Daddy had a stroke!

Hello! My name is Evelyn Salazar! Come from an amazing family my father Hector, my mother Cecilia and my little brother Hector Jr. My father had a stroke on September 30th. The stroke hapened at home and we were able to get the help he needed quick. From RMC he was transported to Grady, he spent about 2 weeks in ICU. They weren't able to promise us anything at the beginning, he had to go into surgery the following day of his stroke. He had a blood cloth in the back of his head that affected his speech, and whole movement on his right side.  My father is a 49 year old, many people say too young to have a stroke. But it can happen to anyone at anythime. My mother, his wife of 23 years has been by his side these almost 7 weeks since the day he got sick! I am blessed to have parents that have so much love for one another and kept the promises they gave eachother on that alter. He is slowly but surely recoverying! He will be having therapy 3 times a week at home starting this upcoming Monday. Our insurance covers 80% of the visits so out of pocket we will end up paying $180 per visit.
Now... My father and mother are both out of work due to his condition. He is unable to care for himself so my mom stays with him to watch over him. I am the only one working, even though my income is coming in it's not enough for bills, car payments, medicines and so on. We have amazing family members that have been helping us out.  But, when bills start coming in left and right that money fades away. Anything anyone can help with will be appreciated. We sometimes have to set our pride aside and ask for a hand. My family will appreciate it all. Thanks in advance <3 God bless...
