Although things are looking up, he's in it for the long run. A head injury like his doesn't have a quick fix surgery and his recovery process will be very lengthy, requiring his cranial pressure to be closely monitored because of the swelling to his brain. Luckily he was wearing his seatbelt which is what kept him from having any cracks to his skull.
The SUV he was driving was my father's and is totaled. It was my father's only vehicle and is now frantically trying to find a way to get to work. My dad's job offers medical insurance but will only cover a portion of the costs and the longer my brother is in the hospital the more expensive his hospital bills will be. My mother also passed away in July of 2012 of leukemia and we're still receiving medical bills from that. I'm living at home with my dad in hopes of helping him with some of the bills at home but my brother's accident really is putting a strain on us and even more on my dad because he lost his only means of transportation. Times are very tough on my family especially on my dad, I'm just trying my best to take some weight off his shoulders. Any donations wether it be just a dollar or a few cents are greatly appreciated and would mean the world to me. Please and thank you so so so much.
