On August 27, 2017 I took my husband David to the ER for a swollen leg that was starting to look bruised (but caused him no pain). He was quickly admitted and taken by ambulance to a much larger hospital in Indianapolis where we were told he was going to lose his leg due to a rapidly spreading infection.
The amputation surgery lasted 2 hours. He ended up having 3 blood transfusions pretty quickly due to low blood pressure.
David spent a total of 17 days in the hospital. He was able to come home 9/12/17. Today we had our first of many at home nurse/occupation & physiCal therapy sessions. The nurses wrapped up his stub and cleaned it. She scheduled the therapists to come to our home daily starting tomorrow so he can build up his strength and get ready for his prosthetic that he can be fitted for in 3-6 months.
This money will help cover medical expenses, other bills, medication, etc as he will be unable to work (maybe indefinitely).
No amount is too small. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers if you are unable to donate.
