Bob's Medical Bills

a couple weeks ago Bob fell down some icy stairs breaking 6 ribs, puncturing his left lung,  fracturing his skull and thoracic veterbra.  He seemed to be recovering well and was sent home.....  Then the nightmare really began!  He went back to the doctor for increased pain and difficulty breathing on his ;eft side, he also had some drainage from his chest tube site, He was readmitted to the hospital with a MRSA infection in his left lung.  He rapidly "went downhill" after re-hositalization leading to him now being on a ventilator for 5 days.  The doctors are not sure if and when he will be able to be taken off ventilator support, ad hav mentioned a permanent tracheostomy.  Each day we hope for some improvement and he is improving, but the improvements are slow and small. My parents don't hav great health insurance an will owe at least 20% of this bill which will probably be over $250,000 easily. Not to mention income lost while dad is out of work.  Please help in any way you can!
