Help my kids see their dad...

On the 25th of feb 2013 my husband started complaining of a headache, it was a constant pain behind his right eye. On the 8th march he was sent for a CT scan and it came back clear, we all thought it was a migraine. That night he got worse, I have never seen him like that before. The next morning I took him to hospital were they did more tests and found he had 2 abnormalities in his brain, turns out he has 2 aneurysms. They were getting everything ready to send him to the RBWH in Brisbane when he got worse, it was our biggest fear one of the aneurysms had ruptured. He was flown to Brisbane by chopper very quickly on the 10th march at only 34yrs old. Our kids aged 10, 6, 4 & 4  stayed with family and friends while I travelled 5 hrs to Brisbane. Kris went into surgery at 4pm and was out at 9pm. I was so relieved to see him. I got a phone call from my sisters on the 11th saying that our 6yr old daughetr had fallen off the swings and dislocated and fractured her elbow. We waited til the 13th to tell Kris. He got better very quickly and the doctors and nurses were amazed at how well he was doing. It was hard on Kris because on the 12th march it was our twins 5th bday which he sadly missed and then on the 17th march he missed our daughters 11th bday. On the 18th our daughter had to go back to the hospital to have more xrays done on her arm and they discovered it was worse then first thought and she needed surgery the next day. That night I recieved a phone call from the hospital in Brisbane saying that Kris had, had a stroke and was being moved back to ICU. He had very little movement in his hand and face. I rushed back to Brisbane after our daughter surgery to be with him. He was in ICU from the 18th to the 28th march and was moved to the neuro ward today yay.....my goal is to take my kids to see him and because our car is small we cant all fit in it so I need to hire or buy a bigger car and I would like to make our trip a fun trip so that the kids arent sitting in hospital the whole time. Hopefully Kris wont be in hospital too much longer. I will be his fulltime carer and I cant leave him alone so I would really like to be able to buy a bigger car for us :)
