Taking care of my Wife



I have updated our cover photo as it was brought to my attention that my Wife Doni did not 'look' sick. The fist photo and one at bottom of page are four years old. The current photo photo of us was taken the morning of Sept. 5, 2017.
 Me and my Wife Doni have been vary happily married for 29 years. She is My Best Friend was my best helper when we had our own contracting bussiness. About five years ago Doctors found a growth in Donis brain. We where told at the time it was inoperable. So from there we took it day by day. I watched as Donis health deteriorated. Doni lost most of her eye sight, has short term memory loss, has lost most of her balance, has lost too much weight, due to no appatite. The growth has affected her nervous system the most. Doni has started to lose control of her bowels and bladder. Doni is in sever pain all the time. About a month ago Doni had a heart attack that has left her in bed most of the time. Donis Doctor had us contact Hospic Services. That usually means less than six months to live. Doni wants me to be here to take care of her. We have a caregiver but she is only allowed 25 hours a week, which is not enough. My work will let me have Family Leave Act, which keeps my job but does not pay. I have missed most of this week to be here for her already, as Doni is my world. Doni is also a loving. Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother. Doni has been my world for over 30 happy and great years. I love her more than life itself. I am trying to raise enough funds to cover our basic bill's while I stay at home to care for Doni. I have cut our bills to just the basics. Thank You for reading our story.
