Their mother is making many improvements on their home and is working hard to meet their needs, but her plate is filling up quickly, and their medical appointments are taking up much of the family's current income. On top of that, mom has gotten 3 months behind on her credit card payments, which is adding additional stress to the family during this time of grieving their loss.
