Help support Ginny Grill

My Grandma is a hardworking lady when one day her life changed dramatically. What started as just a stomach ache ended with a large clot which blocked off her entire intestines and colon. She was airlifted to the U of Minnesota and after 10 days in ICU on breathing machines she was released. You would think the story got better here but this was just the beginning of her problems getting worse. 5 days after discharge her breathing was getting more difficult and pain worsening, she went to Rice Lake ER and they didn't think there was anything to worry about and sent her home. 2 days later things were progressively getting worse and she came back to the U of M and it was here she became septic and had a perforated bowel as a result of the clot. They rushed her into surgery not sure of the outcome. 4 hours later they came out and had to remove of foot of colon and unsure of whether they could reattach. 3 surgeries later and they were able to reattach it and close part of her stomach. As strong as she is she kept positive, fighting for good outcomes. Then a week after surgery another set back. She developed a leak a complication of surgery which causes all of her stomach contents to drain out of the wound in her abdomen. So what does this mean? Doctors hope that after a year they can go back in and attempt to repair it. The next year will involve constant wound care, Feedings through her vein and countless doctors appointments. Her first new car that she bought just prior to this occurrence has to be returned just to help make sure that a little more goes towards the medical needs and bills because she will be unable to return to work. She now has been moved to a Long term Acute hospital to try to get a better handle on things and work on rehabilitation. The road is long, but my grandma is strong and I know she will continue to fight this. I am asking for any help people are willing to donate to help her with her medical bills during this difficult time.
