Out of Work

My husband has been out of work for the last month now. It's really hard to get by on just one income, when I have to pay for a sitter also. He's out due to a surgery he had to have back on the 4th of August.
It all started 2-3 weeks before I had Lillian. He was complaining about pain in is rectal area. It got so bad that we went to the ER. Well they determined he had an abscess. They lanced it, and it was good for the next few months. Then the first weekend in June, it came back. We went to the hospital had it lanced again. At that point the doctor said it could be more. Turns out he had a really bad case of Roids. The worst the doctor has ever seen. So on top of the abscess he now has hemorrhoids.
They decided to go into surgery on the 4th of August. They removed the hemorrhoids with no problem but could not find where the abscess was. A week after surgery he thought it was getting infected. Nope he got the abscess back. Now he has a fistula. So on the 15th of Aug, he went back in for removal of the fistula. They removed a portion and he has to go back on the 19th of Sept. to remove the remainder.
We figure 2 weeks after that he might be able to go back to work, but that would only be for 4 weeks. He works seasonally and his job doesn't get any business after October.
Frustration has really set in for me. We can't pay bills, we can't buy groceries like we used to. We can't even get our girls the clothes they will be needing real soon. The weather here is about to switch to cool.
Thanks for letting me vent.
