to pay medical expenses for husband

On October 22, 2013 I took my husband to the emergency room, because he had a red swollen spot on his body. Within two hours he was in the operating room with the diagnosis of Necrotizing Faciitis. The disease can be researched on http://www.cdc.gov/features/NecrotizingFasciitis/
He has at this time had 5 surgeries and will have several more. He is scheduled for one on Wednesday, October 30, 2013. He is currently in the SICU at Holston Valley Hospital in Kingsport, TN. He will be there for several more days up to a few weeks or months.
He started out on a ventilator and now has been given a tracheostomy tube and is still on the breathing machine and a feeding tube. Until Friday, October 25th the doctors warned me he would not live, now they are hopeful he will. He is on the road to recovery and I am thankful.
I am asking help to cover cost that we are incurring while he is hospitalized. He has very limited insurance so not all of his medical procedures and such are not covered. So we are asking for help to cover those needs and others as they arise.
