Extended Care for Donna Mark

As many of you know, my wife and best friend for over 46 years Donna Mark has fallen ill.  About six months ago, she began to spin into a web of medical issues that left her unresponsive and immobile.  We've spent many months figuring out that she has a liver disease that will likely be with her for life.  She's currently in a Rehab Center (see Facebook), on the mend towards coming home.

Unfortunately, we are limited by Medicare as to how long she can stay here without significant co-pay.  That will be $165.00 per day starting on February 1st.

She's so close to coming back home to us, But the doctor is not going to discharge her (correctly) until the time is right and, when she is discharged, we will need to pay someone to help her while I am working, until she is able to move about without assistance,  hopefully, not for long.

Donna’s cognitive function is back to normal, and her sprits and faith are great, but she’s going to need some serious physical therapy as well as bilateral cataract surgery to get back on her feet and enjoying a decent quality of life.

Any love, prayers and donations you aready have and can continue to extend are all appreciated. This request is for enough funding to carry Donna’s medical expenses for the duration of her time at the skilled nursing facility, as well as home care, which we expect to be about 30 days. Thank you for your love and support.

Much love to all!
