Dad in need

My dad, Scott Brown, is a single father who has worked three jobs for as long as I can remember to make sure he could provide for his children and now he is in a crisis. He first started in febuary with what he believed was a common cold and cough which just would not go away, he made three trips to the ER when he just couldn't breath, they kept giving him antibiotics and sending him on his way. He kept getting weaker and was finally seen by a pulmonologist who upon exam sent him directly to the hospital. He was diagnosed with congested heart failure and his heart had weakened to a dangerous point. He spent a week in the hospital while I attempted to manage the home and my younger sister. He was finally well enough to come home and after only two days home went back to work because again he is the only income. His first day back, on thursday, he was driving a client to the store and his car was hit by a tractor trailer and he was life flighted to baystate hospital with a severely damaged left arm, and due to his blood thinners massive blood loss. The doctors have had a hard time managing his blood pressure because due to the chf they are unable to replace the blood lost unless they do it slowly. He was unable to have his arm repaired for two days and when they did operate they were unable to perform the extensive procedure needed so he may not have use of that arm in the future. He is doing better day by day but will be in the hospital for a long time and will be unable to work. Please help my dad get through this horrible time. Thank you, from his children
