On Sunday Oct 19 2014 my dad had a motorcycle accident on hwy 165 riding the winding roads on TN near the tail or the dragon. He suffered a brain injury (yes he had a helmet) consisting of a brain bleed and a fracture on the bottom of his skull. A torn rotator cuff a broken ankle and a auortic anurisum which required surgery to repair before it ruptured, but with the brain bleed he was not stable enough for surgery.

Oct 23rd he was suppose to have surgery but his BP raised to high and it had to be cancelled. The staff here struggled with maintaining a low bp until his new surgery date Oct 27th. It was a horrible feeling waiting and knowing any second his anurisum could rupture. He finally had surgery to repair the auortic anurisum on October 27 at 6pm and surgery went well. Mom my THOUGHT after a few days she could take him home. Oct 29th we were informed this is not the case. He is very sick and no where near stable enough to leave and once stable enough to leave he needs to go to a rehab center. The doctor bills are adding up, but the main thing is my mom will be living at the hospital as she has been since his accident as they live hundreds of miles away from Knoxville TN.

Once he is stable enough to leave his insurance will not cover the transportation to a facility closer to home.  The funds will go towards things the insurance doesn't cover, his ongoing long term needs and helping my Mom get a hotel versus living in the hospital.
