Our beloved Tata has been unable to walk for the past month. The issue was sudden, and on Friday this last week after an emergency MRI she was rushed into surgery on Saturday. They found a lesion/mass on her vertebrae causing the paralysis in her legs and they needed to operate quick.
She survived the 6+ hour surgery, recovering at Hackensack hospital with great care and we will know more soon. But as you all know Tata has been here providing the best care to my and other families in order to send money home to the Philippines to take care of hers.
She is the proud mom of 4 grown kids and grandma a bunch times over. Her dream was to retire in the next few years, return home and be reunited with her family (who she hasn't seen many in person for way too many years to count).
While we don't know the full diagnosis yet, she can't walk... yet! And medical bills are large here in the US especially without insurance, plus she has basic bills to pay and I desperately want Tata to get the peace of mind she needs to heal.
I always joke that she's the best wife I've ever had. But the reality is that she is the best friend I've ever had. I hired her to take care of Mila, and she wound up taking care of me too. No questions asked :) I hope you all will help me in raising funds for Tata so she can continue to get the care she deserves.
Love to you all,
