He suffered a fractured skull and had brain bleeding, which required emergency surgery early this morning. So far, he seems to be stable and responding well - but still in critical condition. The extent of his brain injuries are not yet fully known. We do know that he has full movement in his extremities, but that's about all we can confirm right now. We will have more updates in the hours and days to come as we learn more.
For now, we DO know that brain surgery, an ICU and hostpital stay, follow-up appointments, medications, and other medical expenses are going to be extremely expensive - possibly more than $100,000 total (without insurance taken into account - Matt won't owe all of this, but his insurance deductibles and co-pay will still be quite the burden) when all is said and done, and that's not including the likely rehab Matt will need to undergo.
Anything you can donate helps!
If you want to do anything else to help out, please contact me at [phone redacted] or Matt's girlfriend, Cara, at [phone redacted].
