Why and how the funds will help
I am raising money for my mother to have a home built with a ramp on her land so that she has a home to come home too since she lost hers when she became sick. My mother was in the hospital for almost 2 months so their are a lot of bills that needs to be paid medically. she began at conway regional hospital and we had her transfered to uams in little rock were we could get answers. when she got out of the hospital we had to have her admitted in a long term facility nursing home because she requires 24/7 care and since she and my father no longer had a home to go too.. I applied for her to recieve disability since she always had 2 or 3 jobs but they said it still would take up to 6 months.
Linda Wallace Full Story
My mother has always been the one who was strong in the family. My father wasn’t good in reading and understanding things well but he could work on cars and figure out what’s wrong with it with no problem. He also use to work at Virco manufacture until they gave him the option to early retire because they were laying off people. He took his retirement and applied it to the land. He continued to work on cars and my mother worked at department of human services in Conway Arkansas in the day and she was a police officer for Menifee at night. Some of her cases she would help them with furniture, cars, or anything they needed for their home to keep their child in a safe environment. She also would do drug screens and anger management classes. My mother was a very giving, loving, and caring woman but she was also stern in many ways. She always means what she say and says what she means. She also was a very religious woman and she attend church every Wednesday and twice on Sunday. My mother knew the bible like the back of her hand and she would teach the word of god to everyone she meets. Everyone leaned on her and if we didn’t know the answer we knew she would know what to do. If a person didn’t have she made sure they did have it. On Sundays she would take everyone out to eat and pay for the bill even if it was a hundred people. That’s just the type of person she was puts everyone ahead of herself. If we were out doing something as a family and her job would call that ended the family event. One day she took off work which we thought was time for her to have a break to herself, but days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months. She had a pad lock on her room door so we didn’t have the key but my father did but he respect her wishes not to be bothered because she said it was between her and God. He knew for awhile she was at least eating because food would be missing out of the fridge when he got home from working on a car. He ask that one of the church psycartrist to come speak with her and she start to get better we thought because she came out to go to church. Then within a week or two she went back into the room, cut the phone off and locked herself in again in the room with just her bible. She was 260 pounds before she locked herself in the room but a couple months went by and something said go check on her. My mother was skin and bones all you could see was her skeleton structure. I was a emotional wreck and I let my father know that if he let her stay in that room and she dies he could go to jail knowing she had got sick. He thought she was really fasting because she said it was between her and God so he tried to respect that thinking when she was done she would be normal again. You could hear her trying to vomit but nothing would come out because she wouldn’t eat or drink anything. Then one morning my father knocked on her room to let her know he was going to work on a car but she didn’t respond. So he got into the room and she wasn’t responding so he got her to the hospital. The hospital said she was 150 pounds and if my father didn’t get her there she would have died by Sunday. She was in a mental retardation state and her eyes moved back and forth real quick. My family was torn apart. I tried to get all the bills together to see what need to be paid but there was more bad news. My mother stop paying bills in January and here it was July. Needless to say they lost the house but we save the land it was a manufactured home. They got the home in 1999 and here it was 2014 and the house is lost, medical bills stacking up because she was in the hospital for a month and then they moved her to a nursing home because she need 24/7 care. I got a storage in my name to put all their items in from the house. I have applied for disability but we still haven’t heard anything. My dad stays in a rv that they had and he goes to see her every day. We plan on bringing her home whenever she has a home to come home too. It would have to have a ramp because she is on a walker now and a nurse would have to come possibly do check ins on her. She has Wernickies due to malnutrition which also cause memory loss and other major problems. We pray she is able to get back to her normal self and able to have a home to come home too. I anyone could help us it would mean the world to us. The bible say's it is better to give than to recieve and lord knows my mother has did more than her share in her lifetime and i ask that others can do the same for her so she knows that all her hard work has paid off even if she can't remember everything due to wernicke's syndrome. Thanks Again!
