This is not for me - my parents are in trouble. My mom is very ill

We lost mom on March 1st. She was in the hospital for three months most of it in intensive care. The hospital bills are astronomical, because of this we've still got the donation site up. The web address is:

On the night before Thanksgiving my mother was taken to a local hospital by ambulance for nausea and pain in her chest. The doctors inserted a main line cath into her neck so that they could start her on dialysis as her kidneys were shutting down, and attempted to insert a balloon pump for her heart. That day she had a massive heart attack. They immediately moved her to the DeBaky Heart Center at the Texas Medical Center and as soon as they felt she would survive it, a few days later they performed a triple bypass on her. She was very weak and was in that hospital for over three weeks. Every time they tried to move her out of ICU she would relapse and she would have to go back into critical care. Finally after several weeks of this, we spent Christmas with her in the ICU, they deemed her ready to be moved to a rehab center closer to home. This was a couple of weeks into January, by this time the hospital bills were reaching astronomical levels even with Medicare and insurance. In the meantime, my dad retired, after 40 years. Their insurance runs out at the end of January. Mom was in the rehab center for three days when she started having breathing problems, she was rushed back to the hospital by ambulance. At first they thought it was pneumonia and started treating her for that, they then found that her lungs were filling with fluid and that her heart was in a-fib, at this point she's been in ICU again for a week. They are doing dialysis on her on a daily basis, they surgically inserted a main line catherter, she was on a respirator for several days and then yesterday morning they cut into her throat and put in a trach tube. The doctors say that she has a very good chance at recovery but we have no idea how much longer she will be in the hospital. And when she does finally get home she is going to need skilled nursing care while she rehabilitates. If you could help us in any way we would be so appreciative. I want to give my mother every chance possible to pull through this. We still have the Christmas tree up with the presents under it so that when she comes home, however long that may take, we can celebrate it with her. Please help us do this, we love our parents so much and it's breaking our hearts to see them struggling financially at what should be a hapoy, carefree time of their lives. Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you in advance for any help.that you can offer.

What's on your heart and mind today?

 in response to Peter11...   Hi Peter, I am so sorry that i haven't gotten back with you. I haven't forgotten about you but my mother had a heart attack on thanksgiving and has had triple bypass surgery, just when we thought she was getting better her kidneys shut down and now aha and my father are on dialysis. On top of that her lungs keep filling with fluid and they can't figure out why. So now I am not only taking care of dad at home (they are divorced and live about 50 miles away from each other) now i am spending at least 5 days a week with mom at the hospital. We don't think she'll make it. As soon as I get a little time I will start looking for the equipment that you need for your dad. Again Im sorry and i will do everything I can to help.

What's on your heart and mind today?

My truck is on it's last tire. Butting it in the shop will cost me 1400. That I do NOT have. So, I was wondering if someone who lives in my area could help me out. If someone could kindly find a way to play mechanic, I of course, will find a way to pay for parts. Since my husband died in July, I haven't been able to find anyone that can help... I know that this is a lot to ask. Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

just praying

I don't know how I'm going to make it through the rest of this year. I feel like my whole world is crumbling around me. My husband of 20 years took his own life in july after he lost his job and was out of work for a couple of years, we lost our home, Social Security has told me I can get ssi, but not until February. In the meantime my mother has just had triple bypass surgery and I am doing my best to take care of a very sick, elderly relative. My truck has no tags, and I can't afford to put insurance on it to get them. I keep praying but it's as though God has turned his back on me. If it weren't for the fact that Pat has none else to look after him I would probably just follow my husband. I'm sorry. I know I'm rambling and I know everyone has there problems but I just don't know what to do. I really have no one to turn to. Thanks for listening.

I am a 47 year old woman. I have permanent disabilities, mental and physical. I am currently caring for an elderly relative with heart failure, kidney failure and various other health issues. My husband of 20 years committed suicide on July 20th, he was over half of our household income. I have been told by Social Security that I'm eligible for SSI, but I can't start collecting it until February because of a piece of property I have to s friend to pay off a debt. We are getting desperate! Any help would be appreciated. we're sinking fast here. If anyone could work on my truck it would be appreciated, I need it to take my dad to his appointments. I also have untreated diabetes.
