Bring Grandpa home
on behalf of Robyn Morphett
Four weeks ago, my elderly parents Robert and Robyn were on their trip of a lifetime.  One week into their holiday, Robert fell down a flight of stairs and fractured his skull and ribs, resulting in a bleed on the brain and severe hearing loss.  After 10 days in intensive care and a further two weeks in hospital "Cover More Travel Insurance" have left them stranded in Austria with a huge Hospital bill and no way to get home. 
They have saved their whole lives for a European Holiday, only for it to be cut short by an accident.  They paid for the top travel insurance because of their advanced age. Robert is 78 and Robyn is 77.
The hospital bill is approximately $50,000 and getting bigger the longer he stays there.  The money needs to be paid before they can leave the country.   Any money that can be accessed from our homes will take weeks to come through.
My mother, Robyn, has been stuck in a foreign speaking country for 4 weeks with no support and is at breaking point.  I will fly over to Austria to assist them home, but that won't happen until the hospital has been paid.

These funds are needed urgently and will be used to pay the Hospital and to fly home.

Please help in any way you are able to get Grandpa home. You will make 3 grandchildren, and a few adults, eternally grateful.

Thank you for taking the time to read our story.

Hi to everyone that has donated and shared the link.
Unfortunately there has been an incident with regards to Robert's recovery. On Sunday 10th August Robert suffered a seizure at home and was taken to hospital in an unconscious state. He was then flown down to the Alfred hospital in Melbourne and put into ICU on a respirator. On Monday he regained consciousness but doesn't know what is happening. He has some delirium and confusion.
What we thought was a stroke was some sort of epileptic seizure. We are waiting to see what happens next.
