My mom has already been out of work for 3 weeks and is expecting to be at minimal functioning for several weeks at least. So, though she lives simply and doesn't need much to get by, she does not have the kind of padding to compensate for this kind of income loss. She is self employed and has no work benefits to fall back on.
I have been with her since Friday, helping with errands, meals and house chores, however, I need to return to Burlington tomorrow to resume classes. The nurses and I have been nagging at her all weekend to stop doing stuff, but she is a stubborn woman and won't listen to us (are you surprised?). She is very independent and isn't used to having to be cared for. Support in the form of some house work, grocery shopping and errands are welcome and would keep my mom from overdoing it during her recovery period.
We are hoping to be able to use funds as soon as possible for her everyday living expenses and supplemental recovery costs. The goal is to keep her living expenses covered until the end of march, at which point we hope that she will be able to return to work at full capacity.
My mom and I are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support from all of you - please keep the love and good vibes flowing, in whatever way you can.
