The Story

Tony was in an accident and sustained a traumatic brain injury on November 16. He had 3 skull fractures and bleeding in his brain. He has had two emergency surgeries to remove the right and left sides of his skull to help make space for the swelling. They also placed a drain in the center of his brain that will help remove the blood and extra fluid build up. His brain still has a lot of blood on it and we are told it may take weeks before that reabsorbs in the body. He is currently in a medically induced coma, but they are going to ween him slowly so that they can see if he will begin to waken. 

We are holding strong for now. Tony shows some signs of involuntary movements and his pupils are no longer dilated- both goods signs, small but good.  Lydia, Margie and Al have been staying at a hotel nearby and plan to continue spending each day kissing, touching and sending all your/our love to him while he heals. They tell him every message you send and all the love you feel for him. This is something no medicine can give. Thank you ALL again for your continued support, everyone.

This will be a long road to recovery for Tony. The neurosurgeon estimates anywhere between a year to 18 months recovery. Any donation will be helpful and appreciated tremendously. 

For anyone that wants to know where Tony is...he is receiving care at Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center.

This morning we said goodbye to our beloved Tony. He went peacefully surrounded by his family. My parents, Lydia, Brian, Mack and I were with him to the end - telling him how much we love him, how much he will be missed and how much joy he had brought to all our lives.  We are heartbroken. Life will never be the same without Tony. We appreciate all the love and support you all have provided throughout this horrible time. We are so grateful and fortunate to have so many amazing people there for us. We will keep you updated regarding further services. Thank you.

Tony had his pressure today go up to 22 and then it came back down to 15-16 which is good. We are hoping it goes down more and stays steady. We would like to thank Sean Gunn (Tony's friend and old neighbor) for setting the family up with a family friend, and amazing man who has opened his house to them. It is amazing how kind people have been. We are overwhelmed by the kindness of this man to open his house up to strangers. The support, help and prayers have been amazing. If you are praying specifically, which some of you have asked, we need his skull pressure to go down. Keep up the positive thoughts and prayers.
