My Grandfather Frank Thompson was in a house fire tonight (02/06/17) and has suffered some severe burns to his body and house damage. I'm looking to raise some funds to help him recover as stress free as possible for him as he is 85 years old and a widow.
So. The past few days have been hard for us all. A few days ago Pops leg had to be amputated below the knee. He has been on a breathing apparatus to help get the soot out of his lungs. He has burns all over his face and body ranging up to 4 degree burns. He hasn't been able to talk or open his eyes fully. Today he had to have more of his leg amputated above the knee due to infection and also some of his fingers amputated off his left hand (he is left handed). Today the hospital staff took us in for a meeting and his chances of survival aren't high and may pass in the next few days. We have so many different directions this could go. We still have his house to sort out which has been destroyed. Thank you all to who have donated so far, it is greatly appreciated and will really help a lot. Pop isn't one to take from anyone, he's always a giver. We love him dearly and would do anything for him to keep him comfortable.
The Thompson family.
