He spent the next three weeks in the Neurological ICU being cared for by the most amazing team of healthcare professionals we have ever encountered. During those three weeks, he also faced several other major medical issues in addition to having a significant brain injury. With odds stacked against him, he never stopped fighting and has been able to overcome many of the other medical issues that he encountered. He is finally at a point where he is stable and his brain has the chance to start healing.
During these past few weeks, we have witnessed an outpouring of love and support for our Dad and our family that we can’t even begin to describe. So many people have been asking if we need anything or what they can do to help. Sometimes we find ourselves so overwhelmed by the situation itself that it has been hard to give everyone an answer.
At this point, there are so many unknowns. What we do know for certain is that the recovery from an injury like this will be a long road. As he progresses, there may be things that Dad needs for his recovery and expenses incurred that are not covered under his health insurance. Our hope is that by establishing this account, it will help ease the financial burden for our Mom and ensure that Dad continues to get the best possible care he can.
Anyone that knows our Dad knows him as a genuinely good man. They recognize his kind spirit, dedication to his family, sense of humor, work ethic and willingness to help anyone without hesitation.
Our family cannot thank everyone enough for the support we’ve received so far. We truly believe that Dad would have not made it this far without the prayers, well wishes and positive vibes from so many. Please keep them coming!
