I went into the V.A. hospital for an emergency quadruple heart bypass. Most people are out in 5-7 days. I was in there 7 months total and it was 18 months before I could go back to work. They made so many mistakes. From what I understand I almost died three times. Before all that I had a successful property management and remodeling company. I lost everything I owned including my home, vehicle and my businesses. Still I feel blessed knowing the Lord is not finished with me. Now I am living in a cheap motel and eating $1 burgers and burritos. I never know if this week is my last to be able to stay in the motel. I am now 100 lbs overweight and my diabetes is out of control from eating junk food. With the money I hope to raise with your help I will get myself am apartment, some furniture and pay my truck up to date. Then I'm getting with a dietician/fitness person here who has agreed to help me at a reduced rate. The doctors tell me if I can get this weight off and start eating right I will most likely get off my medications. I am doing whatever small remodel project I can to keep things going. I refuse to get on food stamps and welfare. It has always been my belief that we help each other. I've always tried to do that myself. With the balance of the money I want to get my business back up and going. I was a success once and I can do it again. All of my life I have worked hard, paid my way and tithed. Now I find myself on the other side of the equation. It's been a humbling experience. If this is what the Lord wants me to do then the flood gates will open. If not then I know he will direct me. There are a lot of people in need. If you choose not to contribute to my situation I understand but please help someone. You will be blessed in doing so. I would like to be around when my grand kids are born. That is my greatest wish here on earth. Thank you and Good bless.
