One week ago it had gotten so bad that she started coughing up blood and that was time again to go to the hospital! Sadly within a short time frame the doctors after taking endless tests, came in the room to share the life shocking news!
Toni was basically septic and could die if not treated successfully and her body would accept the 6-8 week needed treatment, otherwise they will have to do heart surgery! You see the infection has spread to her heart, bloodstream, lungs, and kidneys!
Toni hasn't even got to enjoy life, she's only 20 years old and in the battle of lifetime! She's now been in the hospital for a week and she's spent most of that time in the ICU/which is called SICU where we live!
I have a brain tumor and fibromyalgia and have been sick since 2007! I've done the best I can to be the best Mom for my daughter, but sadly here where we live if your over the age of 18 you no longer have insurance beyond family planning! The stress has aggravated my health so badly it's been so hard to get from month to month and watching your young child's life deteriorate right before your eyes!
Every blood work they have done has come back with the infection still positive : so the antibiotics are not killing it off yet! Until the blood work comes back with the infection negative they can't start counting the 6-8 weeks needed for treatment to kill it completely and body able to function on the road to recovery!
BUT if the tests keeps coming back positive for a certain amount of time & or her health continues to deteriorate : heart surgery is her only option! That could cost $10's of $1000's that sadly neither of us have right now! And with my health failing also from the stress it's been hard to do much of anything! I've spent so much for her medical over the months that we both need medical grade supplements also b/c we're seriously low on a lot of vitamin levels!!
Because of my type of brain tumor the meds I have to be on for the rest of my life depletes my vitamins and so I have to take 4 times the amount of a regular person and that can become so expensive! And then with Toni's infection attacking her heart, bloodstream, lungs, and kidney's she seriously needs proper vitamins that I know can get into her bloodstream at 96% absorption rate!! They are giving her plenty of vitamins while she's in the hospital but sadly the infection keeps eating at so much! They are pumping her so full of so many things that I know she seriously needs the vitamins it's taken me most of my fight with my brain tumor to finally find that helps heal the body!!
Can you please help me to be able to afford the medication needed to maybe help this blood work come back negative and help us to not have to worry about this medical bills when she comes home.....if she comes home.....if she beats this horrible battle of basically being septic right now!! We're praying she doesn't have to have the heart surgery, but right now it's something that we're scared might happen!!
I'm praying she beats this battle because so many have died from what she's going threw right now!!
Thank you for helping in anyway you can, we thank you for the love and kindness in helping this single Mom help fight for her daughter's life!
