THE STORY:

I wasn't sure about this but there were a couple out there that told me to " go for it. The most that will happen is nothing".  So I am going to go for it.     Most of the people I know don't have a lot of money and are struggling to pay the bills the same as I am.  I don't expect anyone to donate something they do not have and appreciate anything that is donated.    For those that know me, you all know that I usually do not ask anyone for anything.  But it has come to the point in life that I have to swallow my pride and ask for help.  I am here asking for a donation for my past and future medical bills.  As most, if not all of you, know that I recently had a double by pass at Spectrum.  Everything is going good so far.  My stay was 7 days.  About average.  The pain is still there and the doc says well be there for at least 7 weeks, untill the breast bone heals and the ribs reheal. ( They were broken before and they moved them during surgery that causes more pain.)   Once I heal completely they want to start on my leg problems ( PVD ) and the adbominal anuersium.  Both of my femoral arteries are blocked.  The right completely and the left is partial.  The 2 surgeries I had on the left did help to a degree, but needs to  have a graft put in to connect the femoral arteries to the aortic artery to give me flow to both legs again.  Once this is done I should not have any more vascular issues.  The reason I am asking for donations is the operations I had to have were " not in network " so I have a deductable of about 50% .  I have not recieved the bill yet, but I did see the itemized statement which was $69k plus the doc's bill of almost $9k.  Than on top of these I still have the bill from The Jewish hospital in Kentucky where I had the emergeny fem/pop and stayed just 3 days.  This was over $56k, which I have been paying on.  The next surgery should be either at St. Mary's or Metro which are both in network so will not cost as much, as long as there are no problems. I do not feel good about asking for donations, so forgive me if I offend you, but it is something I have to do at this time.  Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you in advance for your help!
