My six-year-old son, Leo, was hospitalized on 6/7/22 after a complication with a routine endoscopy for his eosinophilic esophagitis. He had a large hematoma (bruise) in his small intestine that went from one side of his body to the other. Since his hematoma blocked his small intestine, he had to have a tube in his nose that went into his stomach. We were just supposed to be waiting for the bruise to decrease in size so that he could start eating and drinking again. On 6/14/22 he went into anaphylaxis and after over an hour of CPR he passed away at 2:29 am on 6/15/22.
I am asking for help because I have not been able to work and I'm not sure when I will be able to work again. Short term disability only pays part of my wages, and I have 4 other kids to take care of as well. We are grieving, overwhelmed, and feeling hopeless. Any help we can get is greatly appreciated.
