It is wonderful that you wrote here Hubshraubear! Everything is going to get better. You will be in my prayers and God is grand.

As another suggestion for income: German classes online.

Best luck with getting that leg better really fast.

Over 1500 views, and very few donations, the total stands at just over 500 US, and much of that was before this Baja Nomad post.
This is a big and caring community, I don’t understand. Even a few dollars would undoubtably make a big difference in this man’s life. Please consider making a donation, or if you can’t, god bless and maybe you could share the info with others who might?

I added $ to the pot today. Paypal made me use an echeck so it will take a few days to process. Good luck in all your problems.

I also would like to see more contributions but it appears you are under estimating nomad contributions in the past few days. Over $500 of the current contributions have been from members of this board. Perhaps you don't recognize the names since they may vary from user names here. You are correct that small contributions can add up quickly and I certainly hope to see more. I am fortunate that I have a good support network of family and friends should I ever need it but there are many good people who don't. A small misfortune or two can upend an otherwise stable life. I know I can't save the world but I can certainly kick in $20 here and there to those in need.

It is like in politics - the "candidate" has to be likable. He has to have a full name. Pictures with grandkids and or dogs help tremendously.
Short story why you are getting homeless suffices.

There has to be cry for help. When you ask, people will help.

Throwing out pictures of rotting legs will scare people away.

Getting help has become an art.

Guten tag herr Hubschraubear ,

Rice and beans ? Oh Man that's brutal .... I'm sure there is no beer budget and for a German that's sacrilege .....

So with that in mind, I am willing to donate again with the condition that it is spent solamente para a good meal and some beer .. ( not necessarily in that order )

Do we have a deal ?




Since I've given up all hope, I feel much better

Hubschraubear

I don't know if you are interested but I have used ozone therapy to help many a patient keep their limbs as well as heal super fast.

While this device is not quite as potent as the one I used in my clinic it is still effective.

https://www.amazon.com.mx/Ozonizador-Desinfecta-Deodoriza-Po...

I am willing to pay for and ship this unit to you if you are interested.

Do your homework on ozone therapy and U2U me if interested

If you have more pressing needs I am happy to make a monetary donation instead

Don't quit,
Anthony

So now you have a Nomad family, Ozone therpay is well repected. Also, better nutrtion, protein, a fresh vegetable daily perhaps an egg every day would be good also. Seems likely that Maria needs some essentials also. I will send $20 bucks next week. Use as you think best,
Hugs, your Buena Vista sister, Joanna

Is that somewhat better for starters?

We not done yet and try to provide as much info as possible without making it a long bloob to read.
Also with the images - we know they are gross and graphical and may shy people away. We try to thing of a solution.
Any feedback is welcome


You really really need to lose the photos of the leg. Maybe one healing shot...only

I disagree. I think the photos of the leg show the severity.

Thanks for taking the time to answer us one by one.

I like that you included a picture of yourself and one of you and your fiance .
It may be good to have one of you in a wheelchair , crutches or you struggling to walk ?

I would think the photos of you should be be up further in your photo sequence. Too many of the only the leg, people may not go far enough to see you.
