Graduation or Bust- take that Lupus!

I have 2 amazing sons. I get to see my older son a lot as he lives in Wilmington also. My younger son, Alex graduates from SMU on Saturday, May 17th. I have not seen him since last February due to health and finances. I was able to "skype" to his senior recital but the thought of missing his grauation is more than I can bear. 

I have SLE - Systemic Lupus Eurythmatosis and I have been very ill most of this year. I have missed quite a bit of work and have no paid time off left. My bills are behind and this trip to Dallas is an extravagance I cannot swing without help from God and friends. 
Trip asisde, I will need help to stay afloat.  Nearly a week in the hospital and more outpatient tests and co-pays. I am so thankful I have insurance, but even with insurance I feel like I am going under.

The good news is that my rent is low, and if I can keep above water, I will be ok. I have a good job and I am a frugal person.

Though I have no right to ask, I am asking for help. If you feel led to help, I thank you. I covet your prayers as well. For healing, for wisdom and for provision.

I believe that God will provide. I hope you don't mind my appeal to you for help.
