Squeaky (as in Wheel) continues her odyssey through The Medical System, at least now getting actual diagnoses of actual Things Wrong They Can Fix, but as it turns out, the rule is "No bucks, no Dr. Kildare," too; it ain't just Buck Rogers you don't get for free.
She needs a hand and there's a lot of us, so the hat's being passed and it'd be a kindness to kick in if you can. For those as squeamish as I when it comes to details, the tl;dr version is, big, obvious problem requiring big, invasive surgery and long, low-activity recovery time. The good news it, it's all looking fixable. If you've followed even ten percent of her travails, you know what a huge improvement that is. Barring a solid-gold meteorite in her back yard (which they won't let her lift anyway), she needs our help to get through this.
