Cherie' has no insurance, so I am asking for your financial support to help pay her medical bills for her recent surgery. Thank you!

Cherie' was in the hospital twice in November and December of 2011 due to a health issue that ended up requiring surgery. Having no insurance for her has caused a financial hardship on our family.

Cherie' had severe abdominal pain about mid-November, 2011. After seeing her doctor about this, he referred her to see an OB/GYN. This doctor told her she had severe infection and other female problems and that she needed to have a total Hysterectomy. The infection needed to be cleared up first, so she ended up in the hospital the week-end after Thanksgiving for four days. She went back into the hospital on Thursday, December 29th to have the surgery. All was going well for her by Friday afternoon, surprising all of the nurses and docotrs by how well she was doing. She was suppose to go home on Saturday.

However, there was a problem that arose: at 5:45 p.m. Friday evening her heart went into Atrial fibrilation. She was moved from the maternity floor to the Cardio surgical step down floor to get her heart back into normal rythm via iv medication. If it did not do so by morning, they were going to have to shock it back into rythm. But, by 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning, it did go back into a normal rythm on it's own. She started an oral medication that afternoon and was monitored for 24 hours to make sure is was going to work before she could go home. She was then realeased to go home Sunday afternoon, after another four days in the hospital.

Cherie' has been off work since late November and is not expected to return until mid-February. We have had to rely on just my income and help from friends. The money you donate will be used to pay for medical expenses and to help with daily living expenses. Please keep us in your prayers at this time! We appreciate so much all your financial support and prayers to help us stay strong through this trial.
