Tom's surgery & hospital expenses

My left hip was replaced 7 years ago, it had to be removed due to an infection almost two years ago, and after dealing with it, plus different issues for these last two years (with no hip bone or hip prosthesis) l finally got the second left hip replacement about a month ago, it went initially perfect and then a nastier infection developed in the femur, new treatment did not work and they had to remove the new prosthesis, some rotten bone and muscle tissue. The current treatment l have been having for the last 14 days, is the VAC, which is effective, fast and very expensive,  (5 surgeries so far and there will be 2 more).
We were ready for the surgery and all expenses a month ago but this hospitalization totally drained my funds and Alex's. We are trying to sell our condo and some other property but that takes time and we are in urgent need now of your generosity, help and donations to help us with the huge hospital bills asap please. 
Credit cards almost maxed out, some angels already gifted us some cash, we got a couple of loans already and we are still short. Please help. Every penny counts, a lot. This will help me get out of the hospital without having to fall prey of loan sharks or l don't know what we would do.  l need your help. 
My situation is urgent and l never mean to bother anybody, but l am putting this out there and trust that we get some help from you all as you click and participate and help. Thank you so very much. We love you all.
