An emotional mother of a 9-year-old boy from New Jersey has posted on social media that her son needs to go to the doctor after he started having chest pains and diarrhea.
The mother, who requested her name not be used to protect her son, wrote in a post on Twitter that she was at the doctor on Thursday and that he was having chest pain and diarrhea and was unable to eat.
The boy, who is still in the hospital, is in stable condition.
She posted a video on social mediashow Friday of her son standing on the operating table and saying he was sick.
She wrote on Twitter: “This is why my son needs a doctor.
We are so desperate that we have to go see a doctor.”
The mother said her son was in the ICU for three days.
The family said they are hoping to raise money to help the boy get the proper treatment for his chronic asthma.
“We just need your help,” the mother said in the video.
“I have not been able to get the medication.
I am hoping you will help.”
The video is not long enough to show what happened to the boy, but the mother wrote that she felt like she was “watching my child die.”
“I do not want my son to be in this condition.
I want my boy to live,” the woman said in a text message to ABC News.
