We’re overwhelmed and this has been an incredibly emotional couple of weeks, but I’m SO grateful that things turned out the way they did. I’m grateful that it happened during a season where we had more of a financial cushion (since we both have been so busy with work). I’m grateful that it happened when I had already planned a decent amount of time off. I’m glad that it was around the holidays so that our family could be near. I’m so grateful that we caught this early, as the situation could have been much worse.
The healing process will take at least 3 months, and as a delivery driver, Joe won’t likely be able to return to work until after that period. I’ll also be taking more time away from work to help him recover. We worked out the numbers, and we’ll need about $15,000 to cover our everyday bills and general needs over the next few months. Anything extra that we raise will go towards Joe’s medical bills. If you are in a position where you’re willing and able to donate, we would be so appreciative. Along with GoFundMe, I do have Venmo, Facebook Pay, Apple Pay, and Zelle if you’d like to help us avoid fees. We’d like to thank everyone who’s given time, money, and energy in recent weeks. I don’t know how we would’ve made it through without you all!
