Whilst my mum and dad were on holiday in Sicily my mum had a brain aneurism "bleed on the brain" she was rushed to hospital (nearest specialist hospital was 1hour away) whilst in hospital the doctors operated on her by going through her groin upto her brain to stop the bleed, but she was in a bad way, a few days after her operation my mum fell into a short coma, luckily she woke up the same day.
All this has happened in the last 7days.
She is not very responsive, she only wakes for 1 minute, every 5minutes, so we only have a short time frame to communicate with her, I got all our immediate family to send videos telling her to get well soon and she smiles or waves at them but then falls back to sleep.
Today she wasn't responsive at all but she knew we were there as she squeezed my dads hand-I think she was tired today?
We will continue to keep everyone updated but we are finding it hard to keep it all together.
Unfortunately the town my mum is in is like iraq, the place is a dive but the hospital she is in specialise in neurological injuries so its the best place for her right now. Luckily my dad found a lovely hotel in the middle of this disgusting place, the hotel is like a premier inn but slightly better, it has its own restaurant so my dad doesnt have to worry about going out in the rundown town to eat.
I am currently in Sicily with the support of my amazing wife ella, while my brother keeps our family garage open in the uk, once we return to the UK my brother will make arrangements to come see mum, owning 2 family run businesses we have to take it in turns to fly out here.
If anyone back home can please offer us some help, whether its to buy a coffee, help with flights, hotels, medical care and travel help for mum...... I would greatly appreciate it.
I dont believe in god, I believe in stubbornness, hard work and determination and my mum has all 3, she will not go quietly into the night, she will not give up and she will keep fighting, because she is a Souster!
It's not easy for us to ask for help.... but please can all our dear friends pull together and help us in this difficult time.
