While Caring for My Wife After Her Knee Replacement, Our Water Heater Exploded. Please Help?

My Story:

We are a married couple with no children. I am employed full time in a large company's housekeeping department and my wife does not work due to a injured spinal injury. We love to spend as much time together as we can.

Not long ago, my wife began to have trouble walking. After seeing several doctors, found out that she'd need to have a total knee replacement. My health insurance covered the surgery but wouldn't help with any of the recovery expenses, so I had to take time off work to care for my wife. Because my leave was unpaid, we lost nearly a month's income. And then, at the worst possible time, our water heater exploded. We've been without hot water now for several weeks, and we've been to other charities but no one can help us because we don't have any kids in the house.

I hate to ask anybody for help, but the lack of hot water in the house is slowing down my wife's recovery (he knee needs to be in warm water at least once a day). So would you please consider helping us to replace our water heater? Your help would mean so so much to us during this time, not just because we'll have hot water again, but because it'll my wife to get well faster. Thank you for helping us if you can. Even thinking about us means a lot.
