Support For Perry.

My Dad, Perry O'Donoghue, got sick a couple of weeks before coming into the ER. As many of you know my Dad is a hard worker, he’s done a lot for a lot of us, not just his kids, and has never wanted any help from others. He’s stubborn. He was stubborn when I told him he needed to see a doctor as well. On January 2nd he called and said he needed to go to the ER and it’s a good thing he did because he was in Respiratory Failure! He spent 5 days in the ICU, on a bipap machine. They did 3 covid-19 test that were negative only to find out Dad had the Rhinovirus which caused him to get double pneumonia. Because of the Pneumonia, and him being too stubborn to come in, sepsis had also set in. Well things started looking up...he finally got out of icu and into a regular room, and had a really rough morning today. It is January 10th, now. So this makes day 8 in the hospital. He went into Respiratory Distress, his left lung has not cleared out. They’re trying now to keep him back out of going into ICU again. You guys my Dad has been out of work this whole time and who knows how long he will have to be. He would never ask you for help but I am. He has an 8 year old at home, James. Thank you for anything you can help my Daddy with. He’s helped a lot of us growing up in any way he could. He would give the shirt off of his back for anyone. I would not ask for help if it wasn’t needed.
