Amy Ezra Bradford  NEW PORT RICHEY, FL
Recently my husband was medically retired from the Army due to disablilities. He served in the Army for over 8 years, including 2 tours in Iraq totally 27 months, and countless hours away for training. We are a family of 8 including 6 children. The transition to civilian work has been very difficult. He was and is good great soldier, father and husband. He sacrificed time with his family to serve this country. We are currently behind on almost every bill we have. We do jot normally ask for help but everything has become so far behind thst we are desperate. Anything no matter how small will be greatly appreciated.

We haven't updated latley so I wanted to let everyone know how things are.
Alan is doing better, he has been guaranteed a job at walmart do to them wanting to hire veterans. They did say it could take 2 weeks to find him a position, which would put him not getting any pay for about a month.
I was teaching, but due to some moral issues I had to leave there. I am now currently enrolled in school. Thankfully I am using alans GI bill, which will pay us housing allowance, but that will not take affect until December.
So things are looking up in the future at least. We have had so much help from everyone that we appreciate so much, unfortunately my parents are taking the brunt of the helping at the moment. We now owe them for 2 months of paying our water bill, and phone bill.
As much as we feel bad for asking for help, sadly it is our only choice until everything moves forward for the next month. Anything is appreciated beyond what words could say.

Hey everyone, it's been awhile since we have updated. So Alan is doing well. He had another siezure this past Sunday, he is no longer able to drive until he is cleared by neurology. I just started working as a preschool teacher. With school staring on August 24th down here, and having 4 kids going to school this year we are still struggling with the burden of all the school lists. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

Updat, Saturday evening Alan was rushed to the hospital following a series of several seizures, with one final grand mal siezure. He was admitted and stayed at the hospital for testing to include CT scan, and MRI of his brain as well as an EEG. They were finally able to get him stable and on a good medication. He is finally home with us again. Please continue to keep Alan and our family in your prayers. Alan has now been restricted from driving as well as needing assistance with many daily living tasks. All of your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

A new update for Alan and the family. Alans blood level is still creeping very slowly. He is still being required to have injections twice a day and they raised his dose of oral blood thinners again.
Alan finally got all of his medical paperwork from his month long stay in the VA hospital, he now has 21 additional diagnosis. We met with the VA to submit his new information, they said it could take up to a year for all of this to be added to his file.
I want to give a huge thank you again to everyone who has helped and shared. We appreciate everything, everyone has done for us.
