DH, I think you can donate blood at any Red Cross site in Terry's name. You don't actually need to go to the hospital he is in. Call your local Red Cross chapter and ask. I seem to remember that they have a 24 hour number that will be answered, though I could be wrong about that one, too. In fact, I'll go call right now and get that information. He will need blood as part of all of this. Good thinking! If you need his last name, etc, PM me.

Jim

To all of our friends,
Terry was so happy to hear from you, and yes his sense of humor is very much intact. Your love and generousity overwhelms us. I know he will be fine, and it will take a long time, but he is very motivated to recover.
The nurses came in to give him a bath and clean the wounds this evening and he was very scared to turn. They were fantastic and helped him through it with kind words and encouragement. He finally got the blood, and grime out of his hair and said it made him feel better. Of course, being the nurse I am, I jumped in and helped change sheets, opened gause packets for the nurse and put the silvadene cream on for her. I have an overwhelming need to help them take care of him. Gee I wonder why!
I have asked that an allergy to asphalt pavement be added to his allergy list!!!
They were not able to move him to Tampa today, but probably will tomorrow. Something about the insurance approval. I have the adjusters name, claim # and the rest for them in the am, so hopefully it will happen fairly early. Like I reported earlier (I think) I am taking the laptop with me, and my niece has access to the internet so I will keep you posted.
Our deepest thanks and appreciation.
Marie

Terry and Marie

I just stumbled on to this.
I am so sorry to hear of Terrys accident, and as someone said earlier Thank God he was wearing his helmet (Marie, you being a nurse, I bet you had a lot to do with that)
You both are in my thoughts and prayers.
Keep us posted.

oh well! the important thing is terry, not my measly miles. thanks again, klaws, that was quick & painless!
I found you can do this by credit card, but you have to go to the BOTTOM of the page to change funding options. Yes, they are sneaky. That being said, my concern is the usual fees attached to credit card payments via PayPal. I would hate for Terry to have little bites taken out of his donations because of PayPal fees. So I checked out the PayPal user agreement.

It looks like in paragraph 4.2 the money recipient can only receive 5 card payments in a 12 month period and I think there is a fee. In paragraph 6.2 it looks like there could be limitations on Terry's withdrawals per month depending on his account verification. Could someone who REALLY understands how this works clarify? I would hate for us to send money and Terry not be able to get all the goodwill he is due.

PayPal fees ~ Don't pass them to Terry & Marie

This was bothering me, so I reviewed the PayPal agreement more closely and it seems to indicate the recipient having a personal PayPal account will be limited to receive 5 credit card payments over 12 months and will be charged a fee of 4.9% + $0.30 USD for domestic payments or 5.9% + $0.30 USD for cross border payments for each card transaction. So I believe the bottom line is DON'T DONATE USING YOUR CREDIT CARD. Use the instant transfer from your bank account option instead so Terry and Marie won't have to bear the fees or the red tape. I'm still not sure what the withdrawal limits statement in paragraph 6.2 means but it doesn't worry me as much as the credit card issue. If I'm wrong about this, please someone say something.

At any rate, just think what could happen if EVERYONE on this forum donated even just $1, less than a any cup of Starbucks. Terry and Marie would have over $18,000 to help them through this crisis! Would that not be awesome!

Again, the donation link is here

Hang in there Terry and Marie! Hope all works out with the insurance company so you can get moved and the surgery you need as soon as possible. Being the primary caregiver for my mother when she was sick, I know this will probably fall on deaf ears, but I have to say it. Marie, get some rest when you can. You have to take care of yourself or you won't be able to take care of Terry.

My thoughts and prayers are with you both!

I searched over the PayPal legalese again and found debit cards also have a fee as follows:

Personal accounts can receive a limited number of credit or debit card funded payments per year and are assessed a transaction fee. To view your Personal account limit, log in to your account and click the View Limits link.

A credit or debit card payment sent to a Personal account for a non-eBay item is held as Unclaimed. You have the following options:
  • Accept the payment using your Personal account
  • Upgrade to a Business or Premier account
  • Deny the payment - the funds will be returned to the sender's credit or debit card
So Terry will have to pay fees for each credit or debit card transaction. If he receives more than 5 donations on credit/debit he will have to upgrade his account and pay the associated fees or deny the payment. Terry and Marie can withdraw the money without fees if they electronically transfer it directly to their bank account. I still don't understand the "withdrawal limits" part of Paypal.

Good to know. Now am glad those few extra dollars went to Terry & not PayPal despite my best efforts.

Oh, I hope we hit 18k, and maybe even MORE tide-over dough. Wouldn't that be the most wonderful expression yet of the amazing community that we have built here ...

Any more info on the blood-donation efforts? I don't usually tip the scales, but just for Terry I will eat a big thing of ice cream & give it a shot!

C'mon ... TERRY! Can you feel the love yet? (Marie too)
