Chris was finally able to come home on November 15th, but with many difficulties. We currently have a portable suitcase ramp, which he is unable to use independently due to having to go down backwards. We are looking into getting a more permanent structure with a gradual decline, but it is quite costly. He is currently sleeping on the sofa because he cannot get up the stairs to our bedroom. I sleep on the other end of the sectional as well because I'm terrified that he will need me and I will not hear him if he calls for me. I had a quote for a chairlift done from a local company, the cost with installation and taxes is $2700 CDN funds. His ramp, wheelchair, walker and commode are all free to him for the first 30 to 60 days, after that we have to pay the monthly rentals for them.
Currently we cannot afford our daily living expenses, we are behind in our utilities and our rent. We struggle everyday. Our daughter doesn't even want to celebrate Christmas at all this year because she knows money is tight. She doesn't deserve that, she is the one that kept me going through the time Chris was in hospital, if it wasn't for her, I don't know where I would be now.
If we could get funding to cover the costs to purchase the above mentioned equipment and catch up our past bills, that in itself would be our Christmas Miracle.
