Medical Bills

I'm not one for handouts or anything like that but I'm in a situation where I cant get thru it myself and in seeking help. The amount is a guess how much procedure may cost and Bills I wont be able to cover til I'm back at work.  September 15th night I passed in the driveway with chest pain. I drove myself to ripon hospital got disrespected there by a doctor there and found out that my pacemaker was too old for their equipment to read so I was transferred to mercy in oshkosh. There they found out that my batteries are at the end of their life and I have a bad wire. I was discharged Monday afternoon after adjusting my pacemaker settings said 1 to 2 months left on batteries. They couldn't do the full surgery there because they need a specialist to remove the bad wire from the scar tissue and veins that have grown and attached to the wire for the last 9 years. Right now I'm not allowed to drive and work till this surgery is done. Called to schedule it today since they had more "important" calls to handle monday (quoting secretary) they told me they wont do the surgery because I dont have insurance. Getting insurance these past 2 years since I got off my parents insurance has been a battle in itself since I had a preexisting condition or made to much. So that brings me up to now. I cant work because of heart, cant get heart fixed because no insurance, can't get insurance because of bad heart/making to much. I would greatly appreciate the help and so would my family! Thank you!
