The holiday season is upon us a time of joy. But I moved here yet sadly not everyone feels like celebrating sometimes it's hard to make it through the holidays and sometimes you just need a helping hand. And that's where we come. The idea behind. Freddie will beat them all between the cracks in and so we things can do real and otherwise. Perfect life. So Jake sure in this letter with me from ladies that my name's Jan. And married had two daughters ages three and seven. This past September I took my husband to the emergency room because I believed he was having a stroke. It turned out he had a very large tumor in the middle of his brain. Seven centimeters by four centimeters sits between the two lobes. It's a benign tumor. This really taken a hole in my husband. And he's gonna blur since we found out he had that surgery almost immediately before surgery you'd hardly know anything was wrong. He was completely normal aside from headaches and anxiety. The surgeon was not able to get the whole tumors so we're waiting on the next course of action. Even if it's benign tumor with people. They don't understand is you. You know it's still one body inside. Your head and when you open up your skull and anytime you in size brain tissue. The cutting connections you're cutting a lot depending on where you were working on. And having watched my father go through brain surgery. It change. When you and you know all the things with brain injuries and loan growth. It in in it like you said any foreign object to anything in the brain. Did it. He's in the icu for almost a month. Then transferred. To a long term acute hospital for three weeks. He's been doing therapy at a rehab hospital to gain back mobility but because of the swelling location the tumor may be sometime misuse and what we've seen significant improvement. Talking about learning speech again you're talking about learning credit for the damage. Will be to walk again fine motor skills. And currently working all the hours I can't but the bills don't stop coming in. It is possible he come home the next few weeks. But I'm nervous for a future in our girls in mr. daddy so much. One day I left was perfect. The next day the whole world was turned upside down. We are so very grateful my husband has survived and is getting second chance at life but the worry about what the future thanks to contend in my letter. Think about that. You know what's happening in that family right now everything's perfect. He was a phone tech 38 years old she's a restaurant servers had two beautiful little kids that are perfectly healthy Christmas is almost here. Three years old seven years old. Little kid does have the ability to understand. What's happening with the father Dave snow dad's not there. And it's scary and then when they go see dad that's not going to be the same as he was now hopefully the luck he will be the two days now. And then. Reality of everything else comes crashing and you have a mortgage to pay your rent you have electricity you have gas you have. Who watched the kids but what happens now. About what happens when December 25 at 7 AM. And those kids wake them. It's really scary thing and think about the idea one day big ordeal brain tumor. And again denying these incredible but it's still a foreign object putting pressure on the inside of grain and to. She struck the kids opportunity we shouldn't. That's led the timing was Crittenton. Jenny it's Johnny get on the radio was okay. So. This letter for a couple days which I do to connect review. I am Toby about what happened with your husband he he sent to a text message in September. And it was just gibberish. It was. It's scary being. Network got a message that with a weekly. Words and not exactly. And he called me I learned that it earned her law say. My picture and how common in cheek but it didn't seem like it struck that you're having early action to. That you can I can't hurt apoplectic at home at work about twenty minutes late. And Carol. And I at home. You know he's way. And accurately the year and they are coming up. At the work etiquette that I can meet and talk. Oh yeah that sounds like your mannerisms happening right there. Any. Stroke. Because you know that. Person. And so we went emergency room. And that. They get a cat scan. Almost immediately. And they. Really really. Really a great. It's like it's well mean you know. It's not real. In the. Well. We. Don't you don't know what. The brain tumor consists of you just know there's a Manhattan. Munich with your brain you counts so it was what's scary. A quirky itself out of it IQ you talked to him about you know what's going on to she has no light. And so in that moment right there. I had to make medical decisions on my mark Antony I don't know arguing I'm not a doctor Eric I'm in the medical. And so you know making an Iraq that does not only ban on my mind you know and my feeling like I am I speaking of pitching correctly. It blaming things that regular. They get of course it to somebody who loved he's the father of children. And in in one day it goes from normal to I don't know if this person will be here. And yet. So so of course they didn't schedule and immediately. Her surgery. I know baking in the week. Ticket that give the particulate doing at fat I'm why it was then explain. That they gave them. A fairly calm inflation down. Communicate and about a week before after they wanna information Yucatan before they just went and. So at this point you'd do until you girls what's going on with dad Ortiz he's not well but he'll be back. Well we didn't come out and eating. Because we get it now landed and they can't think at 37 understand that no matter what she's so. I don't want it it got what I would not at all. And you know about how we told them. It's about time he was in the icu he gets through the surgery how long was the surgery. With thirteen hours. And a lot Allard. They called about once every couple of hours in Hungary and ensuing great week. And then not lacked power game and they called and I knew something was wrong. Get your opponent chipping and light the cauldron. He had you know the surgery the doctor will be in the top. Ten. My whole world just collapse I think you know what they reconcile. And so they told that his brain had just started swelling so act rapidly. I think that the surgery immediately. Stabilize. And then that was about. Three weeks I see you being able. Fortunately he doesn't remember any about partly. It's horrible I've seen and I've been that neurological icu it is. It is terrifying. Extremely I don't even remember sleeping I don't think it's. So this whole time you're you're trying to wrap. At around what your responsibilities are men making the right decisions. The demands in my taken care of my kids and I know these bills are coming in. I gotta put them to decide. Were you get you catch a break they at least they know petition they took at that point was benign. Which is a huge break she. Doesn't mean that it was. Over no because he didn't get it all and now they don't know it'll go back to them listen I understand fully it's a foreign object inside your brain is whether non answer it's still incredibly dangerous. And so now a big twelve Cuba it's gonna be chemo or read the excellent time to go through radiation to. We're doing radiation. And that's certain relief. He was stolen eagle putt he never got another MRI after surgery just chitchat and and attacking showed whereas if you're fine and a little but the solution for.
