I would like to request your help. My precious mother is in need of care that her health insurance will no longer cover. She is in need of additional rehab (150.00 per day) to strengthen her leg after a nasty break and her rehab days have run out.

July 4, 2013, mama fell and broke the distal femur in her right leg. She had surgery and a metal plate was installed in her leg to repair the break. She came through this surgery and rehab pretty well and was able to return to assisted activity. In April of this year she began to experience a strange feeling as though her leg was collapsing under her. When she went to the doctor to have it checked, it was discovered that the hardware in the leg had broken. There had been no falls or additional injuries to cause this so it was a complete surprise. Here we go again, another surgery within a year. After the surgery to repair the leg again, mama went to rehab, spent about 2 and a half weeks there and was doing very well until they stepped her down to a different rehab facility/nursing home. At this rehab home she was neglected to the point of almost dying. After not even one week she was taken back to the hospital with an extremely low pulse rate and blood pressure and an extremely high potassium level. After recovering from this setback she was transferred to another rehab facility. The same thing happened again, with the addition of a severe UTI. All the while, rehab days were ticking down. After about a month in the hospital (this stay), we sent her to a fourth rehab facility. This one was actually the best one of all but by now she only had a couple of weeks left of paid rehab. On Saturday, July 12th mama came home from rehab. By Wednesday, July 16th she was again in a disoriented state. She has now been in the hospital for over two weeks and the doctor wants to send her back to rehab (she needs it but has no days left). After all of the continued interruptions to her rehab she is still unable to stand for more than a few seconds. I have never felt as helpless as I do now, not being able to provide the best for my aging mother who always provided the best for me.

I am reaching out to you and I respectfully ask that you consider contributing for her care. I want to be able to give my mother the opportunity to heal and strengthen as well as she can and remain under responsible care so she can achieve the best possible recovery. Thank you so much for your prayerful consideration. God bless any help you may give. No gift is too small and it will not go unappreciated. I will forever praise God for the help you give. Thank you so much.
