Medical Emergency Help

As many of you know, my health has become very poor subsequent to breaking my patella in February of 2016. In May 2017, I started hemodialysis.  In September 2017, I had triple bypass surgery.  I was hospitalized until Thanksgiving.  In January 2018, I suffered from double pneumonia and both strains of the flu simultaneously! It is miraculous I have survived.  However, I am very weak.  

The doctors and insurance are not offering a great deal of assistance with short-term care nor physical therapy. They believe I am too weak to complete therapy! Although we are struggling, God is sustaining our hope. "Dum spiro spero! While yet I breathe, I hope!"
 Saint Andrew

As a consequence of these unfortunate events,  Magda has had to quit her job to care for me and assist in the physical therapy in our home.  This is a temporary situation until I get strong enough to care for myself.  Please join us at this critical time.
