Supporting dad's hip surgery

After being in Canada for a week visiting me and my sister, my dad went to the parking lot to help my sister as her car was sliding down the parking lot ramp because it was very slippery as it had snowed the night before. When walking towards her car, he slipped and fell on his left side breaking his hip. I called 911 and after spending the night at the hospital and having x-rays and a CT scan done, the doctors said he needed surgery right away. He unfortunately did not have insurance and as a Mexican citizen, he was obviously not covered, leaving us with a very high hospital bill. He is fortunately recovering, but we still don't know how many sessions of physiotherapy he will need and whether or not he will recover fully. Seeing my dad in so much pain and needing assistance for all his basic needs or to move his leg or turn on the bed hurts us deeply and no amount of money can make it better. However, being realistic right now, the most urgent matter is to cover the hospital bill. Therefore, if we could get any amount to support this, we will be forever grateful.  We have received so much support and prayers from our friends and family, and that has kept us going strong and united. Thanks so much for all your help and may God bless you abundantly. 

Despues de estar una semana en Canada visitandonos a mi y a mi hermana, mi papa fue hacia el estacionamiento a ayudar a mi hermana, ya que su carro se estaba delizando por lo resbaloso que estaba el pavimento pues habia nevado el dia anterior. Mientras se dirigia hacia el carro, se resbalo y cayo de lado izquiero rompiendose la cadera. Llame al 911 y despues de pasar la noche en el hospital, los doctores nos dijeron que necesitaban operarlo de emergencia. Desafortunadamente no tenia seguro y como ciudadano mexicano, obviamente no estaba cubierto, lo cual nos ha dejado con una cuenta de hospital sumamente alta. Afortunadamente se esta recuperando, pero aun no sabemos cuantas sesiones de fisioterapia necesitara y si se recuperara al 100%. Ver a mi papa con tanto dolor y necesitando ayuda para todas sus necesidades basicas o para mover su pierna o voltearse en la cama nos duele profundamente y ninguna cantidad de dinero lo puede mejorar. Sin embargo, siendo realistas, en este momento, el asunto mas urgente es cubrir la cuenta del hospital, por lo tanto, si pudieran ayudarnos con cualquier aportacion,les estaremos eternamente agradecidos. Hemos recibido tanto apoyo y oraciones de nuestra familia y amigos y eso es lo que nos ha mantenido unidos y saliendo adelante. Muchas gracias por toda su ayuda y que Dios los bendiga abundantemente.
