Hi Everyone,

As many of you have heard, I re-injured my knee over the Thanksgiving Holiday. I and my family spent this morning in consultation with an orthopedic specialist, and the verdict is in: no getting around it, I need surgery for a torn ACL.

For any of you who know me and my family, you know my daughter turns 2 years old on December 17th, and my son will be 5-months this month.  And then, of course, there’s Christmas.

The point is, this injury could not have come at a worse time.  I’ve scheduled the surgery for January 4th, after the holidays. I haven’t worked long enough at my new job to qualify for insurance, or out-of-work assistance.  That leaves me with a knee that needs surgery and a few months to heal, but no safety net.  

With the price of medical bills, and faced with the prospect of perhaps as many as three or four months recovery time, it breaks my heart to know I will not, over the next few months, be able to provide for my two wonderful children as I should.  It is with that in mind that I, and my family, turn to our friends and family.  Our loved ones.  We’re faced with a tough situation, and frankly, we need your help.  My family and I appreciate anything any of you can do to help us through this trying holiday season.  And know that we love all of you.
