Hello my name is Renee and I’m in a bit of a situation. My daughter and Angel Raena got surgery on September 7th of this year and what was supposed to be a 24hr hospital stay turned into an absolute nightmare!! While here she ended up contracting rhinovirus so with the surgery being on the palate of her mouth, nose, and tongue she was already swollen so breathing was difficult and with the new found cold she could barely breathe at all. They placed Raena on the ventilator the second day we were here they said potentially it would be for just a few days until the swelling went down . Well I stayed with her all that day Friday the 9th and around 5pm went home to shower and get more clothes. 30 minutes after leaving I got a phone call stating my daughters heart had stopped. They did CPR for several minutes and brought her back to me . But after that things ended up getting worse , during the process of cpr from the amount of pressure being placed on her chest each of her lungs got a pneumothorax and both of her lungs were collapsing. They had to place a chest tube on each side and place her on paralytics so where her body didn’t even twitch for days and days. After 2 1/2 weeks of being on the ventilator she was able to breathe on her own and they placed her on 1.25 liters of oxygen. Now we are dealing with the withdrawal symptoms of her being on opioids and sedation medications. Why was supposed to be 24hrs has now turned into 3 weeks and projected home return date set out for at least another 2 weeks. My dilema is that I had planned on maybe being out for 2 weeks and now who knows for sure when we’ll get home. They have no where for me to store food so I’m literally buying meals 3 times a day unless someone brings me something. Bills are adding up and with me not working it’s not getting any better. My job as of September 7th said they would hold my position for a month only and that deadline is coming up next week. So now I’ll be out of a job too. Not to mention the fact that I’m pregnant and trying not to stress through all this. Honestly I’m not one to ask for help but at this time I need it and don’t know what else to do. I can’t go back to work and not be here for her she’s non verbal and has special needs I am her voice. Please help in anyway possible This recovery is taking much longer than expected and I’m trying not to lose everything over it.
