Recovery for Samuel Ortega

Friday night my Dad never came home. He was working at a side job to make some extra cash to help us with bills because he had been laid off from his work for a while. When I say it was unusual for him to do that, it really was. My brother and my mom helped me track him through his email. From there, police were able to find him lying on the floor barely conscious at his work site, all by himself. All night long. I never knew how low my stomach could sink but to think about it just breaks my heart. My dad is currently in the ICU where he will spend weeks awaiting recovery. My family and I are BEYOND grateful for the love and support our family and friends have showed us because it really means a lot. But with my dad being the only source of income and my mom looking after us, my job won't be able to put a dent into what we will be paying for throughout his recovery. We understand that times are tough but any little donations helps immensely. My dad has always been a happy and strong man so we are praying for him and his fast recovery.
