Help Michael's mom with finances

Michael was violently shakened (Shakin baby syndrome) back in January 2014. He was born a healthy, full term baby. This abuse caused traumatic brain injury. I was told he would never see again, walk, or talk, that was if he even made it out of ICU and off of the ventilator. A year has passed and my precious baby is still here by the grace of God. But his main optical nerve was damaged, therefore he is blind. He has to do therapy. He is like a newborn at 19 months old. This happened when he was only 7 months old. For the past year he has been in and out of the hospital numerous times. He is currently in the hospital and has been here going on 6 weeks. I, his mama, had to quit my job to be his full time caretaker when this happened. I also have an older son that will be 7 the end of this month (February). Being financially unstable as a single mother makes everything so much harder. Living in a hospital temporary is expensive. And still he doesn't have a date to go home. I have bills to pay. Things my kids need. Plus, when we're home, driving 64 miles to his doctors, takes a lot of gas. He's also on a lot of medications which are not all covered by Medicaid. I have to pay out of pocket with some of them. Any donation would be greatly appreciated and needed. God bless!
