36055168_1547053300899642_r.jpegOn Monday January 7th 2019 around 9pm my dad was hit by a drunk driver who traveled in the opposite direction of the freeway into oncoming traffic and struck him on his front driver side. He is now in extremely critical condition, majority of his ribs are broken/cracked. His shoulder/clavicle are broken. His jaw & cheek bone on the left side of his face is completely shattered and the right side has cracks as well. He also had some bleeding in his brain and a collapsed lung due to the impact. He was airlifted to Santa Rosa memorial hospital. He will be needing surgery to put his jaw back together and has a long, lonnnngggg road to recovery.

My fathers car was unfortunately the only running car that we have, me & my dad are insured licensed drivers, but the other driver is not. So now me and my son are left carless due to somebody's stupid actions that almost cost my fathers life.

And now while my dad recovers I will have to take care of everything at our home (finances, chores, childcare, etc) and I just began my new part time job at a little local restaurant where we live in Willits. So my finances are very slim at the moment.

This is just a nightmare that me and my family are going through this. Anything at all, prayers or donations is greatly appreciated. God bless.

And please, drive safely.

Update: have added diuretic, antibiotics, new X-rays of left side, chest, abs and lower back. Added another sedation med. plan is to keep him quiet. Discussed the concussion, that he will be confused for some time. Discussing plans for the plastic surgery which will be done at this hospital soon, but not today. Visitation is ok to 5 minutes at a time. Not too much stimulation as they want him to rest. He's doing well with the tracheotomy tube the swelling has gone down a lot but he still has a lot of bruising. He looks even better today! Praise God, prayers are answered daily, please continue!!
So thankful he's alive.

Today my dad is getting his breathing tube taken out but will be getting a tracheotomy placed in his throat so that the surgeons can begin to figure out a plan to begin his facial reconstructive surgery. The swelling near his jaw/throat area has gone down enough for them to take the breathing tube out because the swelling was posing a concern on his ability to breath on his own they had kept it in until today. thank you so much to everyone that has shared, donated and left messages for us.
