Lori,

Your situation is concerning in many ways.  Regardless of your financial situation, you need to followup with specialist.  Many Hospitals have charity funds to help in a situation like yours - if your financial position is precarious.  You need to investigate this option.  Also seek out your local "Welfare" office to see what programs and assistance for which you may be qualified.  Find an advocate such as a close friend, religious affiliation, power of attorney, etc to assist you in the event you can't make decisions.

I had to scramble when my wife (then my girlfiend and still my best friend) suffered a bleeding aneruyism.  We were young and invincible and had no plans in place like powers of attorney (medical and durable), wills, etc.  She did have insurance fortunately but with no power to act on her behalf there was little I could do.  But I found a way by tapping friends and resources to protect her and help her recover.  Today, 14 years later, she is now my wife and best friend, and I continue to make sure she has what she needs to continue her recovery and self reliance.  I pray you will follow my advice as quickly as possible.  Many of us never contemplate what "could" happen and fail to plan!
