As most of you know, our sweet friend has gone in today (2/5/15) for her 3rd back surgery in less than 2 weeks. She is having another fusion done as a recent fracture has been discovered and needs repairing. What was supposed to be a 8-10 day stay at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore has turned into possibly several weeks as she recovers from these extremely intrusive surgeries.
As this has been a painful, stressful, and traumatic experience for Angie, her husband Rick has been her biggest pillar of strength, advocate, and care giver. He has been by her side for days at a time, staying in her hospital room and sleeping on a pull-out "couch".
While this has been a huge blessing to Angie, it is unfortunately taking a financial toll on them. The extra trips and time Rick has been spending in Baltimore has also added unforseen gas, parking, and food expenses to their budget. Furthermore, while Angie's insurance will be picking up most of the tab, they will have to pay for a portion of the medical bills, which may now be tripled or quadrupled what they had anticipated given the 2 additional surgeries and extended hospital stay.
I know that Angie and her family are loved beyond words by so many people. I see the outpouring of encouragement, support, and prayers on Facebook and know that this incredible woman has touched so many lives. We all know that Angie would be the first person to step up if any of us were in need (and she has!) so I pray that we can now step up and help her and her family in this great time of need.
Angie has over 1,000 friends on Facebook so if we each gave just $1.00 we can make a difference for this family. If we gave just a little more, we can shower them with an amazing blessing! Maybe you can make coffee at home tomorrow morning instead of buying a latte, or brown-bag it for a day instead of eating out for lunch, and donate that little amount to this family who really needs one less thing to worry about.
Thank you again for taking the time to visit Angie's page. And thank you for the love, support, and prayers - the best gift of all!!
****** My sincerest apologies for the incorrect info I posted about Rick's job. Rick is salaried and is still receiving an income from his business. I am so sorry for the misprint and confusion!
