My little brother Chris

Friends, family and anyone willing my family and I are seeking help for a tragic event that has occurred within our family. For those of you that don’t know him this is my little brother Christopher. On the week of February 26th Chris went to Boise Idaho for his job. Unfortunately on the afternoon of February 28th Chris was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was stabbed! Chris is currently in the ICU unit in a hospital in Boise in critical condition. The Knife went in his left side through his spleen, punctured his stomach several times and lacerated his liver several times. Chris lost a substantial amount of blood before getting to the hospital and the doctors didn’t even think he was going to make it, but he’s a fighter. The average human body holds 8-12 pints of blood, Chris lost 8. Doctors had to do a similar operation to open-heart surgery. They opened him from his neck to his pelvic bone removed his spleen and repaired what damage they could. He currently has a drain in his chest and his stomach and has developed a pulmonary embolism among several other complications! They are currently trying to wean him off of the breathing machine but without success. Doctors say he can only have the breathing tube in for so long and the next step is a tracheotomy. For those of you that don’t know my brother he’s the type a guy that could have absolutely nothing to his name and still give you the shirt off of his back. He’s one of the most honest and hard-working men I know. He has two young children that he has full custody of. Chris, my family and I all live in Utah and between the expenses of missing work, traveling and hotels in Idaho are beginning to exhaust our funds. Not to mention the financial difficulties that Chris is going to face when and if he pulls through. If you know me, my family or Chris you know we are not the type of people that ask for handouts but I’m asking for your help. Any donations received will go directly to my parents who lovingly and thankfully refuse to leave Christophers side in Idaho. All money will be used for present expenses and future expenses Chris is going to face. Please share thank you
