Hey everyone, here is an update: Allen has been moved to acute care in Albuquerque. He has heart failure which was caused by the infection. He is still very sick and is still unable to see or walk. The stitches and staples from his brain surgery have been removed. He will have a heart test in aboutw 2 weeks to see if the infection is still present.

My mother and father live in New Mexico with no other family close by. In 2011 my father, Allen Vaughn, was hospitalized. My brothers and I loaded up the car and hit the road to New Mexico to be with him. He had to have a heart valve replaced. We were all very worried, but he pulled through.

Last year in December, right before Christmas, my father got very sick. He and my mother thought it was just the flu, so they just tried to treat it on their own. He then had a heart attack and a stroke. He was rushed to the hospital. From there he had a very large uphill battle to fight. The valve that was replaced in 2011 had become infected. The infection spread through his heart and his blood system. He lost his vision and can only see shadows. He has two blood clots in his brain and has already undergone one brain surgery to remove an abscess and some infection. The physical therapy people at the hospital have been working with him to get him to be able to stand and to walk, but with the sickness combined with his lack of vision is making it difficult for him.

My dad has been working since he was a young kid. Because of this recent episode he will probably never be able to go back to work again. He has been in the hospital for almost a month now and will need more time there and in physical rehab. With all the time he has been in the hospital and how much more he will need, our family has come in need of some financial help. His medical bills are only increasing. I have set up this donation page to hopefully help out both my parents and my family to pay for the help he needs. 

Anything you can donate would be very appreciated from our entire family.
