Ken Otis' medical expenses

To start I'd like to thank everyone for their prayers and support for my Dad (Ken Otis), during this time. On November 27th Dad didn't show up for work, and for those of you who know my dad he doesnt miss work for anything. He was found around 3 o'clock in his apartment bathroom unresponsive on the ground. He was rushed to Saint Marys Regional Medical Center in Reno,where he was put under heavy sedation so that the doctors and nurses in the ICU could figure out what had happend.
What was found out is that Dad had, had a stroke due to High blood pressure, 256/178. He is currently uder heavy sedation, 10 days later to try and keep his heart rate and blood pressure under control.  The doctors like the progress so far but everyday is a struggle to maintain a balance of trying to ween him off sedation and keeping his vitals at a safe level. 
Right now we dont know how long it will be until hes awake and able to interact it could be days, weeks, or months, the doctors dont even know yet. 
These funds will cover the cost of the medical bills, his therapy when he wakes up and the cost of the hotel that mom (Lisa Otis) is staying in, she has yet to leave his side, only 6 hours every other night so she can go sleep and take a shower.
A couple bank accounts have been set up through the US bank and the Umpqua bank, information to donate to those can be found on my facebook account (Ryan Otis) on a post. 

Thank You evryone for your thoughts and prayers for my family. We are making day by day and everyday Dad is getting better.
