Medical expenses for Tim Erickson

Tim is a great man, who makes a major impact on everybody he meets. Within this last year he was diagnosed with a genetic form of cirrhosis in his liver. He was managing the disease through exercise and change of his diet. Until March of 2017 things were going good, then started then back pain. Once the pain started he went into the ER where they told him it was just a pulled muscle. 2 weeks later he still had pain and went back in, there he told him he had an infection in his spine. The pain was so bad he was bed ridden and had to stop working. There were 4 other hospital stays after that until around April 2017. One of those stays was due to antibiotics for the infection. The antibiotic he was on had caused his kidney numbers to start decreasing. .From there he's declined in health, he's lost a lot of muscle in his shoulders and legs, and has fluid drained from his stomach every other week. This July, 2017, Tim made a trip 6 hours from home to Madison, WI to have a transplant evaluation. While down there he had a fall, hit his head and become hospitalized. During this hospital stay they caught the start of 2 new infections and a small blood clot in his leg. They also found his ammonia levels in his body were high, which were causing confusion, and loss of some memory. His daughter is taking care of him, and helping him out as much as she can. We are trying to raise money for Tim to help with paying bills, the cost of transportation to and from the University Of Madison Hospital for his liver care, and any other expenses that have come along with his conditiom. Any amount is appreciated, and thank you in advance to anyone who was moved by this story and to anyone that helps.
