Half time makes bad christmas

On July 20, our plans for the next several months were ruined when I had a 200 pound piece of equipment fall after a safety latch failed. I was kneeling underneath, putting a large gash in my leg and breaking the ends of my tibia and fibula on my left leg, just below my ankle. Over the next couple days, its become more and more clear the future repercussions this is going to have on our daily lives. We have to get my wife her license, her name on insurance, continue to pay bills for electric, internet and phone service as well as the car payment. If we raise enough, we're hoping to get her some time off to help me as I go through the next few rounds of surgery and physical therapy. Anything you could contribute will help to support us and our 4 children as we focus on making it through this sudden difficult time.
