Jessie Culverhouse sickness costs

Hello everybody please share this after you read it.
I want to start off by saying I have no idea how much the family is really going to need. As you can see from the picture of my father Jessie Culverhouse, the sickness known as C-Diff has taken its toll on him and our family. He has been to the Opelika Hospital already for twelve days and was sent back home.

Not even three full days after his discharge, the home health care nurse took one look at daddy and said he needs to be taken back to the hospital right now. Consequently, my mother and I soon found ourselves on the road again and in another ER room for 11 hours altogether before my father was finally transferred into room 337 at Tanner Hospital in Carrollton, Georgia.

That night, he was diagnosed with the serious condition known as C-Diff. My mother and I have been going back forth doing a 32 mile one way trip to see my dad and taking turns being with him and every now and again the two of us come together at the same time.

To make matters even more difficult, we have to be extremely careful at home and purchase many cleaning agents and sanatation accessories even more than usual with C-Diff. I am sure you are asking why: well, this sickness already has damaged my family's well being as four years ago my mother contracted the illness and she nearly lost both her life and sanity. Now, the family is facing the challenging ordeal a second time.

As you probably have already guessed, my mother and I are both extremely exhausted. She and I both trying to juggle this double duty while deal with serious health concerns of our own. To make matters worse, we have one running vehicle that already has over 300,000 miles on it. Continuing, we have a newborn that is two months old named Roman who is an incredible blessing but a new infant also means plenty of new expenses.

We are doing the best we can but this kind of thing takes an emotional and financial toll on a family the likes of which are simply devastating.
Please, keep us in your thoughts and prayers and I am sorry if this amount seems high. The doctors have told us it will be a while before he is able to transfer to a rehab center. That is assuming he makes it out of here at all.

Let me be clear, this is a very serious illness and with my daddy's health, there is no guarantee he ever makes it out here. With that being said, we need all of your thoughts and prayers and if you can give anything to this campaign to help my family's expenses please give whatever you can that won't hurt you. If you can't, I totally get it.

I love you all and thank you very much for all you have given us so far. We couldn't have done what we have without your help so far and I can truly say that our family is blessed with the rich amount of friends and family we have in our lives emotionally and spiritually. Thanks and God bless!
Sincerely Yours,
Chris Culverhouse
