The Fall of Elmer Herron a Fallen Soldier
This was the fall of a US Army Disabled Veteran that began with a stroke earlier in his life, 20 years later causing him to limp that later had a Blood sugar crisis, that precipitated his downward spiral to dementia, then infections that lead to gangrene, and less than six months later death.
It was the blood sugar crisis that lead me to take care of my uncle and the using of three (3) his credit cards, and all of his money to maintain his care since he lived in Chicago, and I live in Alabama. It cost me my life and almost destroyed my marriage.
Now I am trying to rebuild my marriage, my life, after traveling back and forth hiring caregiver after caregiver, and eventually having to take over as main caregiver with my wife. After 5 years of ups and downs, taking my uncle and my mother n law with us on vacations to Jamaica, and finally his feet were infected because at this time he could not talk, or walk, and was total care. We had to do everything in the last two (2) years till his death.
Now his debts both medical, healthcare contracts and all the other bills incurred during the bout of my endeavor to take care of my uncle, also a Veteran of the US Army. Right now I am stuck with his credit card bills and the bad credit for being a secondary card holder. The medical bills and the liabilities following the 5 year responsibility to care for my uncle lock stock and barrel. All reflecting $49, 800.00
