During my second, third hospital stay? my daugter set up a GoFundMe fundraiser, and – being cogent – I told her to take it down. She did. But the first 2-3 days of my last hospitilization, “I wasn’t all there” puts it mildly. I’m currently on short-term disability, and I need a replacement liver. My health insurance is great, but there’s only so much it covers so my wife told her to fire it back up again.
She raised $10,140 over a very short period, almost exclusively from readers of this blog. Other bloggers such as Say Uncle (and I don’t have a complete list) linked to it. Lots of encouraging comments were left with the donations, along with a lot of praise for the contents of this blog.
All I can say is, I’m humbled and grateful for all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my soul. Thank you for letting me join this tribe, where I have met, both online and in meatspace, some of the finest human beings anyone could ever know.
“Thank you” is inadequate for what I feel, but it’s the best I can do.
