Brother in need

As most of you know, my brother Brad McLaughlin was in a bad car accident early Monday evening. They made the decision to life flight him to Bryan in Lincoln due to his condition. He had emergency surgery and his spleen was removed due to damage and they are keeping a close eye on his liver as well. He has a broken leg, bruised ribs and lung as well and is currently heavily sedated with a breathing tube which both they will be easing off slowly. As of now they weren't able to find any significant signs of brain damage. His gf is with him and doing an amazing job of staying strong and keeping us all updated. She and he have had a hard 12 hours. He has a long road to recovery and at this time we don't know how long he will be in Lincoln. Thankfully he has good health insurance, but as you know that doesn't cover everything. Like some of us, they don't have a large emergency fund set aside for times like this and they are currently accruing a lot of expense with Kaley being up there with him (hotel, gas, food, both of them being out or work, etc). Those of you that know Brad know that when he wakes up, he will hate me for this, but we have to start somewhere. Anything you might be able to give would be incredibly helpful. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider. We love you all.
