28604920_15246764170_r.jpegI am currently waiting on my 7th surgery to replace my hip. What should have been a simple hip replacement on 4/4/17, became one of chronic pain! I development Staph/MRSA. After 3 surgeries I went back to work July 2017 thinking all was ok. Little did I know I developed Osteomyelitis in the bone in my left leg. I had surgery again on 3/2/18. The surgeon broke my femur (leg) in half to insert antibiotic spacers. I had to have a 2nd surgery and my hip is still in my leg, but not in place. I am only able to get around by wheel chair or walker. My left leg is non weight bearing. I am in constant pain. My surgeon just had an aspiration completed after consulting with infectious disease center and I am still very septic. My surgeon has now totally removed the left hip.
.I have been juggling bills and struggling with no pay since beginning of March 2018. All that know me, understand that this is not easy for me to do. My time is precious as the longer the bone in my left leg dies, bone morrow or worse case is amputation could be required. I am not ready to go down that road at 48 years old and I appreciate in advance anything that you can do to just pay household bills.  I thank can’t thank everyone enough that has all ready donate $5,$10, $20. Or even larger amounts. I am Bless right now to have struggled thru and will not stop until I am cured!! 

May God Bless All,
