyond the smile, because we don’t know what’s happening on the inside. I’m thanking all of you in advance for any generosity shown.
