Mother is in M.i.c.u - I want to be there for her.

The picture above is my mother who is currently in M.I.C.U. at Huntsville Hospital in Huntsville, Alabama. I, Thomas Gigandet am her last born son and I work as a non commissioned security officer here in Big Spring, Tx. Right now my financial situation is tight and I have no absolute way to get to my mother in Huntsville, Alabama.

My mother had a heart attack on 10/8/2020 while she lived at her Sister's house. My mother fell unconscious and wasnt breathing for at least 15 minutes until EMS arrived and resuscitated her.

I called Huntsville Hospital last night to get information on my mother's condition and as of right now her heart and lungs are working. But, I am awaiting her neurological analysis and I was told after 3 minutes of no oxygen, cells begin to die in the body. So, I am gravely fearful for my mother's life and I really want to be there at her side when she needs me the most. I would pay for all the costs myself if I could, but, I cant even with my job as a security officer.

My mother loved me with all her heart and I know she would want me there at her side. My life has been stressful in my 30 years if life.  But, nothing can compare to the fear and stress that I feel right now. I haven't seen my mother after she left Texas to go home and I dont want that to be the last time I see her.

Thank you all,
Thomas Gigandet
