This has been a very trying 4 months for my family. My granddaughter was born 2 months premature in Nov. and spent over a month in NICU. While she was in the NICU, my daughter developed a life-threatening infection shortly after delivery and was herself in ICU fighting for her life. I spent over a month going between hospital rooms to be with both of them.
In December, both my daughter and granddaughter were finally home from the hospital, my granddaughter was thriving, and my daughter was continuing to heal from her infection. She had a wound vac and needed daily antibiotics injected into a midline. I was over every day to help her out, as her boyfriend went to work.
Also at that time, my brother, whom I live with, underwent back surgery. He did well with the surgery, however, developed complications later on and has not been able to return to work. I was spending my time back and forth taking care of all of them. I, myself, had to stop working to do so.
In Feb. as my daughter, her boyfriend, and their daughter, were finally looking forward to settling down and beginning their new life together as a young family, when my daughter’s boyfriend was in a horrific motorcycle accident, dragged under a car, and was dead at the scene. They were able to revive him, but he is now in the hospital and we have been told that he will be a quadriplegic. I once again had to stop working to move in temporarily with my daughter, to help her out.
Since my daughter was a high-risk pregnancy, she was put on bed rest in Sept and has not yet been able to return to work. Her boyfriend was the breadwinner of the family so, at this time they have no income coming in. Between taking care of her daughter and visits daily to the hospital to see her boyfriend, this has taken a toll on my daughter, mentally, emotionally, physically, and now financially. It has also taken a toll on my bank account, as I have not been able to work except as a caregiver to my family.
My daughter and granddaughter are being forced to move from their apartment because they are not able to pay the rent. I cannot help them as I am not able to pay the rent on the apartment I live in, as I, nor my brother, have been working. To make matters worse, in the middle of all of this, I too had a car accident that totaled my car and I sustained some injuries. I do not have a car right now, so I am dependent on my daughter when I need to go to physical therapy.
I know this all may sound unreal, and trust me, I wish it was, but unfortunately, it is not the plot of some movie, it really is my life. Although it is awkward and uncomfortable to have to ask for help, my family has no money coming in and soon will have no place to live either. We may all be living in the streets.
We need help with money for rent and for other bills such as the utilities and a car payment. It hurts to have to ask, but my family is the most important thing to me. Please help out, no matter what size donation, it is all appreciated.
