Lakisha Road to recovery

On August 4,2020 I went into the hospital for what was suppose to be a planned total hysterectomy while in surgery something went wrong and the doctor ran into complications and in the process my large intestine was punctured. Which made my recovery from what was suppose to be a overnight stay a 6 day stay in the hospital with and additional surgery the very next day where the doctor had to go back inside of my abdominal cavity and make sure there were no bowel leaking out. While there was a sign of infection they cleaned me out and staple my stomach back together. I’ve been off of work prk without pay because of what was suppose to be and overnight stay and short recovery turned out to be a much longer stay and many Dr visits along with medical bills. I try to be hopeful and faithful before I ask for help. But my husband is the only one working and with me being absent so long from work we became behind in our bills, and rent at times just to try and make ends meet. But we found ourselves drowning and in need of help any amount will be greatly appreciated. 
Thank you all who can donate or whoever cannot donate May God bless you all.
