Spinal injury that could take my wife’s life

Hi where do I start... I guess I can start with my name is Roberto father of 5 a deputy sheriff in my community (any of my blue line family out there)  and married to an amazing women. My wife tricha is the best mother to my kids nothing will ever replace her, she was working full time taking care of the kids full time home schooling the kids full time she is even doing her school full time and just being the best she can be we have been together for 7 amazing years we have had this really big set back to our family and I’m scared of the what’s going to happen so the reason I’m asking for help is because the past few years she has had sever back pain with no answer to what was happening it was multiple er visits tons of doctors turning her away because she’s so young to have these types of issues we would get  no answer to what was happening  she would try and find natural ways to have the pain subside or hide it under her beautiful smile. She finally took action and met with an amazing dr who listen to her he recently had her go through back injections that have failed her and caused more injury So after that her doctor recently had her do an MRI and they said she has a back of a 90 year old due to having 3 bad disks that have also Compromised her spinal cord which that can leave her paralyzed, she has spinal damage  she gets these awful headaches due to spinal damage her bones in her spine are deteriorating They think she also has a rare bone defect but won’t no more till test results and bone biopsy  she is having surgery in early December they wanted to do emergency surgery for end of October but financially we can’t do it just yet which makes me feel like I’m failing as her husband to make her sit in more pain for longer her dr says its best she not work till then so she doesn’t cause more damage or something even worse happening they said this could be life threatening which scares me to death to think of being a single father I can’t do life with out her i brake down every time I think about this I hate to have to ask for help but some times I have to swallow my pride and reach out and ask for a little help If we can get some help she can have her surgery earlier but this will also help for after surgery since she will be off work for a while thank you for reading my plea and  please if anyone can help I would be forever great full and know that one day I will pay it forward
