THE STORY Dan has been in and out of the hospital for the last 3 months. It started off with a simple surgery to his neck to get his C4 -C5 /C5-C6 Fusion done. But unfortunately they sent him home the same day he had surgery. Then the next day he developed a blood clot.  of course we did not realize what was going on until it became an extreme emergency. I brought him to the emergency room where they had tried to Do Tracheotomy on him  but was unsuccessful. he was then flown by helicopter to a different hospital but not before he bled out in a helicopter and had to have a blood transfusion. after spending two weeks on a ventilator he finally woke up. but our nightmare was not over yet. He then got so weak from not eating or drinking he lost 71 pounds since His surgery. Then we couldn't get his home health to come and visit because nobody would take the Medicaid. so once again he landed in the hospital.  so of course with me taking time out of work the bills started to pile up so now we're trying to play catch-up with our bills. Butt his oxygen has to come first. As he is starting to get very depressed because he has lost so much freedom trying to carry them big tanks around and always tripping over it. Daniel is such a good guy there isn't a soul who knows them that doesn't like him. he is constantly volunteering for somebody or something. a couple years back he was donating his time at the Humane Society 4 five or six hours a day. but because he has Ms the Heat was too much for him.  where most people would quit he decided to find another place to volunteer his time. So now he volunteers at the Bayfront care hospital and Brooksville as a Chaplain. and has been known to spend 10 to 12 hours a day volunteering his time. just to give a little idea of how this man operates if that's not enough. he also has a food Ministry that he has been doing for the last eight or nine months. what he does with that is he goes around to all the very poor neighborhoods and delivers food to the needy. and then he carries MREs with him in the truck wherever we go because when he sees a homeless person he'll turn around and make sure they have something to eat. this is all very very true and unexaggerated. so I am going to do everything in my power to get him his oxygen that he so desperately deserves thank you for reading this post. and thank you all so much in advance
