Preserving Susan’s life at home

Susan and I have entered a chapter in our lives that is no longer manageable on our own. I am overwhelmed as I try to share this publicly, but here I go: after Susan‘s wreck in 2006 our lives were changed forever by a diagnosis of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. Though not easy, we learned to function with the new norm and a lot of loving friends. We finally bought a home in 2016. Six weeks after our move Susan fell and thus began the cycle of hospitalization to rehab to home health where a final terminal diagnosis of COPD was given. Susan is now at home on hospice and her desire is to thrive or die at home. We, with some awesome angels help, have been able to survive financially until now. Sitters are not supplied by hospice. We have exhausted all of our savings and some help from a few close friends. We are asking for financial help to cover two months worth of bills or sitter services for Susan. She is unable to be alone and I cannot return to work until we have sitter services. As hard as asking for help is, we want you to know how much we appreciate your time in reading her story and considering giving time or donations. We ask that you would share her story on your timeline as we do not want to be forced to place Susan in a nursing home. Thank you for the faith, love, and friendship that so many of you have given us throughout our years.
