Ron's medical expenses

It started as a diabetic wound on his foot that wouldn't heal. It developed and abscess beneath the wound. The abscess was so severe it dislocate his toe at the joint. He was hospitalized August 13th with a severely swollen foot and high fever. They have him on 2 of the strongest antibiotics trying to get a handle on the infection.
The surgeon cleaned the abscess out expecting it would help, but to no avail, he is still running high fevers.
He was transferred to Palms West hospital to be overseen by the Infectious Disease specialist there.

They had him scheduled to do another surgery on August 22nd, but the reaction of antibiotics caused him a bad anaphylactic reaction as seen in the photo. He is swollen everywhere. So the surgery is postponed until they get the allergic reaction and fever under control. Meanwhile, he is out of work until he gets better. His job has been good to him, holding his job, but expenses are racking up and the bills need to get paid.  

Any help would be appreciated. Nothing to small. Definitely except as much prayer as you can give for speedy recovery as well.

All money raised will go toward home and medical expenses for them.

God bless,

Donna
