This is the link to one news outlet www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Woman-Attacked-By-3-Dogs-In-Anza-502853982.html My children's dad was asked to let his mother die today by doctors. Against others wishes...  He refused to. The dogs basically ate his mother alive, ripping out a main artery in her throat, causing a severe stroke to the left side of her brain, leaving her half brain dead. Everyone tried to convince him of the quality of life she will have after this situation and to just let her die. As one side of her brain swelled into the other side causing her to go back into surgery to have half of her skull removed. Insurance will not cover all that is to come, but her son cannot let her go this easy. Unfortunately a relative that has no interest in his mother's well being is after money that his mothers medical bills will never see. Her son's name is Tim Platt and his mother is Angela Platt/Johnson. Please do not donate to any other page that refers to this incident. Tim is Angela's only child. His dad passed a year ago (Tim Platt Sr.) due to cancer and his mother is all he has left. Please do not donate to any other post in regards to Angela Platt/johnson's accident. Thank you for your time and any prayers would be greatly appreciated as Angela struggles to pull through this.

This is Tim, the son of Angela.

First of all.... I'd like to thank everyone who has donated and those who have taken the time to contact me through social media. I apologize to those still waiting on my response. Certain messages have made me completely fall apart, seeing what love and sencerity a complete stranger could have towards another. I get stuck on basically every message I come across and getting through more than a few per day... is about all I can take in. The support is amazing and your messages have been what's keeping me going for my mom. If you all only knew how serious I am when I say that.

This app has been notifying me saying I needed to give an update. I'll start from the beginning, since this is the first time I'm personally commenting on this app. And Im trying my best to keep this short.

My mother was living in Anza, CA. It's in the middle of the desert between Palm Springs and San Diego basically....Most people haven't heard of the town. For those who have had the pleasure of meeting my mom... she is the most kind hearted, loving person that you will ever meet. Shes one of those who donated to starving kids in other countries and when she showed me pictures of these kids she was feeding through her donations... I'd jokingly tell her to feed me instead, cause I'm always hungry.... my mother is the sweetest, nicest person you'll ever meet. She raised me all by herself since I was two. Single mom and I was a handful. I'm not joking about that one bit. I was bad.

Fast forward to last year... My biological father passed away due to cancer. My mom takes it hard to the point where she ends up in the hospital. We get past that and then a little over a year later... my mom is living with family out in Anza, CA. She expressed her fear of these dogs nextdoor... she stopped going on her morning jogs and avoided going outside whenever she could.

About a week and a half ago, around 9am, she went outside to hang up laundry she was doing for someone... the neighbors 3 pitbulls, that she was so fearful of, got out of the gate and attacked my mother, basically eating her alive with 44 bite wounds and no one around to stop it. The dogs lached on the her legs, her arms, bring her to the ground where they latched on to her face and neck. The neck bites cuts off one of her main atteries to the left side of her brain, causing a severe stroke. She was lifeless when family found her. Her eyes were stuck as wide open as could be.... and that terrified expression staied on my mom's face, untill she was airlifted to Desert Reginal Hospital.

Today we're about a week and a half in. I keep getting asked and purswaded by the doctors to let her die. My mom is now half brain dead. They had to remove half of her skull to make room for the swelling.... They say she'll never be able to talk again.. walk... comprehend anything that's going on around her... may have issues swallowing... will stay on life support... I refuse to let her go. Fuck that... I'm not letting my mom go.

My mom started opening her eye yesterday... on Christmas... I seen nothing but empiness... and it destroyed me... I questions my discission of keeping her alive.... but if I were her... I wouldn't want anyone to give up on me... and I am for sure not going to give up on my mom.

She's supposed to be moved out of here within a couple days. Insurance has made things very limiting, but things will work themselves out. They always do. Thank you all for all of your support. I appreciate it more than I can explain. And I will get to each of your messages personally, just don't think I'm ignoring any of you. I'll get though all of them. I promise you all that.

Thank you all
Tim
