My god, that’s horrifying. What happened??? I assume with the blood pressure mention she must need a heart transplant?
Wishing you and your wife the best and will pray for your family.

It takes time to sell games, with the wife in such a perilous situation taking care of the 3 year old and managing the whole hospitalization while probably working isn’t easy.

Price them to move & trust me they’ll be gone by end of weekend & you’ll have a pillowcase of cash.

Easier said then done.

When you are knee deep in catastrophe. Sometimes you are just trying to make it to tomorrow.

Easy to have answers when you are outside looking in.

I unfortunately have been on that side of things & sold my only game cheap to financially make ends meet. Did I like it no but you gotta do what is necessary sometimes. Prayers.

I have been too. That is why I know that some days you just want to get to tomorrow. It can be hard to do anything constructive to better your situation.

Wow thank you all so much. I cant believe the support from this wonderful group.from the bottom of my heart thank you so much and yes my games will definitely be sold if she doesn't progress anymore as I will be a single dad . I have already let my Twilight zone go for dirt cheap as I absolutely had too. Luckily these games I still have are what's keeping my sanity at this moment and ofcourse my wonderful daughter

They will not even consider the transplant or remove the ventilator until she wakes up. They have tried twice so hopefully tomorrow she will come back and then we can start this long but absolutely necessary process

Update on my wife. They are still waiting on her to fully wake up before pulling ventilator out. I was with her and she followed 3 commands. Open your eyes, squeeze my hand ,and move your tongue. So it shouldn't be too long before she can start breathing on her own again. the dr came in and told me she still has a long road to recovery before we can even consider a transplant as she is still so critically ill.

Just got some amazing news. They just removed the ventilator and breathing tube and steph was talking. She is still so very confused but remembered me talking to her yesterday. The dr informed me that this was our only obstacle to getting her better as the transplant team was waiting for the the life support to end and now they can really start helping Stephie heal now.
