Well this month has been hell. On Thursday May 5 Jewel's umbilical hernia pop causing the fluid in her stomach to spray out like a fire hydrant. I rushed her to Franklin Square Hospital to have her transferred to John Hopkins so that her surgeon could handle this problem but instead Franklin Square emitted her to their Hospital instead of transferring her. They kept her for over eight days while the umbilical hernia leak this protein fluid out of her stomach I would never go to this Hospital again because their staff does not listen to what family members tell them finally was transferred to John Hopkins where they repaired the hernia and stopped the fluid from coming out. She still in the hospital recovering hopefully she'll come home this weekend which will be May 20th. Hopefully we are over one hurdle of getting her better her doctor said that she would be placed on the list of liver transplant. Now the waiting begins

Well here we go again. This month is nothing but running to John Hopkins for more test. She has to have her belly tapped again, they say every 4-6 weeks. Then more blood work, breast exam and female exam. Lord every month it's more of the same thing. I have been trying to get money by selling what I can but it's nowhere what we need. I get a small amount from retirement and social security just to try to pay for gas running place to place. I never had to plead to people for money but I am now. PLEASE HELP!!! God love you all for what ever you can give. Tammy
