Help needed after Surguries

AS many of our friends remember, last year I was hospitalized for a ruptured Diverticulitis. To avoid dying of septic shock, about 18 inches of the colon was removed. The surgery was easy compared to the 8 weeks of not being able to work. Rent, bills, food, nessecities, they are required whether you are working or not. Many friends, family and even strangers came and helped me when a fellow brother started a page like this for me and it was a Godsend!!! Again, I thank everyone who helped. 
So here is my delima, my Mother of 78 yrs. old, who still works to survive is going in for the same surgery this month on Sept.25th. I would gladly take care of my mother if I also didn't happen to be going in for yet another Hernia surgery Oct. 2nd  myself. That surgery puts me out of comission for another month without work, while my wounds heal enough to fend for myself and my family. I am a proud man and hate writing for help, but sometimes life happens and you just need help. I know I have many understanding friends with good hearts, and even just a few dollars (times my many friends) would make a world of difference to two very good people in a medical emergency, time of need. 

I am asking mainly for my Mom, who really is going to be in a bad position, and if there is a little extra, then I wont be evicted either and can eat in October. lol
I hope everyone sees a little humor there, as I'm pretty sure thats not happening. But things are serious and blessing to any and everybody who feels they can help just a little.
