Help the Cramers please, medical emergency!

On Saturday September 5th my parents were at our family friend's cabin in Amery when my dad, Dan, had a heart attack and collapsed while doing yardwork. My mom started cpr and the ambulance came. They had to shock him before transporting him to Amery Hospital. From there he was airlifted to Regions Hospital in MN. He is in critical condition in the cardiac lab. He has been sedated and intubated, and made it thru the night. His labs show he has an intestinal infection called C DIFF, elevated potassium levels, and kidney damage. They did an echo cardio gram this morning and we are waiting on the results. As of now the plan is for Dan to have surgery and have a heart catheter placed today. He also will be seen by a kidney specialist. We don't know yet what caused the heart attack or how severe it was but will hopefully have more answers today. The Doctors told my mom if she had not done cpr immediately Dan would not have survived . My dad does not have any medical insurance and isn't working right now. Due to Covid my mom can't stay at the hospital with him, so she has been driving back and forth. We don't know how long he will be in the hospital and our of work, or how long my mom will be missing work to be there with him. They need help with medical bills, money for regular bills, and transportation back and forth. Please help if you can and please, please share! Thank you from our family.
