Sadly, our mother took a turn, just the day before she was supposed to taking off the vent, she started to bleed again. Unfortunately, and with deep sorrow, our mom passed away. After such a fight it is incredibly sad she didn't win this fight. We had her funeral on Monday, and all the funds here will be used to pay for that. We don't have much money, and she didn't either, but we wanted to make sure her send-off represented the person she was. We currently have 50% with this fundraiser to pay for the costs. So, any help you can afford is much appreciated.
Stephanie Lupinski has had a rough go through 2020. A few months ago, you may know she went through a major brain aneurysm. The odds were not good. But she beat them.. She was making a full recovery, but a couple of months post-surgery, she started losing lots of blood. 2 weeks ago, she went into the hospital, they thought it may be a colon polyp. They removed it. Sent her home and an hour later, the blood came back.. and a lot.. She was airlifted back to the hospital. The hospital kept looking for the problem and decided to remove part of her colon. She made it through the surgery, blood was holding, but she got weaker, started to get confused, had cardiac issues, then became unresponsive. She developed sepsis from the colon surgery, and for days, her body was fighting dead tissue, which delivered poison all through the body.. They called us on Sunday and said its end of life care now. Her son Kristian and daughter Shannah drove manically to the hospital to meet with the surgeon. He said, 100% she would die if he didn't do the surgery, 99.9% she would die in surgery. We took that .01% and she made it through. The odds were not good..but she beat them.. Over a couple of days, she wasn't waking up.. So they did CT scan.. She had a catastrophic stroke. Her right side of the brain was severely damaged, The said she wouldn't wake up, and she wouldn't respond. She had a 0% chance to ever do so.. The odds were not good.. But watch the video - and you tell me? She beat the odds. Now, we need to get her the best recovery help possible. The best therapies, the best we can possibly do with all the resources we can provide and that's where you come in. The brain is amazing, the mind and soul can do incredible things, especially with the right care! 100% of these funds will go to getting her the best care possible. And if you know her, or if you know one of her kids, or one of her 'adopted' kids, you know the type of woman my mother is! She is filled with love and has so much more to give. More than ever, she needs everyone to pour good energy into the universe and chip in a few bucks to help her get the best possible treatments on this extremely long and difficult journey.
We are aiming for 50,000, which of course is ambitious, but after many discussions over the last week, this is what we need to get her the best care possible here in Michigan.
Help us, help my mom.. So, she can beat the odds again!
