My Hubby, Mike or Stacy (His first name is Stacy, middle name Michael---He goes by both names but he has always been Stacy to me) is having open heart surgery this Friday to repair is Mitral Valve. When I married him 18 1/2 years ago, I never in my wildest dreams thought we would be having to deal with this...
After losing his job last year before Christmas, he was finally able to get another. It hasn't been easy catching up after that, but we get by living on one income while I take Mayson to therapies, etc. Unfortunately, his new job does not offer any vacation or disability, etc. So, while he recovers from his upcoming surgery, we will have no income!!! Can you say stress??? Poor Stacy is not worried about his surgery. He feels good about it but what is killing him is the whole financial piece of it. I guess its the CPA in him.
We have some wonderful family and friends who have put together a silent auction for us to our surprise!!! All we can say is WOW and swallow our pride! We are usually the ones on the giving side so its hard to watch everyone doing something for YOU. All we can say is thank you!!!
The Silent Auction is October 17th, at St. John Lutheran Church in Ely, from 4pm-7pm.
If you would like to donate something for the silent auction, make a donation or have any questions please contact Angie at gigishiba@gmail.com
Hugs to you all!
