She suffered a subdural hematoma (brain bleed) and has had 2 operations thus far, and nearly a week in the ICU.
Because we are abroad, we are having to pay *everything* up front, and can’t even hope that insurance will cover (some?) costs until after we return to the States.
Long story short, medical expenses alone will be well over $40,000 and could easily be in excess of $100K. (Crazy how a life can be measured by a dollar amount!) In addition to that, I have my 1 and a 1/2 year old son with me, and what turned into a short vacay is looking like it will be at least a month long stay, so I’m trying to cover lodging expenses out of pocket as well.
I’m tryjng not to be ashamed to ask for help, but in this case, I have no clue what else to do. I’m trying to remain strong to be a good mom to my son, and to be a source of positivity, healing, comfort and hope for my mother. That is hard to do when I have the accountants on me and the stress of dealing with finances. (Cue the violins.)
With that said, any and every dime you contribute is so very appreciated. I have no words at this moment to express the gratitude I already feel.
Thank you on behalf of my mother and my whole family.
