In July 2019 my wife of 35 years of age gave birth to our third child by way of premature c-section due to preeclampsia at 33 week.
Her condition was stable until 4 days after the procedure when her heart started to fail.
She was then admitted to wythenshawe critical care unit where she was put on a ventilator after receiving a balloon pump into her left ventricle chamber to do the work the heart could not.
The doctors said she was on a knife edge and that it could go either way, but after a few bumpy nights she started to get better and upon the consultants assessment they decided to wake her up, only to discover she had suffered a stroke whilst under.
This occurred through lack of blood flow to the right side of the brain which caused clotting to occur, which left the left side of my wife’s body immobile, thus adding insult to injury as my wife is left handed.
Within 4 weeks she was discharged from hospital with the ongoing at home treatment of physio therapy to regain the use of her left side.
I had to leave my job and become a carer for my wife and three children due to the huge demand it placed upon our family because of the devastations that occurred to my wife physically, therefore leaving my wife and children absolutely dependent upon daddy to be everything to everyone.
This left us at the mercy of the benefit system, which then left us at the mercy of the council because we were told our privately rented 2 bedroom flat was being sold and that we had to be out.
However the council came through with a property but as always it was completely gutted, outdated and in serious need of renovations which I just cannot afford, and with the COVID pandemic the physio therapist can no longer make home visits, therefore leaving my wife without the ability to progress further into being able to fully look after our now 1 year old son.
All this to say that a go fund me page would be really helpful right now in turning our council house into a liveable home, and have all my debts paid off as the benefits I receive just barely scrape us through.
My eldest daughter is 5 called Scarlet, my second daughter is 3 called Angel, and my son is 1 called Frank. My wife’s name is Sylwia and my name is Dean.
We are the McGintys, wishing you all the best and appreciation for whatever you may want to donate.
