My adult daughter (35 years old) fell from her 5th-floor balcony suffering catastrophic injuries. She is fortunate to be alive. She has had surgery on her spine, femur, tibia to come still, has a concussion and brain damage (extent unknown yet as she, Brooke, was only recently extubated and could not manage to speak). In the last couple of days, Brooke is trying to speak and is very confused. She replies with yes or no, or very brief 2 or 3 words together. Dislocated and fractured one wrist. She has no one there to be with her. The trauma ward manager called me a couple of days ago to let me know that COVID rules are relaxed for designated visitors to the ward. I would love to go and be with Brooke. She needs me. I am on Ontario Disability and no longer have any extra earnings from working or savings. I do not have a line of credit to draw from. If I manage to get to Calgary, I need to pay for accommodation and my personal needs like food, bus/taxi fare. My daughter is at Foothills Medical Centre since March 18, 2021. Thank you, Ana
