The first week of October 2014 my husband got injuried at work. And has been out of work since then. The injury caused two bulging discs in his lower back and tore one as well and is leaking fluid into his back. He struggled to walk and do thing and has been seeing a spine specialist. But they told him it will just take "time to heal" and have been trying all kinds of Rx's to help heal him and control the pain.
Fast forward to the end of January. One doctor referred him to another and changed his Rx's. Long story short, he put him on two that should have never been taken together and cause him to have a severe seizure. He had never had one before and had always been healthy and hard working before his injury. I watched my husband almost died in front of me as his seizure lasted 15-20 minutes where he was out completely before he started to come out of it. Normal seizures we learned only last 2-5 minutes max.
That brings us to now... My husband now has to see multiple doctors, can't walk at all without assistance, and his short term memory is near gone. He can't drive or even do little things at home that normal people take for granted on a daily bases leaving me to care for our three children (one is a newborn baby) as well as our house and take care of him as well. He is not allowed to be left alone at anytime.
Our families are both helping us as much as they can, but they can't do it all. Bills are adding up and falling behind faster then we can even get them in the mail.
We are asking for you to please, reach into your heart and help us in anyway that you can. Every little bit helps!! If you are able to donate anything monetary, it is beyond greatly appreciated so we can get groceries, help pay our bills, put gas in our car to be able to get to and from appointments..... Gift cards/certificates are also greatly appreciated too. Even if you are willing to send items we need to survive, anything helps.
Please help by sharing this as well. You have no idea how valuable life is until you watch someone almost lose theirs right before your eyes out of no where. We are forever greatful for any help you can give to us.
