Coach Fred's - Road 2 Recovery
-For our dear friend, coach, and mentor Mr. Fredrick Leavy.
Coach Fred went into the hospital with a fever that he had for about 3 days and severe hip pain which had been a persistent problem from a well over a month. While in the emergency room they took blood work, as well as X-rays, a CT scan and MRI. These tests confirmed a hairline fracture as well as fluid in the hip.
The results of the blood work found that Coach Fred was septic (when an infection reaches the bloodstream and causes inflammation throughout the body) and was near septic shock (when blood pressure drops significantly). This can lead to respiratory, heart, or organ failure and death. As a result of those findings they decided to do emergency surgery, where they had to clean out small bone fragments from the ball and socket of the right hip, and found MRSA in the socket and had to scrap all of that out. Coach Fred was then given a heavy dose of antibiotics to fight the infection.
He is now on the road to recovery and is about 3 weeks out from being discharged and able to return home. We would love to ask for all your help, whatever you can manage, to help Coach Fred with all of his medical expenses. Please let's work together to spread the word and return all the gracious kindness and hard work Coach Fred has blessed Atos, and the grappling community throughout the past decade.
Thank you !!!
