Ken's Heart Needs Teeth!

There is a Heart pacemaker in a plastic bag sitting on a cart at Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox, Illinois with my husband's name on it... The doctors are ready-the O.R. is ready...but he can't get it until a front tooth cavity is fixed.   To be fixed the other three have to be fixed as well.  Two dental offices have verified this....both are pricing the job at +- $6,000.  All this now after a cardiac stent went in in November and an E.R. /5 day stay in February for shortness of breath..  Cause is a left bundle-branch blockage in his heart.
    The dentist wants payment before he starts and Ken's Amoxicillin & Ibuprofen have run out; no refill remaining.   In our 38 years together this is the worst health crisis we have faced..
     He is a Veteran but VA covers NO dental unless he  has a 100% disability.  
     Ken drives our villages Senior Bus part-time & works at our Recreation Center-two jobs he really enjoys..
     His cheek bone has become sore so we want to get him back to the dentist this week before infection affects his eye...

      Please help all you can...prayer has gotten us this far,  but a little more is needed..
         Thank you for listening,
          Terri Nanfeldt
