FLOYD R CLARK, AMERICAN SOLDIER a Hero who served our country , fought for our freedom his entire life . Over 40 years in the Army and National Guards . He never asked for help. He was always the one, that everybody went to, for help !!! He taught our service men how to change a tire on a tanked while getting shot at !! He taught them how to inject themselves with morphine , in case they were fatally shot . Now this man who I call Dad, a good man to my mother , a gentleman and a protector and provider has now become terminally ill . He was always so busy helping others , He neglected to take care of his own medical financial affairs, needs and neglected to have his own plan of action or agenda for the ""just in case's"" that he be stRIckEN with illness. . He s been suffering with diaBETES vertigo, and alZHEIMERS and now dEMENTIA . Recently he fell and fractured his back and put a huge hole in his head that the doctors stapled closed . We brought him home AFTER A SHORT STAY AT THE HOSPITAL. for him to continue to try and do things on his own and he fell again .!!This time cracking three ribs and damaging his kidneys . This is a man that CAN take soooo much pain !!1 NEVER COMPLAIN , NEVER .That he told my mother he was a little uncomfortable that he may need to go see a doctor for a slight stomach ache. wHEN IN REALITY HE HAD CRACKED RIBS AND INJURED HIS KIDNEYS AND NOW HAS tROUBLE SWALLOWING FOOd , MUST BE PUREED. hE ALSO INJURED HIS BLADDER AND IS HAVING TO HAVE Catheter WITH A BAG. IF ALL THIS ISN'T ALREADY EGO DEFLATING AND HUMBLING AND EMBARRASSING . .He so much loves my mother as he not want to concern her with how seriously sick and injured he has been . I have the utmost respect for this man I call Dad. He is so self-less and kind . But he is also couragEOUS and strong . He requires In home care nursing . My mother is incapable of providing the care he needs SHES OLD TOO. . She afford the amount of money its gonna cost to either keEp him IN HIS HOME . home (which is the only place he wants to be and with my mom) we CANT AFFORD TO PUT HIM IN convAlesCEnt/rehabilitation HOSPITAL. HE REQUIRES HELP WITH WALKING , AND GETTING DRESSED AND BATHING , EATING ETC.. TAKING HIS MEDICATION TO DO JUST THE BASICS . THE THINGS WE TAKE FOR GRATED EVERYDAY.. He is currently IN A REHABILITATION BUT , but health insurance only covers 20 days, AND IT WILL BE 20 DAYS HERE SHORTLY. ) he needs long term care . So, I am asking this Nation of people to help ONE OF OUR SOLDIERS . FINANCIALLY AFFORD TO BE ABLE TO Live the remainder of his Life in the comfort OF HIS OWN HOME WITH family . i THINK ASKING FOR 70K IS JUST A SMALL AMOUNT COMPARED TO WHAT THE WE MOST LIKELY WILL HAVE TO PAY .AND COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH HIS DETERIORATING HEALTH. AND TO PROVIDE HIM WITH IN HOME CARE. PLEASE DO THIS FOR HIM DO THIS FOR GOD DO THIS FOR WHATEVER . BUT REMEMBER HE DIDN'T TAKE OUR LIVES FOR GRANTED WHEN HE FEARLESSLY BATTLED FOR US TO HAVE THE THINGS WE HAVE NOW. HE IS A TRUE HERO . AND DESERVES US TO SHOW HIM , HIS TIME IN THE SERVICE WAS NOT IN VEIN .LETS SHOW HIM WE CARE .
