Family medical act / Angel hands

Hi please read to the end! 
Here’s my birth story.. I was supposed to be induced Weds . But went to labor and delivery on Tuesday he wasn’t moving as he’s supposed to. And heart rate was jumping every time I contracted. So they decided that they would start inducing but I had already started contracting. They put a fully blub in me. It comes out once you’re 5cm. My contractions started getting harder. They gave me morphine. It didn’t help. Then they gave me nitrous. But I was still screaming in pain and balled up. I also was super dehydrated they had to give me 5 bags of fluid. That helped. I finally got to a 5 and they said I could have an epidural. The labor at hospital was 26 hours. The epidural worked great. Until it fell out. I was 7 or 8 cm when it came out. I thought I was going to die. It was the very very most pain I’ve ever felt. And if some one told me they would shoot me and it would stop, I would have accepted. Anthony was holding me and I was screaming..he was crying cause he felt so bad for me. They put the second epidural in and had to get me pain boosters because it wasn’t working. The labor processed on its own. I was switching positions a lot but the babies heart rate kept dropping. Finally, when they told I was 10 they wanted me to wait until I felt like I needed to poop. They stop some of the meds so you can feel to push. And I was like I want this thing out. I pushed him out in 35 mins. His cord was wrapped around his throat 3 times.
This is kinda the run down : I had sever back pain since about 5 hours after having baby. I went home Friday. Got readmitted on Saturday. They did an mri saw a blood patch around where I had the epidural(2 of them) and then I was having spasms and joint pain. That would cause me to flail about and scream in pain. My right leg a day later started to tingle and go numb. I can’t walk normally or carry maybe as I have to use a walker to get around. They did some blood tests and I have an infection in my blood stream as of Sunday.  So they’re giving me antibiotics for that. Steroids and pain meds. Around the clock. Then monday wake up and I can’t feel my foot. I can’t bend it up. So I had another mri 3.5 hours. It was so hot in there it burnt my arm. And they were discussing surgery again but do not think it’s bad enough for that. To monitor this issue cause it’s to do with my spine and nerves. It’s a mess. I’m a mess emotionally I miss my kids. And I have barely gotten to love on my baby and the rest of our babies.  The past three weeks have been horrible.

The one and only time I have ever been thank for for Anthony being layed off is now. He has to go back to work in about 2 weeks and I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to walk with a walker and carry baby safety. As well as do my pt and ot in Home as few times a week. And so I’m desperately trying to figure out how I can have someone to home to help me until Anthony is gone at work. 
My thought right now is if I can get my mom to be able to take her family medical act. You don’t get paid for that position but if some how we could get her 2 months  her salary so she could help for 2 months with baby and I, it would be amazing. Please please please keep playing for us. I sit here typing this as we’re on the side of the rd broke down waiting for one of Anthony’s brothers come to rescue us. 
If you can help in anyway. It would be much appreciated if you can’t a prayer would be much appreciated as well.  All I can be thankful is for a healthy baby boy.  This too shall pass.
