It really breaks my heart to be typing this up. My dear lovely wife Stephanie was diagnosed with a brain tumor 4+ months ago, and after these few long months of waiting, Stephanie was finally to undergo surgery to remove the tumour on June 10th. We were told that the worst possible outcome would be brain fluid leakage that might require lumbar drain. We did not expect to lose the most important person in the family. My kids aged 4, 7 did not deserve to lose their mom.
Night of the nightmare. After a 12 hours surgery, doctor told me the surgery was a success, and that Stephanie would be transported to ICU for a day before moving on to regular room care. Between 9pm and 11:30pm, I stayed in the ICU unit with my wife, thinking everything was fine, while I could hear nurses watching and talking about the Toronto Raptors basketball game. I did not expect the nurse to come in after the basketball game finished, and tell me my wife's blood pressure is too high, and thats when they tried to wake Stephanie up... but she wouldn't wake.. and will never wake again... Few more emergency operations followed, but the end result is that, my 2 lovely sons will never be able to play with their mommy again. Stephanie is currently on life support and doctors have claimed 0% of recovery and are telling us they will pull the plug soon.
I'm beyond devastated, and I do not know how I can/will continue raising 2 young kids. I hope they could stop crying, but at the same time, I really hope they will forever keep mommy in their heart. I'm hoping some donations could help with the immediate future costs/fees.
