As most people know by now, my mother is in the hospital for a stomach tear and has been since Wednesday and we have no idea when she will be out. Medical bills are expensive BUT my biggest concern is that both of my parnets are missing work, especially my mom, we have no idea when she can go back. Normally this would not be a huge deal, but my parents booked their first ever big vacation for themselves in just over a month (a cruise) and knowing them, they will just cancel and say they will go another time. Truly, they have never taken a real vacation, just them. They always take us kids or just do little day trips nearby to save money. If you know my parents story, specifically what they’ve been through in the past year, you know they NEED this trip. So, as awkward as this thing is for me, I am asking for help for them to not be so burdened by this time off work. Anything helps, even a share. The love my family has seen in the past couple of days is incredible and I am beyond thankful.
