Paul Zyla - PGH
This past Monday, my sister's long time boyfriend and life partner, Paul Zyla, suffered an aneurysm and seizure. He is currently staying in the Neurovascular ICU (4F) wing of Presbyterian Hospital in Oakland. At this time, he is stable, but his recovery is going to be a long one. Honestly, we are still in the period where anything can happen, but we are staying optimistic. So far he is still stable and showing good signs for being taken off of the ventilator in the next couple of days. When they turn down the sedation to work with his physical responses, he does well with them and even has started moving his toes, but can't be awake for too long before becoming agitated.
August 13th, 2014, I will be hosting a benefit for Paul and my sister, Tobin, at Rock Bottom Brewery. My sister is still figuring out what will happen in the upcoming weeks, but her main options include leaving work to take care of Paul and all that encompasses.
Generally, every Wednesday we host some event - tapping, meet the brewer, corn hole, etc.. I wanted to utilize the aforementioned date to help them out. It's our 'play corn hole with a brewer' night. So, we will have the boards out.
Paul is well known in PGH and beyond for DJing and hosting a weekly online DJ event called Ultrawizardsword dot net. He also works locally with Humanaut. This is all outside being a super stellar, fun, and nerdy dude who happens to love the hell out of my sister. I'd like to see this go well. Please share, if you can!
HOWEVER, if you can't make it, but still want to donate money to them, do so here.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Great job everyone!!
I want to personally thank everyone again for their generous donations. It really means the world to us that so many have reached out to lend a helping hand in our time of need. There is still work to be done, but we know it can happen thanks to so many friends, family, and even complete strangers.
Thank you again so, so much!
Don't forget to come to Rock Bottom THIS WEDNESDAY! Time adjust - 530PM Start (For those to get out of work).
I don't have the ability to donate right now, but I will share on my wall to spread the word. Daily thoughts and prayers go out to you Tobin and Paul.........keep strong in your faith, this too will pass...............
