Medical Expenses- surgery/legs

In October 2013 my father, David, started to experience circulatory complications and severe pain, due to diabetes.  He faced frequent hospitalizations and 5 surgeries during that time.  In June, he faced a near-death infection and was hospitalized for close to a month before ultimately amputating his leg. He's in a significantly improved state of health - the best he's been in years. 

He's now a double amputee fully engaged in Physical Therapy, hopeful for clearance to be independent and sufficient once again.

Costs from multiple hospitalizations, surgeries, home modifications, medications, and tests have gotten quite high.  As arrangements are made, there are expensese that require attention before he can be approved to fully move to the next   level of care.

David is a retired widowerer and supportive father.  As the self-help costs continue to climb, any contribution can make a difference in achieving our goal.  Your support is truly appreciated.
