Maizie's rare disorder, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, is causing serious problems again. Without surgery soon, she may not be able to use her left leg! Due to fragility & difficulty with healing, no surgeon in SD has performs this procedure. For this reason, Maizie and I will be flying to Cincinnati soo . . CUT! STEP BACK! The venue is changing. We needed more stress in our lives?!
Maizie's had bone & joint problems for years. She had a shoulder reconstructed last April & began losing her knee in Aug, just 2 wks after she finished shoulder rehab! That's when this 5'9",15 yr old b-ball star was told to "hang up her Jordans!"
4 yrs ago I lost my job. With the loss of a job comes the loss of insurance. I was quite ill myself for a couple of years. I am well now and have since been searching for work. Perhaps the good fortune of not having a "real" job is I've been available for her many doctor & phys therapy appt's, and to help her trudge thru her piles of homework. When I can, I substitute teach. The state gives us some assistance. We are grateful for that! Still, we have much medical debt & this trip will be at least a few weeks, and once again she's been put on hold. There is travel, lodging, food, follow up, and the bills won't stop at home.
It is hard to ask for financial help, when most of us are struggling at this time. Of all people, I understand. If you feel comfortable sharing this with friends, please do so. I understand if donating is just too difficult. All peaceful loving thoughts sent our way, are genuinely equally as valuable.
