On July 4th, John fell down the stairs in his home and stopped breathing. He was initially taken to McHenry hospital but was immediately flown to a level 1 trauma hospital. In the fall he fractured his skull and neck. The severe bleeding caused intercranial pressure and he had emergency craniectomy and part of his frontal lobe was removed. He was then transferred to the surgical ICU. It is now July 12th and he is in the ICU still fighting for his life in a coma. I am starting this go fund me page to help with the medical bills that are compiling currently and for the care he will need once he can finally be discharged. Any bit will help. Please keep my father in your prayers.
