Good evening WUAH! I hope your 'First day of Summer' was
incredible!! Mine was not so great.
My husband hurt his back on June 3rd pretty badly. Unfortunately we
were away from home that week, and couldn't get him to the DR until
we got home on the 11th. Our DR felt it was very severe and sent
him for an MRI.
Long story short, the MRI revealed that Kenny has a badly ruptured
disc in his back, as well as many bulging discs & degenerative
disease (he is only 26). He has had no feeling or reflexes in his
leg since the 3rd, and his been unable to move his foot.
Today we learned that he needs "Immediate Spinal Surgery" to repair
the damage, otherwise he will be paralyzed in that leg and foot
forever. His surgery will be tomorrow, Friday, or Monday. We aren't
He has already missed 20 days of work, and will be out of work for
several months. He is our ONLY income as I am disabled (and waiting
for disability). We've started the process for short term
disability for him, but it won't be nearly enough to cover us and
takes awhile to start.
I'm wishing for ANY help you can provide. $1, $5, $10, whatever.
Anything will help! We have a house, car, utilities, pets, and
ourselves to pay for. We also will have co-pays and medications.
Our bank account is dwindling and the fridge is running out. As a
vegetarian with Celiac, I have been eating a LOT of pasta because
it's cheap, and it's making me sick. I need to be strong for my
husband, and he needs to build strength after surgery! I also will
need to eat at the hospital. We applied for food stamps but were
denied because he got a check June 1. We will reapply in July, but
that's still many days. We are going to the pantry tomorrow.
If there is anything you can do to help us, I would so greatly
appreciate it. I don't believe I've ever felt so broken, and I've
never heard him so defeated. We just need help.
Thank you all for listening! I do have a Paypal card,
