Help! We're Screwed!

Hey guys Abby here. As alot of people who read this already know Eric and I have been together for 12 years and have 2 beautiful boys combined between us. In May of this year Eric was rushed to the Hospital and it was discovered that his liver was trying to call it quits. After being hospitalized for a week they got him stable and sent him home to deal with things. Over the last couple of months his recovery has been slow and painful. He is on several medications a day just to keep things functioning the best they can. He has weekly appointments and has to have weekly parencentesis done. (For those that don't know thats the draining of fluids from the abdomen through a needle. Fluids build up from the liver not able to do it's job) In the last week he has became ill again and was found to have pneumonia. Currently as I type this he's in the hospital. They are trying to get that better and make sure nothing else is wrong because of his already compromised immune system. Here's where things have gotten hard- luckily his insurance has covered a lot of this to put knowledge thus far. However, I am the working unit in our family and I had to cut back working hours to make sure he makes it to all his appointments and do all the things for our kids. Most people reading this know Eric has a 16 year old son who lives with us who is fully blind. Our 6 year old together is autistic. These things are what makes our situation even more unique. There's alot of care needed when it comes to our kids. Basically in a nutshell since Eric's health has been a rollercoaster I've had a hard time making it to work the hours I am scheduled. Thank God my employer is a gift and understands my circumstance. However, there's a lack of money rolling in to take care of the mounting bills and issues. I didn't know what else to do but put this out there so everyone knows what's Been up with us and help if they can. I don't expect anyone to - if you can, awesome thank you thank you thank you. If you can't it's ok. Life is hard if anyone knows that we do. All I can say is for all generosity I will find ways to pay it forward. That's one thing I can do.
