THE STORY:

Donald Enos wrote -

I honestly suck at asking for things from other people but hope you will at least take a minute and read what my sister has been going through. She is a wonderful sister, great mother of three good kids, awesome grandmother of two happy toddlers, and loving wife to her husband Alan. They are a very proud family and would shoot me for asking for help but they truly need it. They are a humble family needing some community support, they have reached out for assistance to only be met with rejection. The medical bills are climbing. Below is some information which was shared with me. You may have seen on her Facebook posts that she was been having some pretty bad health issues which has forced her in and out of the hospital. I am not a doctor so I might have mixed things up a little, if my medical spelling isn’t correct don’t hold it against Brandy. She was always the smart one who did good in school. So I ask you skip only one evening out and donate that few dollars or cents to help cover some growing hospital costs. What’s going on with Brandy: 18 years ago my sister Brandy got sick with Postural Orthostatic Tachardis Syndrome (POTS). Her blood pressure drops drastically and my heart raises upon standing causing her to black out. She started blacking out frequently, having chronic fatigue, chronic migraines, and dizziness, along with many other debilitating symptoms causing her to have to use a wheelchair majority of the time. She need IV infusions 3x a week to help keep her blood volume up which stabilizes her blood pressure. She has had to have a port put in because her veins are failing. A home health nurse has to come 1-2 times a week to access her port and tend to any other needs Brandy may have at that time (draw labs, change dressings, etc). So 5 years ago she was diagnosed with Lupus at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. The Lupus causes a lot of pain throughout her entire body. This makes her more susceptible to infections due to a weakened immune system as well as everyday colds and flu we might get. Now 2 months ago she was diagnosed with type C. difficile after taking antibiotics. This required her to be hospitalized for 5 days on high doses of antibiotics because the C. difficile which had ended up spreading so far through her intestines when she was sent home. She now has to continue on 2 different kinds of antibiotics plus other medications which are very expensive. She was hospitalized again in excruciating pain, high fever, weakness and low blood pressure. She went into septic shock caused by the C. difficile infection. The hospital had to call in an infectious diseases doctor to help with testing her blood and found 3 positive infections in the blood as well as a 4th pathogen they'll be continuing to watch for the next couple months. One of the infections had also invaded her port so she had to go in for surgery to have it removed and have a temporary PICC line placed. She was in the hospital for 6 days on double doses of IV antibiotics. She developed pneumonia on her second day in the hospital this trip and when she was released from the hospital she was sent home with strong IV antibiotics 3x a day for 2-3 more weeks to get rid of the sepsis along with breathing treatments for pneumonia. After all this Brandy is still very strong and one of the bravest people I know and love. I am hoping that you will over the next few weeks help me help her raise some money to offset the growing hospital bills her family is incurring. Thanks for taking time to read this and I hope that even if you can’t spare a dime take time to share this with others so that might be able to also send prayer, hope and joy Brandy’s way. Don
