Help for Paul and Dorothy Shephard

On September 27th our sweet beloved hard working father Paul Shephard suffered severely in a tragic accident while working near Arlington Texas. From what we know he was attempting to tarp down a load on his flat bed semi trailer when he slipped and fell . In the fall he endured a severe skull fracture from the back of his skull around his head through the orbital bone which has resulted in a brain bleed. This is in addition to multiple facial fractures, several broken ribs, injury to his left shoulder and potential internal bleeding. At this point they are keeping him sedated and comfortable while further tested is underway. Our father is the primary provider for our mother and grandmother who live by very mosest means in Lewisberg KY. The loss of even a week of income for our family will prove detrimental. With the accident happening nearly 900 miles from home the travel and lodging expenses alone have already nearly exhausted their own and our (his children's) available funds. There is a very long road ahead of us. The medical expenses are going to be astronomical in addition to the income loss and distance from home we are in desperate need of any help, love, prayers and well wishes.
