Back rehab help

Funding for Bobs back surgery and rehabilitation. 

This is the hard part. I am not used to asking for help especially when it comes to money. .I have always tried to help others when I could. 

I have been putting off back surgery for several years now. It 
 has gotten to the point that I can't stand up straight and can't walk any distance at all without severe pain. I find it hard to do basic tasks around the house. I find myself in the situation that if I don't find some way to pay for the copay and rehabilitation I won't be able to walk and function at all. 


One reason why I find myself in the situation that I can't afford the expeienes is the fact that I have been burglarized 3 times in the past year. Each time the thieves took about $1500 to $2000 dollars worth of tools and things from the Woodyard (saws, air compressor, hand tools and air tools). Things that I had to replace to be able to run my business at the firewood yard. Add to that the transfer case on my 4x4 truck had to be replaced. It seems like anything that could go wrong did go wrong. .

All at once I realized that the reserve I had for my surgery was gone. That along with my back getting steadily worse. I will need funds to pay what my insurance doesn't pay for the doctors and hospital along with 24/7 care for about 2 weeks after I get home.  I don't kknow what amount of care I will need after that. I know that I am not supposed to drive for a while, just depends on how recovery goes. 

I am a proud Army veteran annd Shriner  Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. Any funds not needed for my needs to get through this and get me back on my feet will be donated to the Shriner Hospital and St. Judea childrens hospital equally. 

Also your prayers and support through this will mean as much or more than monetary support. Please share to your friends.  Thanks in advance for your support.

I have thought about my last update and along with people not wanting to use their financial information on the Internet, some people might also not want it known that they donated to someone. I'm including my mailing information again in this update for anyone who might want to help me by donating directly. Bob Merritt, PO Box 431, Morganton, Georgia, 30560.

Hi. Thanks to everyone who has shared and special thanks to the ones who have donated. If anyone out there has any ideas on how to improve my campaign please contact me with your ideas. It is getting closer and closer to the time when I will have no choice but to go ahead and have the surgery whether I have the funds to pay for rehabilitation or not. I know that God will see me through this. Thanks in advance for any ideas you may have. God bless. Bob.
