Eric Robanske and Family

On July 10, my Niece Diana's (Carolyn's daughter) husband Eric Robanske had severe chills and shaking. He was taken to the hospital and tranferred to St. Luke's in Milwaukee Wi, in critical condition. They found he had sepsis! One of the things sepsis attacks is foreign objects, and Eric has had  total knee replacements on both knees in 2014. While undergoing surgery to clean out the infection in both knees he stuffered a stroke that affected the use of his left side. He still has no feeling or movement today. He now struggles with his lungs filling up with fluid and has to have a respirator to help him breathe. He has congestive heart failure, the infection has damaged his heart, lungs and kidney. The mitral valve(heart) needs to be replaced but they need him to get stronger, he also has to have total knee replacements in both knees at a later time. He is in St. Luke's in the ICU while receiving antiboitics for this infection awaiting surgeries.  My niece Diana has been making the long drive to be with her husband as much as she can, but must also continue to work and take care of her son. Medical bills are piling up and with the loss of his income the family is struggling to make ends meet and keep their home. Any amount you can give will help her with family needs, gas, rent, and of course the medical bills that are coming in.
