Surgery recovery help

Hello all,

As some of you know I had abdominal surgery on 9/13. It was done through a c-section type of surgery and I will be required to stay out of work for 6 weeks (I’m hoping for much less).

My rent doubled starting in September because my brother moved out and him and I were sharing expenses. I didn’t have enough time to save up enough for my October rent and bills. Plus there are so many surgery related expenses that I didn’t see coming :(

I know that we all have it hard somehow, especially during this inflated time, but I know it’d be hard to find anything better priced than what I’m paying now and I’d hate to lose the place my children and I live in at the moment because even though it's expensive it's not as crazy expensive as the rest of the homes around here. We have been here for many years and the landlord has kept it reasonable.

Anything you could help me with is greatly appreciated. If you’d like to treat it as a loan let me know and I’ll pay it back once I’m back on my feet.

Zelle or Cash apps are another way to send money or you could mail me if preferred.

Thank you in advance!


Ellie :)
