Bring Bobby Home for Christmas

So we are really trying to bring Bobby back home from California to Arizona. But unfortunately insurance doesn't cover any of and neither do charities because it's not emergent. But we need him home, we can not continue having him in California it's too expensive and Bobby need all the support back home. The cheapest we've found is to bring him home via ambulance and it costs a whopping $9,000. So please share this so we can get him home! **LETS GET BOBBY HOME** So as you all know, Bobby Edens suffered a heart attack on October 21st around 5:00-5:30pm. A passer by found him hunched over in his car unresponsive without a pulse. They performed CPR on him until paramedics arrived. Upon arrival to the hospital he began having seizures so they sedated him and started lowering his body tempature to very cold in order to prevent additional brain damage. He was heavily sedated as well as paralyzed by a paralytic to let his body rest. He is intubated with a breathing tube so the breathing machine does his breathing for him so his body doesn't have to. Late night on Oct 22nd they started raising his body temperature and by morning of Oct 22rd he reached their goal temp of 96°. They also stopped the paralytic. When the nurologist came he stopped the seizure medicine and Bobby immediate began seizing and the seizures continued to get worse and worse by the minute. The Dr kept increasing his medicine but the seizures are still continuing to happen. The seizures are caused by irreversible brain damage that happened when his heart stopped and his brain went without oxygen.  We do not know the extent of the brain damage at this point. In order for the Dr to assess the brain damage, they need to get the seizures under control so they can stop the sedation medicine and start waking him up. But as of right now they cannot do that and aren't sure when that will be. So as of right now the priority is getting the seizures under control and wait for his brain to regenerate. It's gonna be a long road but we have to keep faith and patience. Bobby will get through his. He's a fighter! Please keep the prayers coming, we appreciate everyone's support and love so much! Thank you all!
