As many of you know, Walter went from working and being fine one day to being near death the next.  In that process of having pneumonia and being on a ventilator and then having two blood clots to his lungs, he was left with neurological problems that have yet to be understood.  His neurologist beleives that he has some type of auto immune process that is attacking his cerebellum.  The insurance company is denying the treatment and we are appealing.  We are now 5 months into this journey.  Walter went from the hospital to an inpatient rehab hospital for 2 1/2 months.  He then has bee hospitalized twice and currently is in a short term nursing home rehab program in Portland, ME.  He is in a wheelchair and learning to walk, talk, etc (cognitive repair).  We have to pay a lot of money out of pocket each month to keep him insured.  He has been approved for disability but will not get insurance for 2 years.  His treatment is expensive.  He will only get back functioning through the intense process of physical, occupational and speech therapy. 

We must sell our home.  We cannot afford it nor does it work for us any longer.  We cannot use the second floor.  

We are downing and really could use any support that you can give.  All the small stuff adds up!  I cannot thank you enough for even reading this, for praying for us and all the acts of kindness that have been given to us.  We love you!
