Update From Beth:
"First off, thank you, thank you, thank you to all of the family members, friends, and even strangers that have donated. On June 7, 2013, doctors confirmed that Dawson will have both of his feet amputated, above the ankle, but hopefully below the calf. He is currently scheduled for not only the amputations, but also the skin graft of his legs on Tuesday, June 25th. Dawson has a long road ahead of him, including full rehab and eventually prosthetics. It will take some time for Dawson to be ready for prosthetics, so in the meantime, when he does come home, he will be coming home in a wheelchair. We will have to make our house wheelchair accessible, and will have to purchase Dawson a new bed, since his current bed requires him to climb up a metal railing to get in to – and that’s just for starters. Your donations help us prepare for our new normal, and we can’t thank you enough for your generosity. XOXO, Beth"
