My hard working, amazing, best friend, soulmate, husband, father to our 3 kiddos, provider of our home and family Jaymon Skinner had fallen ill with pneumonia several weeks ago. He didn't go see a doctor for it when it started as we, my husband and I don't have medical (we couldn't afford the health plans offered to us).
Jaymon has been battling high blood pressure and untreated sleep apnea for several years (we payed out of pocket for his blood pressure meds and yearly physicals). Jaymon is a hard working man who doesn't ask for help, he works hard to provide for us (his family) and keep a roof over our heads, that's all he cared about.
Last Thursday (9-13-18) was the breaking point. He was fighting to breath, was/still is coughing and spitting large amounts of blood and had a serious lack of energy (complete exhaustion) that sent him to the doctor who took blood tests and an x-ray which confirmed more than just pneumonia. Jaymons heart was/is abnormally large, he was sent to the hospital for congestive heart failure. The hospital than saw his oxygen level was a step away from ICU (dangerously low) that they emergency traveled him to Harrison, My husband's heart was and is stressed to this day along with fighting a severe case of pneumonia. From what we gathered so far from the hospitals test, my husband lost function to part of his heart. He has an infection in a third of his right lung and a separate bacterial infection in his blood and his oxygen level goes down after a while of being off their oxygen tanks. He is definitely where he needs to be and the hospital is taking amazing care of him and helping him fight the infections and hopefully his oxygen will stabilize, along with regaining his heart function back that he lost which will take several life changes, dedication and less stress.
We are in need of help financially (Jaymon is asking for help) as he is unable to work and provide at this time and the medical bill is growing more and more every day. Please, please help ease some of this stress off him and our family. We need and want for him to get better and come home and his heart needs to relax. I don't know where else to turn, but we need help, anything helps, please share and help us.
Much love and thanks to you all.
