This is my brother Al Buffing. He was involved in a motorcycle accident on 9/9. On the ride home a car stopped short in front of him and he went down trying to avoid an accident. He was transported by ambulance to a local hospital in Eastern Virginia. After being evaluated and stabilized he was taken to the trauma center in Norfolk VA. The injuries he sustained were a right fractured shoulder blade, left broken collar bone, broken pelvis and multiple bruises. He was released from the hospital and able to come home to North Carolina, on Tuesday the 11th. On Thursday the 13th he returned to the hospital due to an unexplained shortness of breath and extreme pain. He was admitted to the ICU where he was diagnosed with several broken ribs, chest wall bruising and trauma to the lungs. When he is Released from the hospital he will go to a rehab facility for a minimum of 2 to 3 weeks.
He has a long road of recovery ahead of him. Along with trying to maintain day to day living, he will have extensive medical bills.....from 3 hospitals. He is a retired truck driver and currently works a part time job. In addition to him not being able to return to work for an undetermined period of time, his wife Barbara will miss at least a few weeks from work while caring for him.
I would like to thank everyone in advance for any donation you may be able to give. Any and everything will be helpful and appreciated.......If you are unable to make a financial donation we ask that you please remember Al and Barbara in your prayers.
