I am asking for help for my brother Mike Eslick.  He recently unexpectedly lost his leg.  He is in ICU right now but he will need help with a prosthetic leg and other expenses mounting up.  He has a long road to recover and will not be able to work for I don't know how long.  He is a proud person and would never ask for help so I am doing it for him.  Please help us support Mike and Cathy thru this hard long road ahead of them.  Anything thing will help.  thank you

It has been a bumpy last 4 months, Mike has been hospitalized 2 times since January with double pneumonia and the last time they found a small hole in the lower lobe of his left lung and which was causing his lungs to fill with blood, he had a minor surgery to drain the blood and attempt to repair the hole, it was unsuccessful and they decided to put him on several strong antibiotics and wait to see if the hole would seal, thank God, so far it has.
So when we got Mike home we noticed the shower we just had remodeled again was leaking through the kitchen ceiling, again! So we called the contractor and he ended up getting upset and refused to stand by his work, he did however agree to have his son another contractor that works under him, come over to attempt to rectify the mistake. He showed up and ripped the shower seat top of and then came downstairs to tell us that he was going to pour cement over it and if I wanted anything else I would have to do the work myself or get someone else, we explained that Mike couldn’t sit on a concrete seat because of safety and comfort reasons obviously and we just wanted him to replace the tile that we had purchased. He proceeded to get irate, yelling and saying he didn’t want the job anyway and Mike told him to stop yelling in our home and at his wife and the contractor said he would just get his tools and leave, which he did after breaking some of our personal items and left us with an unusable shower for Mike. We are now in the process of yet again on this journey picking up the pieces and trying to work through this. If you can help with recommendations or anything it would greatly be appreciated.

Update on Mikey.... he got fitted for his prosthetic for the second time and this one fits a lot better. We go in Friday for the final fitting and we are just one step closer on the road to recovery. We just want to say thank you to everyone that has donated, it has been such a blessing and helped us so much. With all the doctors appointments and medications and extra costs and with me being the only one able to work funds are tight and now we have to pay the deductible for his leg. I believe in the power of prayer and I know that somehow we will make it. Thank you so much for all the support, love prayers, donations and shares! We sincerely appreciate it with all of our hearts!

Thank you to all that have donated! It is so greatly appreciated! With me being the only one working finances are tight and it is helping us so much!!!! We have had a few setbacks when mike was hospitalized this last week with double pneumonia and unable to get a final fitting for his prosthetic resulting in a prosthetic that did not fit, so his leg has been returned so that we can start the process over again. Hopefully we will get his leg tomorrow I’ll try to keep everyone updated via FB and on here! Thank you again for all the love, support and donations!!!!!
