My son, Jared, is in hospital.

YOur Ruedeman guys. This is our family. Jared and Michelle on the right. Brent on the left, my brother in the middle. Assorted children. Jared looks good here but not very well, now. He passed out a few weeks ago and went to the hospital.They discharged him and said, he had anxiety. Last week, he was there ,again. This time, after multiple tests, they discovered he has 40% ejection fraction of his heart. Also, his "cerebral tonsils" are sitting too far down and interfering with his spinal fluid. His symptoms were intermittent but now they're constant. Jared has been having blackouts, passing out, his hands and feet are numb with no feeling. He gets extremely red in the face and sweats profusely. He's having extreme headaches. He's in constant pain, seeing spots and can barely stand. When he does, he can't breath and starts to pass out. Now, he's at Tampa General and they're doing more tests. We're all praying they figure this out and heal him. They also found out he has Mercer from the other hospital. We have no idea what Jared is facing or how long. He's a hardworking guy. He's a welder and cannot work, drive or basically function, while he's like this. If he doesn't work, he doesn't get paid. He just caught their bills up after the first time, in hospital. Now, he's two months behind on his rent and the landlord is wanting her money. I never thought, I would be on here. This is my son and I would do anything for him. He's a really good guy. A lot of you know us. Especially, my boys. He has insurance but the copays are very high. If you can see your way to contribute anything  at all, we will be ever so grateful. I am so worried.
Thank you for listening. 
Diane Margait, Mom
