My husband (Craig) fell ill back in Septmeber and has gradually gotten more sick. We have been in and out of the E.R. 9 times and to Queen City 10 times trying to find a diagonsis. Recently, he took a turn for the worse and went 20 days straight of constant vomiting; he wasn't even able to keep water down. Craig has lost 50 pounds after this episode.
After multiple CT Scans, an MRI and too many blood draws to count, we sought help from a specialist out of Portland, Oregon and brought his opinion to our primary physician. On 5/29/17 Spearfish Queen City Medical Center confirmed our hunch. My husband's gallbladder was working at 15% and we set a consultation date for surgery. Unfortunately, over the weekend Craig's gallbladder failed and we had to get emergency gallbladder surgery and his recovery so far is not going well.
I am a full-time waitress and a full-time student, while my husband is self employed and hasn't been able to work in months. Major medical insurance cost between 1,200 to 1,500 a month; which we cannot afford. In this rare instants we are reaching out for help and crowd funding seems to be our best bet. Any donation is appreciated. Thank you all in advance for your kindness and God bless!
