Rattlesnake Bit

On August 16th 2017 our father and husband was unfortunately bit by a rattlesnake. He was life delighted to Geisinger Hospital in Danville PA. He was put on life support and has been here for over a week now in the intensive care unit. The doctors are saying that his case is a mystery. They are trying to do everything they can but he still is not doing well at all. In the last week he has been given 30 vials of anti venom, which cost $120'000 per vial, but there is still venom in his blood stream. The venom is causing aweful bruising all over his body from eating his tissue. His platelets are also very low to the point where if anything would happen externally or internally he will bleed out. He has no clotting factor what so ever. There is no estimated time on how long he will be here or how much longer it is going to take to completely recover. So therefore, medical bill and household expenses are rising quickly and significantly. Anything that can be donated would be greatly appreciated. And if you cannot donate sharing this would also be extremely helpful. Thank you to everyone for your prayers through all this and donations in advance. From his wife Terri, and his children Taylor, Kristy, Brooke, Hillary, Nicki, Brittany, Michael, me Dustin.
