Staying United, Sticking together

This is incredibly hard to write right nowband with a heavy and broken heart I give you this.
To sooon, to sudden, and so unbelievable.  Gina has been my best friend for 30 years. She wa she first friend to ever walk into my life and the first friend to leave. There wasn’t a person out there whose lives she touched that isn’t affected deeply by this. Gina had been having stomach issues for months now.  Doctors months ago said she had GERD and to follow a strict diet which she did. Went into the hospital Monday night April 2nd. Tuesday night she had her Gallbladder removed. Wednesday morning had an endoscopy and found she had a gallstone in her bile duct.  With gallbladder removal there’s risk of pancreatitis, Gina got it SEVERLY. Her organs started to shut down so she was placed in the ICU where she couldnt get the help she so desperately needed. She was doing okay for the first 2 days, and then things just went down hill. Her body wasn’t responding to dialysis. Gina couldn’t afford to drop one single point in any measurement and come Saturday night within hours they told us to call anyone who would want to say goodbye to her.  So many people came. ....In and out they went. It made things even more scarier and hard on all of us who had been there to see but so thankful for all the support at a time where that’s all you can do and the Most profound impactment too.  We had a huge prayer circle of probably 20+ people yesterday, Gina was without a doubt loved incredibly. Please help support Ken. Gina and Ken have been together for 19 years. Gina was his LIFE! Please support her family whose big a beautiful and going through the worst time in their lives. Caitlin, Gina’s best friend for the last 10 years, they  eat sleep and breathe eachother, she’s need all the support she can get. And for me, I’m broken and need it as well. Please help support this family anyway you can. Her medical expenses are going to be unbearable and we all know in a time like this the LAST THING ANYONE Should ever worry about is money. Thank you all for all of the love, support, and prayers, keep them coming and hold your loved ones tight.
