My wish for you

On Tuesday morning, October 3rd 2017, my mother April Lowe was sitting outside enjoying her morning coffee with her boyfriend. When one minute later she had a random sharp pain behind her eye, so she went to lay down because it was causing so much pain. 2 minutes went by, and she went unconscious! Her boyfriend immediately called 911 and off to the hospital she went. The doctor's did a CT scan and that's when they found the aneurysm! The aneurysm had ruptured and caused major bleeding in the brain. It was a cerebral brain aneurysm which also caused SAH.  (suberachnoid hemmorage which is a type of stroke)  . Most do not survive this, and if they do, most suffer psychological and physical disabilities. After the CT scan,  they immideately induced her into a coma and performed 2 major brain surgerys to stop the bleeding, and performed a "coiling" procedure to prevent future blood flow into the weakened area.  She was in ICU and unresponsive for a couple of days. My mother has NO medical insurance and faces a VERY very long road of recovery. She is not going to be able to work for months! (If she ever can again)    My mother and her boyfriend work 6 days a week to try and live their dream life in Florida. Without her income it's going to be tough!!  She has 3 children and 2 grandchildren that she had planned on seeing in MN in 2 weeks. That is no longer going to happen for her. As her grandson and newest granddaughter are her world!  They need all the help they can get right now as times are going to be very tough for the both of them! Also, (when it rains it pours) when we took her car down to see her, Someone backed into it and damaged her tail light and bumper. That person left no note and cameras were not able to see. The following day, we took her car down again and her transmission blew.  That is not the kind of stress she needs right now! She needs to concentrate on getting better, not the medical bills that they are already trying to get, and her broken down car! My goal and wish for her is to keep her dreams big and her worries small!!! My mother and her boyfriend need any help you can give!! She is a WONDERFUL person and anyone that knows her knows she would do the SAME for anyone else!!! Thank you so much and god bless!!!
