I normally keep my blog here for information about my writing, but today I’m writing about something very personal, and hoping that some of you might be able to help…
I truly wish I didn’t have to do this, because I feel like a failure in struggling to provide for my husband, but the time has come to ask for help. The medical bills we faced for John this year after his sudden leg amputation and heart and vision issues have been staggering, even with insurance. There’s still so much financially in regards to his care that is not covered and John has still not been approved for disability benefits. In January, our out-of-pocket insurance premiums will start all over again and I’m still paying bills for this year. I’m hoping to raise $2,000 which will cover our maximum out-of-pocket costs for all of 2019. Knowing I at least have the premiums paid for will be a huge burden lifted and I can concentrate on the other expenses John will need for his ongoing care. If by some miracle we raise more than $2,000 the rest will be put toward a motorized wheelchair for him, which will make it so much easier for him to get around when we want to be out for a longer period of time.
I can’t thank all of you enough for your tremendous outpouring of love and support for John this past year. It’s meant the world to both of us!
