My husband is a hard working Man he supports our family of 5 on his income. I stay home with the kids for now because the cost of child care is too high for 3 children. My husband works every single day with chronic sinus infections and severe asthma. At only 30 he has had 4 surgeries to help this situation. He takes prednisone every day to be able to breathe because of his illness. Long story short. Last year we filed for bankruptcy (yay to a new start) only to start this year off really rough. My youngest son and I were in a car accident in February, we are ok but this was the tip of the iceberg. Right after the car accident my husband moved his position at work into the union in hopes to provide a better life for our family - which would leave us without health insurance for 600 hours worth of work. Work has been slow and he is just about a month away from getting the insurance. Well on June 1st my son snapped his arm in half at school, and then just last week my husband stayed in the hospital all week due to very bad virus. I have racked up what little credit we have trying to just feed our family and keep the utilities on while work has been slow for him and no he went a week with no work. This isn't a life or death situation but were just trying to stay afloat since we are not in the position to file another bankruptcy. Any help would be appreciated. The broken arm bill is 5,000 and My husbands stay in the hospital is about 10,000 plus the ambulance and paying down the credit cards I've had to use to make up for lost income.
