Chris is undergoing a heart procedure tomorrow

He wrote this earlier:

"I'm in the hospital right now... In six days, the plan year resets, and I may not have had this heart thing resolved by then. If we don't have $1900  for the new insurance plan, we lose coverage entirely. Then there's the $4,000 in rent and other bills. And the $2,000 in deductible... and the $4,000 more in max out of pocket.

... and here I am in a hospital bed, with no way to make any of it..

Mel means well... but she's so ashamed of, and panicked by, fundraising, that she stops the INSTANT we get exactly enough to cover whatever emergency there is right then... she can't make herself keep going until we' actually get OUT of crisis mode, and have enough to cover the outstanding stuff on the horizon.

... and they still haven't scheduled my surgery yet... at this point it will most likely be february, but that's not scheduled or confirmed. Meanwhile I still have growing cancer.

Oh and by the by... there was a second nodule in my lung, and possibly a third... they saw them on the CT with contrast they did on admission the other day.

They originally thought that the first nodule probably wasn't cancerous, because there easy just one, and not several or a cluster. Well, now that there's a second nodule and maybe more, there's there's a much better chance it IS cancerous... if we're lucky it's just a leftover from having pneumonia and bronchitis for a couple months, because if it's cancerous... thats... really very bad.

... and we still don't have the boy back.

Merry Christmas everyone... take what joy and love you can... because there may be times that you cant."

I've still got a GoFundMe going BUT it takes days to clear so if it is at all possible to use PayPal (chris@chrisbyrne,com) or Messenger Payments that is much faster.

Thanks all,
