Emily's Surgery/Have to Move

$3,310 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 60 people in 2 months
In the last couple of months my wife, Emily, fell and tore her meniscus in her knee, then we found out that our landlord has to sell our house and we must move. We thought we could handle it, but our health insurance only covers a fraction of the cost of surgery, and we have to come up with over $1000 just for the doctor and surgery center. This puts our ability to move into someplace safe for our 7 year old daughter in grave jeopardy, so I have had to swallow my pride and come to you wonderful people for help. Moving will also cost between $1-2000, so anything you can do to help will be deeply appreciated. I am trying to find a part time job to supplement our income, but so far no one wants to hire a 54 year old to stock shelves. Emily's surgery is supposed to happen on the 28th of September (we were unaware that the surgery center would demand cash up front despite us having health insurance) so please help if you can. Thank you so much! We love you all!!!

Emily has begun her physical therapy, and we have already had the 'Did you do your exercises yet today' conversation. :-)

Emily had her first (and hopefully last) follow up with her doctor yesterday. She is healing well, and there don't appear to be any complications. She'll be starting physical therapy soon and in six weeks or so she should be good as new! :-) <3

We took Emily's bandages off this morning and there is remarkably little swelling. She ran some errands today(stir crazy does not begin to describe her mood after being 99% horizontal since Friday) and doesn't even need her crutches!! She sees the doctor again on Thursday, so fingers crossed for good news!! <3
