Melodie Martin medical expenses

My Mom, Melodie Martin, had a triple heart bypass on 7/6. She did well but is high risk due to kidney failure. On 7/9 she had a complication causing her heart to stop for 4 minutes and an emergency reopening of her chest. They reclosed her chest a second time and due to the lack of natural filtration in her kidneys and her increase of medications she was unconscious a few days. She is now awake but weak and still has a few weeks of recovery due to this setback. After she leaves St. Vincent hospital in Little Rock she will be in an overnight stay rehab facility for another week or so until she is strong enough to walk and take care of herself. My Dad has taken off work to help my Mom during this difficult time and the expenses of driving back and forth from their home in Atkins, food, and missing work is already taking its toll on the family. He has exhausted his paid time off and is now in unpaid family medical leave. Please donate what you can to help. If you know my Mom you know she is a very giving, selfless person and is deserving of our help. We
appreciate anything you can do.
