Organized by: Lori Murdock
Hi my name is Lori I'm 57 yrs old and am disabled. I take care of my mom who is 91 and living with me. Last 2 years ive had about 10 hospital stays and a spinal surgery. I was born with scoliosis. It has got worse. Two years ago I had a bad fall down a flight of steps where I broke two vertibre in my back. I had spine surgery. It took away sone of the pain but left my rt leg numb. Then last year on my birthday I was rushed to hospital for terrible pain. They found out I needed trauma surgery asap... my stomach was enlodged behind my heart. How did this happen? I had a hernia in my esophagus and it got worse and made a hole and my stomach traveled up my esophagus tube. I was seeing a GI specialist for years won't comment but have a new dr. So the surgery went great. About 6 months after surgery I went to hospital again and find out I have one of those superbugs "c-diff". Could have caught it in hospital they say hospitals are full of this disease I've never heard of. The medications I have to take for the c-diff are expensive and without them i would die. My hospital, ambulance, surgery,and rx are 25k. I'm on disability and cannot work. I need help. I pray every day I dont get sick again. I'm in bed most of the day. It's really sad. I was a hair stylist and doing great... till I fell and got sick. This is my story. I never ask for help but I feel the time has come to ask. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
