Needing help getting my family back &forth

on june 11th my legs went to sleep from the knees down. My right leg slowly came back to normal. My left leg decided it was not going to cooperate.  I couldn't walk,  I had to use a wheelchair.  Luckily I had my gradmas at my house. So I noticed I had a small boil on the back of my leg. Non of this was painful, at the time. I went to my doctor she said I needed to get to the ER immediately. She gave me a shot of antibiotics then sent me on my way. Of course the hospital admitted me. The surgeon said he needed to go in and lance the boil. It was much worse when he it there. He had to do a lot more cutting than just a lancing. When I woke up they told me I had necrotizing frasciitis which is a flesh eating bacteria. I had 3 surgeries in poplar bluff ,no. Which is about 13 miles from my house, no biggie. But then I was transferred to barnes jewish hospital in St. Louis , mo, and that hospital is 4 and a half to 5 hours away from where I live. My family and I are hard up on our Bill's so we definitely don't have gas money to get back and forth to st.louis. if you can help even a little I'd be ever so greatful. I'm still in the hospital. This is around 3 wks. I'm not going home anytime soon. I have had 6 surgeries here. Another one scheduled for monday where they are cutting a chunk out of my leg that is infected on my leg. I may be getting a skin graph monday too. Any help is appreciated!
