Louie’s Fight

$42,055 of $45,000 goal

Created July 15, 2018
On Friday July 13, 2018, Louie’s life, and so many others lives, changed forever.  While visiting North Carolina with friends to celebrate birthdays, go golfing and see their friend before his Wedding in October, Louie & a friend were in a horrific dune buggy accident.   Unfortunately, his friend did not survive.  By the grace of God, Louie survived and was found by one of his friends that is a nurse, after hearing his cries for help at the bottom of a cliff.  Louie sustained facial fractures, fractured vertebrae, broken ribs, collapsed lungs, bruising, gash in his head, amongst other injuries.  Louie just got his breathing tube removed today.  Doctors told his mother, Carol, that he has a long road of recovery ahead of him.  Carol is staying at a hotel and by Louie’s side.  At this point the family is unsure when they will be able to bring Louie home to continue his recovery and they need all the support we are able to give them.  Any amount helps. Please share! The family thanks you from the bottom of their hearts! #LouiesFight

From Louie’s mom, Carol:
Update. Louie is doing much better today. Respiratory is pleased with his numbers and his left chest tube should be removed today. PT- wow he walked out the room and down the hallway. Soo proud. Got my list of clothing and supplies he needs for rehab so while he is resting I'm getting those and rest myself. Thank you everyone.

Thank you all for the donations & continued prayers.

Update from Carol:

I was able to have a delicious lunch and dinner and Teddy arrived today and also got to enjoy the BBQ! The epidural seems to finally be working so he is able to rest and sleep. PT and Occupational therapy came to sit him up and stand him for a few minutes. The also put an air mattress - more comfortable. His oxygen level came up some but he still has difficulty breathing.
