Grayden's Femur Break Recovery

Hello!  My name is Stephanie and although it is not my charatcher to lean on others or reach out for hep, I am doing this for my son and his well being.  It is with a very heavy heart that I am seeking assistance to help raise money in order to stay home for the next 2-3 months to care for my 10 year old son during his recovery.  Caring for him without losing my home and keeping up with monthly bills without falling into extreme debt is my mission.  
Saturday, August 26, 2017 my son was on a boat when he fell off the back and got tangled in the ladder snapping his right femur.  He was in the hospital for 5 days and has a long recovery ahead with the added pain associated with his EDS (Elher's Danlos Syndrome).  The next few months will be filled with numerous follow-up doctors apts, weekly in-home PT visits  and Home Schooling.  I am a single mother and a public school teacher.  I work very hard to support my one income family and do not have short term disability in order to supplement my income.  My son can not attend school and at the moment is bed bound as we contiue to work hard for him to sit up, get up and begin the stages of walking.  He needs my constant assistance and care to recover and I am not able to be there for him and financially support my family at the same time.  My mom has traveled out of state to help out, however, she can not stay the entire 3 months he requires one-on-one support and is unable to lift him as needed.  I am asking for your donations and generosity to supplement my income for 2-3 months, so that I can put my family first without the added stress of not making ends meet until he can heal and return to his normal routines.  I am forever thankful for your consideration and at the very least your prayers!
