My mother started this
year in a hospital bed.She was sweating profusely at night , lost 60% of her body weight and is having intensive pain on her lungs , spine and rib cage area .After a lot of cutting and probing the doctors found something suspicious on her lungs The doctor took me aside sited me down and told me of his suspicions He asked me to sign the papers for the biopsy to be done since it was in the worst possible position on the lungs in a way between the spine the heart which made the whole ordeal that much more complicated and dangerous .I never in my life felt as conflicted and scared as in that moment From one side if the biopsy was not done she would face certain death and the amount of pain she is facing is unbearable on the other side if something went wrong during the exam ....I thought it through and came to the conclusion that the doctor was right either way I would loose her The biopsy at least left me with a silver of hope of ending this nightmare. I don't want to lose my mother she is the most precious person in my world and I cannot stand to see her in that amount of pain .The doctor prescribed her tramadol a drug to fight off the pain but that doesn't work and now is coming down to the heavy stuff... is a skin patch that is called Duragesic it has to be changed every 72 hours and the cost just adds up On top of it there are the bills of the tests done by the hospital. I honestly do not know what to do... Now she needs constant care and mostly my presence to calm down her fears and not let her alone to face this I have to cut down the hours at my job in order to stay with her because there is a possibility this is the last time I have with her and I am not ready to lose her She is too young for this , 57 years old is too young ...I m not saying that there is a right age to face this but is just so unfair and unexpected .I am asking your help because I have nowhere else to turn to , is just the two of us and I knocked in every other door I could possibly knock this is our last chance . I cannot afford her hospital bills and pain medicine any more all by myself and I cannot see her suffering like that and do nothing. I am fully aware that no one could possibly help me with the full amount of money I need so please if you can help me with at least the most immediate needs If somebody would help I would really appreciate it.
