Get back to work on courts

Hi! It’s been a rough three weeks thus far. What I thought was Achilles tendinitis in my right Leg turned out to be a very serious and painful staph infection. One physical therapist, 2 chiropractor visits, 4 podiatrist visits,  2 primary physician visits, 3 emergency visits, 2 weeks in the hospital, 2 surgeries, to much and to many pain medication to speak of, a pick line put in my arm, and multiple infectious disease doctors.        
     I got home on the 1st of October with a soft cast on. Now the road to recovery. Have to use crutches and give myself antibiotics via iv. I went to see the podiatric surgeon today. The color looks much better in my foot but the scar looks horrible. I have to treat a small opening left by the drain every day packing and re-wrapping it. I Have to do follow up visits w my podiatrist once a week. See the visiting nurse once a week to give blood and change the dressing on the pick line. My last day for antibiotics will be November 20th. Then physical therapy to strengthen everything.  Hopefully then I can return to teaching.
     Despite having health insurance, the bills are going to amount to a few thousand dollars. My job is No work No pay. With 2 kids in college, one that plays travel baseball, and the regular daily bills Such as a mortgage, I can already see big financial problems on the horizon.   
       This is why I’m asking for your help.
