Surgery and Recovery

For about 20 years I have struggled with severe and debilitating pain from ovarian cysts. I have been in and out of hospitals more times than I care to count. After this last overnight hospital stay for pain management, my OBGYN has finally agreed that a complete hysterectomy is necessary.
My surgery is scheduled for November 14th. In the meantime I am home pain managing as I need to. Since I'm a school bus driver i had to take a leave of absence from my job. I can't drive if I'm taking narcotic pain pills for obvious reasons. Because of the situation I had to take an unpaid leave. This means I will lose approximately 3 months of income and if I want to keep my health insurance I have to pay for the premiums out of pocket. This has put a HUGE financial stain on my family.
I desperately need help supplementing my income and covering my insurance premiums. I need to get health so I can get back to being the mother, wife, and school bus driver that I use to be. 
I will be forever greatful for any donations.
