In a few days I will be having open heart surgery for aortic valve replacement due to a birth defect. I will not be able to work for three months. I rely greatly on my part time job income, as my retirement income does not cover everything. My medical expenses have been more than expected, and will continue overwhelmingly over the next few months, especially since I won't have the income from my job. It is extremely difficult for me to ask for help, but I don't know what else to do...I have to concentrate on my surgery and recovery. If you can find it in your heart to help, God bless you. I would be more grateful than you could ever imagine. Thank you!
