Family Emergency!

Help! 2/16/14, my dad collapsed and is in hospital. Since then, he's had an aortic valve replacement and a pacemaker. They doctors expect him to be out for six to eight weeks, perhaps longer. My dad has only a few days of sick leave, so after four days we won't have any income for bills and food while he's rehabbing. This is worrying him greatly especially since I cannot work because I'm chronically ill and my sister is mentally disabled. Any help whatsoever would be greatly appreciated and would help my dad during his recovery. Thank you! [The display image is from Friday night before.]

We also have a paypal address availible to those who feel safer using that. :)

Dad came home early in the week. He had a bladder infection with gastroenteritis. He's doing a lot better now and walking a lot more and easier! Turns out we won't be getting state disability though.

Back in hospital for hypoglycemia and hypothermia. Stable but undergoing tests. They think dad has an infection, so he's being pumped full of antibiotics.

Dad's been home a week in a half now. His knees are still painful, but he's getting stronger; still needs help getting up but can walk up to fifty yards. Pacemaker and new heart valve appear to be doing well. Had his first follow-up visit with his doctor which went well! Doctor reckons another four to five weeks for his knees to recover. Has a check up with the Cardiologist in two weeks.

Dad's been home since Wednesday and is already doing lots better. Still can't stand without help from mum and I, but is walking around a bit more. The pain in his knees is still bad, but bearable now!
