Ed Smith/Jayne Hogan Support Help

This might quite possibly be one of the hardest things I have ever had to do other than watching my husband slip away a bit more every day. I need help and I hate that I have to ask for it, but I no longer am able to financially continue without additional assistance. Day to day expenses are one thing and while a struggle, they are not the issue. Losing Ed’s income and having unexpected medical expenses on top has become overwhelming. Adding in things like having a truck that needs fixed, bills that had been forgotten due to illness, plumbing issues that were not fixed properly the first time All of this on top of caring for Ed here at home where he wants to be is more than I can handle. I put on a good front, but I am struggling and yes, I am asking for help.
I can’t work as taking care of Ed is 24 hour care even with Hospice assist. I rarely leave him to spend his last days together. I have 2 horses with a seller and trying to inventory all the extras that I can sell i.e. trailer, trucks, tools and more tools. It takes time.
