Joshua's expenses for his family

As a mother this is very difficult for me to write. My son Joshua Wurgler  has had a very difficult journey in his short life, choices that he has made. Over the past couple months Joshua was finally on the right track with his life. He has a wonderful girlfriend that loves him very much and a wonderful little girl, that joshua treats as his own he was very happy and optimistic  about his future and his family. That all changed on 11-14-2017, as most of you no. Joshua was at work, which he has said many times that he loved his job and he was making good money to take care of his family, well on that night at work everything changed for him. Joshua was doing his job and he got his foot stuck in a conveyor belt at work and thank god one of his co-worker heard him screaming and waving his arms and they shut it off, i am assuming otherwise I would be preparing his funeral.  Well with the help of fire fighters, emts,  and who ever after one hour and 11 minutes , they freed his foot and he was air lifted to upstate university medical in syracuse NY. I mean I live 1 hour and about 30 min from the hopital and we made it there before he did. Well any way they had to amputate his foot and the next morning he had sergury to have his leg apmutated just below the knee for a prostectic.  Well right now my son is still  in the hospital recovering  from his injuries and   I don't believe this has truly hit him yet he laughs it off and everything but, he has long recovery a head of him. I am just trying to raise enough money for his daily living expenses so that he can continue to take care of his family.  No doubt he will be compensated for what happened but that is way down the road. Joshua needs to no that he can still provide for his family and not rely on others  he has car payments to make, rent to pay and just basic necessities in order for joshua to have some kind of  normalcy back into his life.  Plus with the holiday's coming , with a little 2 year old beautiful baby , every little bit will help my son. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart in advance.
