Upon waking up and unable to move my right leg my wife called 911 to get an ambulance to take me to the hospital.  

While hooking me up to all the monitors they discovered an irregular heartbeat, called atrial fibrillation. Ran a bunch of heart tests, gave me medication and got it under control. Then started trying to figure out what was wrong with my knee. Took x-ray, did ultrasound and some other tests and couldn't find anything. Extracted a bunch of fluid from the knee, took a bunch of blood samples and ran some tests. After a few days was told there was no infection. Physical therapy started working with me. Couldn't stand or put any weight on my leg. Did various leg exercises while sitting to start getting strength back. The next day I was able to stand briefly using a walker for support. This week am being transferred to a different part of the hospital for rehab. It's not been a good time recently. 

I have now been in the hospital for 11 days and once transferred to rehab it will be an additional 2 weeks. My wife has taken time off work for which she doesn't get paid. I know that things are tough all over but if you can help with anything I would appreciate it more than you know. Thank you all in advance for any help you can provide. I love you all.
