My uncle, Bill Stewart was admitted to hospital on Friday August 18th with what was believed to be a bad case of food poisoning, but by Saturday morning he was in ICU while the doctors tried to figure out what was wrong with him. Mid-day Saturday they broke the news that he had a bacterial mass sitting behind his aortic valve which had started breaking down and pumping the bacteria into his blood stream. After many mixed updates from Saturday to Tuesday we got the news that even though he was needing less of his life support, he was bleeding into his brain and there was nothing they could do. On Tuesday August 22, at 11:45pm we said our final goodbye, and my uncle in his 39th year passed.
Before his admittance to hospital my uncle had just been let go from his employment due to relocation and was in the middle of a wrongful termination lawsuit and his wife was working part time. With five kids to care for and now with all the expenses that his passing has brought we are asking that if you can help, please do. Anything helps at a time like this and is much appreciated.
