Hello, this situation grows worse by the day and has been ripping my family apart. Roughly 2 years ago we found out my wife’s mother has a failing heart and polyps forming in her lungs regularly. She hasn’t always been completely honest with us about her condition because she hasn’t wanted to upset my wife. Her pride also gets in her way as a Navy Veteran and strong independent woman who raised her children on her own for years. The problem has become our children are starting to see her decline via facetime. My wife has become angry due to her Stepfather and brother’s lack of care and treatment to her mother. They continually have her do the dishes, clean the house, and make the food. She was also the only person working for the past 2 years paying all the bills and making sure her husband does not go to prison for embezzling money by paying the restitution. This has caused her body great stress and last week 09-09-2023 she was told she may only have a maximum of 2 years even with a heart transplant.
When we received this news, it was like you could see the life drain from my wife as well as her mother. I want to be able to pack up our home here on the east coast and get my wife to Nevada to help assist her mother in her final years. The problem as a husband and father of 3 is that funds are lacking. I work hard every single day as a locksmith to provide but with increasing prices, taxes, and overall life, I cannot move or get my wife to be with her mother. I feel like a failure, I feel as though if I didn’t make the mistake of being forced to move once using our savings this could’ve been easy. I do not have family to help me as my father asks me to pay his mortgage and my grandmother even though she has money lectures me about not asking for help and to figure it out on my own.
I am not asking for hundreds or even tens of thousands of dollars I am just looking for enough to get my family to Nevada and essentially start over there. As I stated I am a locksmith, so I am able to find work just about anywhere in the country. $6,000 was the estimated cost and I am going to leave behind a lot of memories we have created in our home but as long as our family is together new memories are easy to make. Love is the strongest thing we can have, and I will fight to make sure my wife and kids get to spend this final time with a person they truly love. This will also give us a chance to make sure she eats well, rests, and get the proper information from the doctors and surgeons.
She flies to Palo Alto Veteran’s Hospital weekly and in October she will be getting a blood transfusion to hopefully prepare her for the transplant. If the transfusion fails, she will not be able to get the heart transplant and her time will become weeks or months. Her heart is only working at about 20% to 25% and blood is not flowing properly, and she also has conjoined valves that are causing issue as well.
Any help and support is deeply appreciated and I will cherish it for any amount. People are amazing when they come together and even without superheroes, the people out there who give or help another are the real heroes indeed.
