Please contact Thursday Girl if you have anything for this family.

What is your family situation?
I am a full-time student. My husband & I went through a separation last year & our family has been back together for a few months now. My husband was the only one working since I am in school full-time (graduate this coming spring!), but he is now unable to work due to health issues. He was in and out of the hospital for a month this summer, and finally ended up having extensive emergency exploratory surgery. His doctors have said that IF the surgery has been successful in fixing his medical issues the soonest he will be able to work is February. Currently our only income is his disability payments (which are significantly less then the amount he got when working). My ex-husband has been out of work for over a year, so we are not getting child support. Making ends meet is not easy, and we often have to juggle bills in order to not have utilities turned off. 

Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? No allergies in the famliy
