Pat's recovery funding

I never imagined having to reach out for financial help, until now. My husband had an accident on December 5, 2015. He broke his tibia and fiblia in his lower leg. He had surgery on December 9, 2015 where he had a rod and plate with screws placed. He had been on antibiotics from his surgery up until the end of July in which he had to have yhe plate removed because of a staph infection. They also removed the screws from the rod placed in his tibia. His orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Betcher, has been wonderful in keeping a very watchful eye on his healing and also reminded us that this was turning into a rare case of non-healing that for some reason has become more complicated. We are now having a third surgery on Tuesday July 26th. I have tried to work but it became to stressful since there is no one available to check on him throughout the day. He has nonbearing weight orders for this leg because xrays taken on Monday July 18th has shown a shift of his tibia. The top of his tibia has slipped down over the lower half of his tibia which is causing the top of the rod is pressing into his kneecap. So, as of now we are having surgery on Tuesday with traction to pull up the upper half of his tibia and have screws replaced. I have no doubt that God has took care of us this far and that he will continue to do so but we have no savings or medical insurance and our bills are not going to pay themselves. So I am swallowing my pride and asking my family and friends for some financial support. We are making several trips to Knoxville and he is taking several medications. He has applied for disability and we are waiting on an answer from them. We were just informed by them that it would probably be October before we received an answer. Our electric, water, and phone bills can't wait until then. Anything that you can give would be greatly appreciated. Prayers are greatly appreciated also. Many thanks for those willing to help and God bless :-)
