Before I begin, I would like to thank you for choosing to read my post. That in itself makes me feel grateful.
Back in June of this year, I was admitted into the hospital with Bells Palsy. The entire left side of my face was completely paralyzed. Due to my Blood pressure being so high, they decided to have an MRI done for neurological concerns. That day I was also diagnosed with a Meningioma Brain Tumor. The placement of the tumor created a few concerns because the area was where the blood drains, and then gets redistributed.
After meeting with the surgeon after my second MRI, it was determined that I would need surgery sooner than later. The tumor was blocking blood flow and if I waited any longer the outcome could have been worse. So, on September 15th I went in for a 5 hour surgery. The tumor was successful removed! Hearing the news was amazing; however, I woke up from surgery not being able to move my legs, feet, and toes. The surgery caused brain swelling preventing full motor skills. I was devastated. I never experienced anything like this before. Sitting in bed all day definitely didn’t help my situation at all. I prayed every day that I could walk soon and get out of that damn hospital. After 1 week I was discharged and sent to a rehabilitation hospital where I started to walk again after a week! I put everything I had into getting better and going back to normal life.
I was released from that hospital after a week, but was told by the surgeon that I would need to stay out of work for another month. With me being out of work and my husband missing hours to be with me through this process, we fell behind on our bills and mortgage. We just sold one of our 2 cars just to make the mortgage payment. I don’t want to lose my home because of this. My 5 year old son deserved to live in a nice home and go to a good school.
I am open to any amount of donation you feel is right in your heart. I am hoping to raise up to $5,000 but I am willing to take anything.
Thank you again for reading my post. It means a lot to me.
