Zaks hospital stay & recovery fund

**Please read bottom update thanks

Hi all its Zak and LA, sadly we have come to a difficult time in our life and this is very difficult for us to write but after much poking and proding by a few we feel it must be done.

On Wednesday Feb 7, 2018 as some of you may and many may not know Zak will be undergoing brain surgery (insert jokes here lol). The surgery is to relieve pressure off of his Trigeminal nerve cause by a damaged artery, Zak has what is called Trigeminal Neuragia (Learn about Trigeminal Neuralgia ).

Zak has been diagnoised with Trigeminal Neuragia for approximitley 5 years and has tried all options. Which included the gamma knife (which did not work at all), weekly chiropractor visits, and taking the maximum amount of meds allowed by the FDA, and on top of it the doctors have given him pain killers which have barely taken the edge off. He has fought the inevitable but sadly can no longer deal with the pain, which not only hurts at times, almost unbearable (after they don't call it the suicide disease for nothing) but also interferes with work and life. Not to mention the meds he is on causes brain fog, loss of short term memory, weight gain and just bad chemicals in his body.

After the surgery Zak will have a long road to recovery if all goes without a hitch; 12 weeks. During those 12 weeks Zak will have 0 income.

When it comes to asking for help especially for money I am not one to ever do so but I can not put the burden on LA's shoulders she doesn't need the stress. I do not need a lot just enough to cover the big bills (mortgage, etc.)

So if you find it in your heart to donate a couple dollars today I will forever be grateful as will my family. If you can not donate please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, which we always welcome.

Thank you so much.

*Update - Surgery was a success, Zak was released Saturday Feb 10 only to get home for less than 30 mins and suffer a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage. This is where a vessel ruptured and had a brain bleed. He was rush back and spent 5 days in ICU in and out of conscientious. Finally was stable and awake to be downgraded from ICU and now going home. He is on strict bed rest, no driving, we’ll not much of anything. Being self employed will be out of work until cleared which may take 4 months. Sadly we will struggle on one income and ask again for your help. We believe God will provide so any amount is much appreciated even just love, thoughts and prayers. We know in the end 2018 will become a most amazing year it has just started a bit bumpy. Thanks again for all you love and support we wouldn’t make it with out you all.
