As everyone knows, my pawpaw, Joe "Bulldog" Edwards has been in and out of the hospital every month since October. He is a recovered Crack/Cocaine addict and has been clean for 9 years. After all of his bad decisions, he was diagnosed with Convestive Heart Failure, 3rd Stage Kidney Failure, Diabetes, Enlarged Prostrate Pancretitis, COPD.. And more down the line. Right now he is in the hospital because he has been peeing nothing but blood. The doctors told him he has a Urinary Tract Infection and many blood clots inside his bladder. The doctors put in 5 Catheters. My mawmaw (his wife) Deborah Edwards lost her managing job of 10 years, about 2 months ago. Right now they are living off of ONE income every month. It is hard for mawmaw to find another job, as much as she has applied to many jobs, no one is interested. From all of these hospital visits, they struggle to pay out of pocket for his prescription meds. Bulldog collects furniture and gives furniture away for FREE for everyone, whoever needs it, he has it for you. It is hard for him to lift furniture. He makes his money by throwing newspapers for Times News every night from 1:15am - about 7am. While Bulldog has done nothing but help everyone, I think it's time for people to start helping him also. Every dollar helps, we are just trying to raise money to help him. Please share , no matter how much you donate, we appreciate every amount! Thank you!

Ok so update on JoeBulldog Edwards is he is being admitted in the morning at Moses Cone so they can put a catheter in his neck to check his pressure on his heart and try to give him a medicine called Melrinone to try and wake up his kidneys and get his blood flowing to them. Right now his kidneys are too bad to give him a heart pump so this is to get his creatinine level below 2 because his is at 2.1. Prayers please that this works so they can put the heart pump in.

People have been asking for us to start this gofundme account back up, so here we are. I went to the Advanced Heart Failure Clinic @ Cone hospital today to talk about my 3rd heart doc surgery. The doctor said if I didn't have the surgery that I may live 6 months to a year. With the surgery that I can live another 4-5 years. The surgery will be to inform stall a pump in my heart. A tube would go in my left ventricular & go thru the pump into a tube in the top of my heart. Ail e would then be run across my stomach muscles to my right side where it would be connected to a external could trol box that run the pump. I will have 2 batteries that would wear under each arm. I got to go thru a battery of test tbefore I can get it. Cost about $500,000. Please pray for me & this whole situation please
