-URGENT Seven's Medical Fund

SEVEN DIAGNOSES/UPDATE –Seven has been diagnosed with a pyothorax. Pyothorax is an infection in the chest cavity caused by bacteria. The infection causes accumulation of fluid between the lungs and chest wall. This fluid can compress or scar the lung and reduce the patient’s ability to exchange oxygen. It can be very difficult to identify the cause of pyothorax. One common cause is a foreign substance, often a piece of plant material, which penetrates through the skin, or esophagus and into the chest cavity. In some cases, the cause is never determined. Seven was in very serious condition when he was admitted to hospital. He received intravenous fluids, pain medication, antibiotics, drugs to support his blood pressure, and a plasma transfusion. He was placed under general anesthesia for CT imaging which revealed an abscess between his diaphragm and heart. He underwent surgery, which involves opening his chest cavity to drain the infection, and remove any diseased tissue. Since his surgery on Friday night, Seven has been monitored 24-hours a day in the intensive care unit. He is receiving intravenous fluids, pain medication, antibiotics, and oxygen support. He has chest tubes in place to drain any excess fluid from his chest cavity. With his surgery behind him, the prognosis is good but treatment can be a long process, and we expect Seven to remain in the intensive care unit for a week or more. That being said his medical bills are astronomical – estimate is around $12,000.  Please note that as a family we've already incurred and paid for an additonal $7000 prior to Seven being admitted to Guelph.  We desperately need your donations every $1 helps!!!!.
Thank you so much for all of your support and generosity! XOXO
