I haven't updated much, and for that I apologize. Here is the latest - and it isn't good news.
"Three weeks ago, my husband, Attila, had a pacemaker installed. We were expected the best, as part of what we discussed with the doctor. Since then, Attila has gotten sicker and sicker. Previously his heart was performing at 55%-60% on ejection (which is healthy), now he is closer to 40%. All this week he has had fainting issues, and the meds are making him ill. We also learned that the group that has been paying for our rent had a change to their grant (Illinois funding issues), and as of October 31st, they will no longer support us. I am going to say it----I am feeling desperate, as we used to get by with furniture refinishing, but with Attila ill, we have not been able to work on anything in a while. We need to raise two months of rent, as it will take us that much time to find another option or to try and get Attila back into better shape. I am asking people to donate, share, and pray. We have not been in this poor a condition since the start of the heart issues, and I know the stress is hurting Attila, as he feels responsible for providing. We need financial help with rent as much as I need it to help Attila feel more confident. He has hit a low point today, when the test results came in, and he feels quite ill. We need prayer and we need assistance. God has been so good to us for this long, and we need another 2-3 months of help to take the pressure off of Attila."
