Temporary Homeless Prevention Spinabifada

44540186_1581087217967743_r.jpeg44540186_1581087239366613_r.jpegWhere to begin? My baby girl Olivia was born with Spina Bifada just over 2 years ago. She had spine surgery but was left with a club foot and bladder issues. Recently, our doctor made the recommendation for corrective surgery to her foot. (Very scary since the last doctor royally screwed up her previous casting. See the heel picture.  Happy Day! She might eventually walk we thought. The trouble we are in is financial. The doctor didn't tell us the cast would be non-weight bearing. He told us on pre-opt, the day before surgery. Meaning she can't put any weight on her foot. That was terrible news. Daycare won't take her like this. I have to stay home with the baby. We were not financially prepared for a 90 day casting. Well as you can imagine, savings are down to fumes. We are behind on the rent and now I am here. Desperate to keep my kids out of a homeless shelter. Doctor says 90 days in the cast. But then she will need physical therapy after that. Found a great medical daycare that will take her in about 2-3 weeks. But that is a little to late to save the house. How long is this going to last? As you can imagine I am desperate to provide but I am a commissioned sales rep. I am now only working on Saturday and Sunday now. My family is great but they have jobs too and can't help watch her. I am looking for a night shift anywhere but that takes time. Time I don't have. If you can find it in your heart to help us, it would be like saving a life.44540186_1578293647919620_r.jpeg44540186_1578293665704066_r.jpeg44540186_1578293684501171_r.jpeg44540186_1578293699408869_r.jpeg
