Services And More For My Dear Wife And Family

Today was a very sad day as I lost my wife Trina who has given me a very beautiful son and she meant the world to us. My 4yr old son Zachary loves his mommy to the earth and back and I'm unsure how or if he will ever understand it given his condition of autism but I know at some point he's gonna ask where she is and I'm very nervous about how I'm going to explain it. My wife Trina was diagnosed with peripartum cardiomyothapy during the birth of my son in 2015 which is basically a heart disease during pregnancy which makes it difficult for the heart to pump blood to the rest of the body. For 4 long years now she has fought through the days of heart medications daily to keep the fluid off and to keep her going strong. I cannot tell you how strong she has been throughout the years to live through the good and bad days the best she possibly can. She recently caught a cold which landed her in the Baptist Hospital here in Pensacola, Fl and things went downhill very quickly. One minute I was talking with her and hours later the doctors decided to put her on a breathing tube due to severe breathing issues and how much fluid they found out she had retained. Her ejection fraction has always been about a 20 and when they checked it today it had dropped to 12 which means her heart was barely pumping. After several updates I got the worse news a husband could ever receive that her blood pressure dropped too low after a procedure and they tried everything they could and that she did not make it. Emotionally, physically mentally and financially I was not ready for this. Not only did my son and I lose someone so close to us but we also have been put in a very tough situation so suddenly due to very low finances for services and living expenses. I worked a law enforcement job for 4yrs and due to traumatic experiences on the job I had no choice but to take a long term leave and apply for disability in which I'm still currently in the process of. My wife and I have a home that we owe on and we were living off the little amount we had to get by. Now that my wife has passed I have no idea what were gonna do and ask for any possible donation anyone can give.  The hospital has given me a list of services in our area and I would like to provide my wife with a service if I can. I will be using any donations for her services and basically to just help my son and I get by until I receive my disability.
