Help Wendi While Nate Recovers

On January 5th 2015 , my boyfriend had an allergic reaction to something he ate. While we were in the ER his throat closed up and he stopped breathing, his heart stopped and it took them 20 minutes to bring him back. Once life delighted to another hospital his heart stopped 2 more times but was able to bring him back quickly. Due to being without oxygen for 20mins he has experienced significant brain damage, is in a coma but has been showing progress toward recovery but very slowly. He is being looked at by The Madonna Hopital in Lincoln, Nebraska as a possible candidate for their TBI rehabilitation. We have applied for Medicaid and SSI to help take care of his medical costs but now that he is no longer working I am now responsible for all of our household expenses and soon his car payment and insurance. My car is not in good shape and for me to travel 50 miles to see him in the hospital when I can I have to keep his car. He has a little over $7000.00 left to pay on it and I can't afford it our rent, utilities and I am also raising his 8 year old dog who I claim as my own and our 7month old puppy we rescued as a couple. They are two sweet pit bulls that are not just pets they are our babies. Please help me in anyway you can. I am praying everyday that he fully recovers and .com s back home soon but we have a long road ahead of us and I need all the help I can get. Thank you so much for reading our story and thank you in advance for your donation.
