Dad needs an air ambulance to get home ♡

My dad suffered a stroke while I was on the phone with him on my birthday, May 23. Being on the phone with him saved his life as he was home alone getting my parents house ready to sell three days later. There have been ups and downs over the past 65 days but he ended up back in the ICU on Tuesday morning. My mom summoned my brother and I to Texas as we prepared for the worst. Today, a tracheostomy and ventilator later, we hope to get word that he has stabilized enough for an air ambulance flight to Colorado. There we have found a facility that specializes in stroke victims, ventilator patients and infections. Any donation you are able to make would be extremely helpful during this trying time to help get my dad to a facility who can care for him as well as to give my mom a support system she hasn't had here in 65 days in Texas. My brother, his wife and two small boys, my mother and I will be able to help him through this long road to recovery. Thank you for your visit to this page and consideration of a donation to my family. Prayers, family and friends have helped us get this far, and the human kindness of strangers can get us to begin healing in Colorado. ~ Adam
