My husband and I are both in our mid 50s and for the last 15 years or so he has undergone about 20 surgeries for osteoarthritis.  He is currently having his 5th back surgery.  He suffers from chronic pain and has not worked since 1994.  I am the sole breadwinner and myself suffer from fibromyalgia.

Thank You
