Brother in Need, child in hosptial

The doctors feel as confident as they can be about Liem's diagnosis. Staph induced Endocarditis.
- what this means is somehow the staph bacteria entered into Liems bloodstream causing an infection. The Bacteria built clumps onto her mitral valve in her heart. When it would pump it would sometimes break pieces of the bacteria clump and pump it into her brain causing the swollen brain and neurological deterioration. It is some kind of a relief to know the diagnosis but there are substantial risks still in play... the most worrisome one would be that the clump would break lose and create a colossal bacterial stroke. 50/50 chance of that we are told.
The medicine that is preferred and works the best she is allergic to and isn't tolerating so they had to choose a less aggressive antibiotic. The treatment process is 6 weeks. She may or may not have to remain in the hospital for the duration of that time. They will try to wake her up tomorrow or the next day to start testing her neurological functions. If she can follow commands they will take her off the ventilator.

Because of all this Sean Minder will be out of work for those 6 weeks and we would like to help him be able to be at his daughter's side this whole time by covering his income that he would normally make for his family. We want him to only be focusing on helping his daughter and not about how he is going to pay his bills, he has more than enough to think about right now.
