Basic Needs for Surgery Recovery

Hi Everybody, 
           So, yeah...I have a couple of herniated disks in my neck right now, between C 5, 6, and 7.  They have been painful and obnoxious for quite some time, but lately the situation has become more serious, and they are being real jerks.            
            My right arm is almost useless at this point and working has become less possible and more dangerous for me over the last several months. 
         So the doctor says they have to take the disks out, so that I don't get paralyzed and stuff. My surgery is scheduled for December 18th. Fortunately, my medical bills are covered for the procedure, but unfortunately my living expenses are not.  
          I will be laid up recovering for at least a month, and since I earn my living by cleaning houses and making candy, I will be unable to meet my expenses for rent and basic needs until sometime in early spring. 
         I know that this is not the first time I have needed help, and that this is the worst time of year to ask for it, but it is what it is, and I need it. 
        So, thanks for reading my tale of woe, and if you can manage it, any donations would be super duper appreciated. 

Love, Julie
