Just Need A Little Help To Get By!

Jameson, my 5 month old son, was diagnosed with RSV, which usually isn't too bad for healthy people. But with him being so little caused him to have severe breathing issues. He was rushed to the ER on 2 separate occasions in the last week by ambulance.. This last time on Tuesday (1/3/2017)after being on oxygen for over 8 hours and still struggling to breathe, the DRs decided to put him on a ventilator.. They knew if he got too tired (and boy was he tired, he didn't sleep the entire time!) and couldn't fight anymore he would give up and stop breathing. Being only 5 months old and having to be completely knocked out on drugs and sedation, Mike and I wanted to be there at all times, at least one of us, in case anything happened. He has had a couple hiccups along the way and needed more help than the ventilator could offer, but luckily there is a nurse in his room at all times. I haven't been able to work any of my shifts this past week and Mike has also missed work. This is going to cause us to get behind in bills. Having NO income coming in for AT LEAST one week and possibly another (Hopefully not, but it's so unpredictable that we wont know). He is on Doctor Dinosaur for his insurance, which i desperately hope will cover all the medical expenses, but not our gas to and from the hospital, our bills at home, food, etc. We are asking for anything you could offer to help! It does not have to be much, even $5 towards gas or food is a big help! Just enough to help us get by for these coming weeks ahead. Anyone who knows me, knows I dread asking for help, but sometimes you have to do what you need to do. After the first of the month and the holidays, we don't really have anything saved up to get us by. We continue to thank you all for your support and prayers, keep them coming, it truly does help! And thank you for listening and standing by us in this tough time we appreciate it more than you all will ever know.
