My boyfriend, Ryan, was diagnosed with Lemierre's Syndrome after being in the hospital since the 10th of December. This started as an ear infection, got into his blood stream, attacked his liver, gallbladder and lungs very severely. This syndrome is extremely rare and never seen by anyone here at OHSU. He was brought into the ER on the verge of death and has been on antibiotics and fluids since. He currently has a chest tube going into his left lung which is draining fluid that's holding him back from getting better, has an oxygen tank and two PICC lines in his left arm. Right arm is three times the size of his normal due to a massive blood clot in his jugular and also many small clots throughout his arm. Doctor's say he's going to be in the hospital for another 2-3 weeks before he's able to go home and will need to go to a rehabilitation facility due to losing his ability to walk. He's 21 years old, works at a sawmill and is otherwise healthy. We have an apartment together that I can't afford at the moment. I work a minimum wage job and I've been pulling doubles and taking extra shifts while also trying to be at the hospital as much as I can. This goal is for three months rent, our bills and the extensive medical bills he'll receive from being in the hospital for at least a month. Anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading our story.
