On May 29th around 5 p.m., Dallas Disbro was involved in a diving accident. He dove off a dock into shallow waters in Ocean City, Maryland. After receiving assistance on the dock, Dallas was airlifted to a local hospital where he was initially examined and stabilized. He has since been moved to University of Maryland Hospital, which has a shock trauma center. He is suffering from a spinal injury to his C5 vertebrae.
Dallas underwent his first surgery on Monday, May 30th. The doctors said it went very well and that he would not need another surgery.
Dallas is awake and conscious and in company with his parents Robin and Steve. He is now able to breathe on his own, talk with visitors, and drink the occasional milkshake. He is moving his arms, but there is still limited feeling and movement in his fingers. He is not moving his legs yet, but he has some feeling in them as well. Although new difficulties arise each day, we trust that Dallas will stay strong and keep healing.
Thank you for the overwhelming amount of prayer and support as our family deals with this in the best way possible. We will keep the CaringBridge site (link below) updated for you all since it is the easiest way for us to communicate updates while keeping our focus on Dallas.
