double by pass of 2 artery's..and go fund me
Permalink   
 


my mom had been having dizzy spells,head aches,to her blood pressure being to high,or to low.and chest pain since the last part of last year.but on a small scale,at that time..they started getting worse with each passing week/month..one doctor was saying,its her lungs.another was saying its her heart..it was kind of,like they was playing hot potato with her and her health,by tossing her back n forth.for i guess 3 to 4 months...one of her doctors finally set it up, where she has a oxygen concentration machine at home..one doctor set it up for her to have a cath,or what ever done,the other day.to see if it was/is anything to do with her heart. thats when we all learned that it's 2 artery's. one was at 75% blockage,and the other was at 95% blockage..that took place day before yesterday.so they decided to do open heart surgery.in which that'd take place in Houston tx..and keep her in the hospital just to keep a eye on her n all,untill she got transported to houston. that night,she went down hill.it looks like she was having,or did have a heart attack..i get a phone call from them around 4:50 yesterday morning,telling me to whats going on with her.so i got dressed and went to the hospital.just to find out things might be worse then they were letting on..and yes it was. it's between 6am and 7am by this time.they did what they could.but yet she still wasn't responsive from recovering from they used to put her under..they finally got her transported to houston and did the double open heart surgery..she made it through the surgery all right. and was still recovering,by i guess 8pm yesterday.so i came home. she's regained conciseness. and she's responding to what people are saying,in the different ways she can right now..she has tube(s) going down her throat and into her lungs,for drainage or what ever..and a oxygen mask over her mouth,to help out..she's still having some issues with her blood pressure. but not to bad. they'll send her up to a room once thats been dealt with..so i now have 2 worries.1st,is my mom recovering from that,in which it looks like she will.the other,is.will that send our medical expense's sky rocketing,big time? ...we already owe i dont know how much in medical bills,from previous medical expense's.but yet.this will send the bills on up.

i've started a go fund me account.in which,it'll be used to pay the medical expense's that we already have..pluss,with the way things look right now.we're gonna have more of them,then what we can pay.and because of this.any help that i receive. will be greatly appreciated very much..

doing some copy n paste.so if there's any repeat any here in this post..sorry..


i forget what its called.but they did a surgery where she has the hole in her throat so she can breath on her own.and her kidneys are failing.or has failed. in which she's not expected to live much longer..



1st of all thanks for concerns n all..
2nd..i got word about half way here,that her kidney is better.so they dont have to do anything about it,and all.at least for now.

I still cant help but wonder if she'll make it through this or not...

Their doing the needed surgery and recovery now.so it'll be a while before she's actually breathing on her own.
they've done a tracheotomy on her.so she can breath on her own. pluss her kidneys almost shut down.but they leveled out,and got better..my sister took pen and paper,in which she wrote out the alphabet. this allows our mom to communicate with us,by pointing to each letter,of each word..

i found out yesterday eve.that things went south for her,after i left the hospital the other day.the device in her throat,or what ever,that helps her breath.ended up with a blood clot.they had to do CPR and all on her.but yet.she pulled through alright..

This sounds like a very scary time for both of you, and I will keep you both in my prayers.
