Ryan O'Dell save's GF and a dog

A quick as possible message about Me (Talitha) and Ryan.  I am Ryans other half and have been managing all of his appointments and... Well life... So people that do not know who we are I guess you wouldnt know who me is :)  So, we have known each other most of our lives. We have been next door neighbors as kids in even multiple different places on accident. That has passed threw our lives even when we dont speak or see eachother due to life. We always end up running into eachother esp when needed the most. We are best friends and lucky we have eachother. I dont want to make this all about our personal story but i am willing to share ot if anyone wants to know. So i will be doing most the comouter stuff ad passing along messages and filming him for updates and thank yous. He is told every movement on here so please send all good vibes his way. He took a ruff beating to keep me from being the one getting hit. We appreciate all of you. Thank you!!  Ryan has been hospitalized by 2 men that had beat him very badly. He suffers from deep cuts from a machete and a chained belt.  He has had surgery and recovering. He will be able to use his arm but it will be very weak for some time and may not have full strength. He isnt quite ready to walk and stand and will need physical therapy. Not having proper insurance they are already trying to discharge him.  And unfortunately he doesnt have a proper place to heal. The doctors biggest concern is chance of infection. He is having a harder time with, he was getting ready to start a new job that he was really excited about and now unfortunately he will not get to start that job. Depression is starting to kick in and feeling like he can not catch a break and quit having to struggle to just live.  This should have not happend. We just wanted to make sure the dog didnt get hurt and just asked them to move along. We ask for any help to help get Ryan back on his feet and proper health. Funds will go to living expenses such as a place to live and recover and basic needs such as food and clothes. If enough funds are available transportation will be on that list. Its hard to get on the bus esp in a wheel chair. Its going to be a ruff long road witj Ryan being out of work and not having a very good head start at that. We appreciate  Even a kind word, it can do so much. We would like to thank you for your time and consideration, thoughts, and prayers
