The Triplett Family

Ten years ago at the age of thirty-eight my dad was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy. He's had many ups and downs throughout the last ten years. On November 8th, 2017 he was taken to the hospital by ambulance in critical condition. He was transferred to his heart doctor the next day. His kidneys were shutting down and he was retaining a lot of water. He was up and down throughout the week and always told us he was fine. On Thursday November 16th he went for a heart Cath to see what condition his heart was in. After his heart Cath my mom and I were told he was very sick and they were going to put in a tempory heart pump that was going to help make his heart work. After an hour a nurse came out and told us it went well that they were getting him set up and then we could see him. Once we went back to see him he started panicking and becuase of the heart pump they had to put a tube down his throat and we were told to leave that it would only take five minutes. The doctor came out and told us he was very sick and we needed to start calling family. About twenty minutes after that another doctor came out and said he only had a ten percent chance of making it through the night. He was taken up to the ICU and made comfortable. At 2:35am Novemebr 17th at the age of fourty-eight my dad took his last breath with his family by his side. My dad was a great man. He was a loving and fantastic husband, dad, grandpa, uncle, and an awesome brother. His sudden passing has left my mom without a way to pay for the bills and mortgage she has. Any help would be appreciated.
