Soul Joel Presents: Robin’s Road to Recovery Comedy Show Fundraiser
Robin’s Daughter Desiree has hired 2 fellow Wagner College Alumni to help her raise money for her Mom Robin!
Hear Robin’s Story from Desiree:
As many of you may know, my mother, Robin Grove, was admitted to Sinai Hospital on April 26th to have heart valve replacement surgery. During the procedure, the doctor also found that she had hardening of the pericardium which also needed to be addressed. A hospital stay that typically lasts 5-7 days after this type of procedure has turned into a much longer ordeal.
My mom has been intubated three times since the surgery and now has a trach in place. She is receiving her nutrition intravenously through TPN, has an NG tube through her nose for her medication, and is currently on IV antibiotics. After the surgery, the doctors found that she has two blood clots in her radial arteries. When they tried to use blood thinners, she began to have gastrointestinal bleeding. They then conducted a colonoscopy and endoscopy to locate the cause of the bleeding and found two large ulcers in her colon. While all of this was being discovered, they recently placed her in an isolation room because they suspect she may also have Tuberculosis. Just when we think one thing is resolving, something else pops up. She continues to work with physical, occupational, and speech therapy. She’s not able to talk yet and communicates by writing.
