I’d like to take a moment to tell you about my son. My son has been in and out of Trident Medical Center and Summerville Medical for kidney and heart disease. I took him in to Summerville on Oct 16th and while there he suffered a mini heart attack. Then on Friday Oct 20th his heart stopped and it took them 12 minutes to get it restarted. Since then he has been kept unconscious with sedatives to give him a chance to recover. After leaving the hospital, he will need to go to a physical rehab center where he can get 24 hour care. Once he is allowed to come home, he will need to have a nurse come in.
In all, he has been hospitalized 5 or 6 times in the last three months and I have been told he can never work again because of his diseased heart.
He had to quit working 4 months ago and I am told he will never be able to work again because his heart is too weak. I am on disability and have no extra money to help him out with. I can cover the household bills but no more than that.
He can’t get Medicaid without first getting SSI disability and that takes up to two years in South Carolina.
The money raised will go to expenses he incurs and for medicine and any equipment and any medical care he might need.
Please help and keep him in your prayers. No parent should ever outlive their children.
