What some of you may not know for Gloria, is that through a series of health complications, a common UTI is actually a life-threatening infection that has more than once, turned quickly into a kidney infection, which leads to a blood infection, and sepsis. Although sepsis has been fairly rare so far, it's still likely to happen again, and the kidney infections are an incredibly painful process that does irreparable damage to the only kidney she has left.
A few weeks ago, Gloria developed a UTI that we tried to treat at home without having to go for medical attention because we just couldn't afford it. About two days later, it was already rapidly progressing into a kidney infection, causing her extreme pain and sickness. Enough that we had to take her to the ER, regardless of cost, because we couldn't chance it getting worse and turning into a blood infection again.
Through some procedures and antibiotics, Gloria is on the path to recovery again, but we're very worried about the bill we have. In total, it was more than what we we're asking for, but if we can reach anywhere close to our goal, it would be a huge help in trying to cover our emergency and help with some of the stress of having to go through with this.
We appreciate any help we can get, and we're very thankful for the support system we have, and all of our friends and family. Feel free to reach out to us if need-be.
