Hi Coe, its Lori from KNIGHT TERMITE..... I NEED YOUR HELP SO VERY BAD THAT I'M LITERALLY IN TEARS HERE.
On SATURDAY, 10/27/2012, while at my daughters golf tournament at SUN VALLEY GOLF COURSE ..... I FELL DOWN A STEEP INCLINE AND BROKE MY ANKLE IN 3 PLACES. I broke the tibia, but worse is the component that connects the tibia & fibula together, was FACING UPWARDS AND BACKWARDS, to boot ..... I managed to strip the ligaments on my fibula. DEVASTATED and IMMOBILE - I can not do any ACTIVITY or put any PRESSURE AT ALL on my leg for 12 WEEKS.
So NO WORK, NO INCOME, NO MEDICAL INSURANCE, NO FREEDOM, NO HOUSEHOLD CAPABILITIES and it's awful.
I would love to go to work, but I can't get up the stairs. I have to apply for State Disability which could take up to 45 days and you're not guaranteed to be approved. Even if I am, the payment is like $150/wk. AND my rent is $550, water $30, cable/internet/phone $150, SDGE $80, car insurance $100, not to mention food, gas, etc..... THIS SUCKS!
HOWEVER; there is this new walking apparatus called a KNEE WALKING SCOOTER. It has 4 wheels, handbrakes, about 6" wide x 10" long and has a groove built in specially for people who have limitations with their legs/knees or ankles. You literally put your knee at the front and go
of the seat, and use your other leg too scoot around, especially in tight areas, and i'll send a picture. Pretty clever aye?
My rented house has steps and using one of those ugly bulky granny silver walkers with the tennis balls DOES NOT WORK. In fact i've almost fallen twice tonite.
COULD YOU ASK YOUR LISTENERS ....... IF ANYONE HAS ONE OF THESE THEY'D BE WILLING TO RENT TO ME FOR $30.00 A MONTH? I wish I could ask if someone would loan me theirs and I'll return it in the same condition by February, but I feel awkward. I found a place down the road, but they want a $250.00 DEPOSIT and it rents by the month for $75.00 a MONTH. I don't have a credit card for the deposit (which they just hold and return after 1 month).
This would help me so much if I could borrow one till the end of January, if not sooner. I'm going to be 45 at the end of this month and this is the first bone breakage ever, and I don't wish it on anyone, (well maybe 1 or 2 people) lol.
As you I donated $250.00 of pest control to a family of 6, for Coe's List and now I really need help. So I'm hoping that a good deed might deserve someone's good deed, and I am PRAYING SOMEONE OUT THERE LISTENING TO KGB and THE BEST FEMALE DJ IN OUR COUNTY has listeners that can help me.
For now I'm wearing ONE OF HERMAN MUNTERS' BOOTS, the black boot with the metal bottom that weighs about 7 lbs. Like a CINDER BLOCK HANGING FROM MY KNEE and it's painful to hop around and sleep.
HERE'S MY INFO:
My name is Lori Hebert, and I live in El Cajon, Ca
45 years old and a single mom of a 12 yr old daughter who aspires to play with the women in the LPGA
Will take care of the walker and will return it in the condition it was given/loaned to me. Will even sign a written agreement to return in the same condition, and if I fault on the agreement, legal action may be taken by your listener.
My cell # (619) 804-8196. I'm able to drive too meet and talk with your listener.
This is my favorite time of the year, the HOLIDAYS. Now Im not able too cook, decorate my home for my daughter, shop for gifts (b/c I don't have an income), give gifts to my family, and it makes for a CRAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON if I end up hopping with a granny walker, and it's painful truthfully.
SO, OBVIOUSLY I'LL BE HOME UNTIL the END OF JANUARY 2013, so I hope tons of your loyal listeners are able to come through for me and my daughter, Morgan, that would be a CHRISTMAS I could at least try to enjoy. If not, well I wish you and your family the most beautiful of holiday seasons
