Anita's Medical Bill funding

On the Day of December 19th 2017 I came down with a severe headache and high fever.  I went home to rest and in the afternoon I was awoken by my son Brandon who asked if I was okay. I shook my head to communicate to him but could not speak.  Brandon saw I was in distress and called 911.  When I got to the local hospital I could not move.  I could hear everything but that was it.  My vitals were fine, they did a spinal tap and found that I had Bacterial Menigitis.  I was rushed to Fort Wayne Lutheran Hospital were they treated me with antibiotics for 8 days. Once the anitbiotics began to work I began to speak and was able to move some. After my relaease I had to go to Adams Memorial twice a day to get an IV to administer more antibiotics.  After my discharge I went to my family Doctor who told me how sick I was and how close to death I was.  I am having trouble with my left leg.  I went to neurologist and got a MRI to make sure there was no damage to the brain which would cause my leg to be so weak. They did not see anything except fluid built in and around the ear. Now I am going to Ear, nose and throat doctor and I have an appointment with infectious disease doctor.  I also am taking therapy to try and get stronger. The funds would help pay bills while I am off work.  I have not been given a time table for when I can go back to work.
