Help for Sharon Miller

Hello, im creating a GoFundMe for my mother Sharon Miller. On February 16th my mom was experiencing unbearable back pains, as the pain continued to get worse she decided she needed to go to the hospital. while waiting to see a doctor she wasn't expecting the pain to be anything serious. After a few tests and speaking to the doctor the pain turned out to be much more serious then she was expecting it to be. She was informed that she had jaundice, multiple stones in her gallbladder and that one of the stones was stuck in her bile duct. Due to a previous surgery she had, it was going to make this surgery more challenging. After a few days in the hospital with multiple attempts and rejections to find a surgeon that would take on this challenging surgery, they finally found a doctor to do the procedure. After the procedure when we were hoping things would start to get better, they continued to take a turn for the worse. The surgery went well but new issues began to arise. She developed pancreatitis the day after surgery which caused extreme pain and sleepless nights. As well as pancreatitis, she went into renal and respiratory failure. A week went by her levels continued to fluctuate, she didn't appear to be any better. They decided to finally do another CT scan and noticed something was off. As she went through another procedure they realized one of the staples from the gallbladder removal had been stapled twice, which then caused an infected hole by her stomach. During the second procedure,  one of her lungs collapsed from all of the pressure in her stomach. She was on a breathing tube and is still on two draining tubes. Her family is doing everything they can to stay strong and support her. She is a part time bus driver and all of this time in the hospital means no income. Her at home expenses, as well as medical expenses are starting to add up. I'm doing the best to try to keep up with the expenses but just don't have enough to cover most of them. There is a possibility that she may have to attend rehab after her hospital release to regain her strength, making us uncertain of when she will even be coming back home. The longer she is out of work will leave more unpaid bills. This is a very stressful time for our family and I just want her to be able to focus on healing and not have to worry about bills. Any amount will help and any donation will be very much appreciated. Thank you.
