I am considered terminal, and they gave me days to a week to live at that time. I was given the choice to stay in the hospital or to go home and spend my time with my family. Hospice stepped in and has helped me be comfortable at home. The family has helped by administering medications and breathing treatments. I have fought for the past three weeks and will continue to do so. I am fighting to reach a goal of getting off the blood thinners which must be taken for six months for my heart. At that time, I may be able to have an operation to extend my time.
In the meantime, the place where I have lived 14 years without a lease for the past 13 years is being sold. Lawyers have been consulted already but we still have to vacate by the 24th of July. We just received the letter on the evening of the 28th, and the 4th weekend slowed down responses from lawyers. We were hoping for a better resolution, but have learned we have no ground to stand on. We may have the ability to extend our time by 15 days through court, but eviction is still the outcome.
With such a short time to handle this, I am asking for anyones help. The expenses are overwhelming Larry and I at this point. I have tried to continue to work but am not able to perform simple task anymore. I'm still doing some physical stuff but its more like washing dishes and sweeping when I'm feeling up to it. The amount I'm asking for includes many things. Things such as rent/deposits, moving expense, food, gas, truck repair or rental and more.
"If you find it in your heart to help, I would certainly appreciate it. Just the thought of asking makes me sad. I wish I could do this on my own as I normally would try to find a way. I am just not able to do these things anymore as my mind is foggy and thoughts get lost. I send all of my love to everyone and hope I will be able to return a favor if time allows. God Bless!"
This was written by one of my sons in an effort to improve my current situation. The last paragraph is what she said when asked if she wanted to say anything to the people that may help her.
