Dads Open Heart Surgery & Recovery

As most of you know my father Rick was involved in a motorcycle accident this past Friday leaving church when another driver backed their car into him. It resulted in 3 broken ribs, a broken left collarbone and a pneumothorax. Due to complications with the pneumothorax he needed emergency open heart surgery on Saturday. My father is a semi-retired self-employed handyman that will no longer be able to work due to the surgery. We are currently looking at 6-8 weeks of recovery time and therapy as well as possible home care. With my siblings either out of the country for the military, on the other side of the country traveling or due to have a baby in 2 1/2 months most of his care has fallen on me. We all know my father as a loving and giving man, if you can find it within you to help out it would be greatly appreciated.
