Sean “Squishy” Wendland Donations

$9,255 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 137 people in 4 months
Our son, Sean aka “Squishy”, suffered a massive stroke on March 5th. Luckily a neighbor saw it happen and called 911 right away. This allowed Sean to receive critical medical care as fast as possible after the stroke.

Sean is still in the ICU two weeks later, fighting a long uphill battle to rehab and recovery. In the last two weeks he has had two procedures to relieve pressure on his brain and to reduce any further damage. His breathing tube was removed Friday, March 15th and he has been breathing on his own but struggling a little bit due to lots of secretions in his lungs.

About Sean “Squishy”

Anyone that knows Squishy knows that he is not short with words! “Lovingly” known for his long winded rants on one subject or another, he is very passionate about everything he is involved with. Sean has been heavily involved in the FPV (First-Person View) flying community, local electric skateboard community, and the hiking and climbing world. Recently he was getting back into playing guitar. Never one to be idle, he always has something to tinker with.

Sean has a 6 year old daughter, Rozzi, who he frequently took climbing and camping. She loves going to his flight club events, hanging out while Dad flew his wing. She also loves to go electric skateboarding with him around old town Sac.


The Costs and How You Can Help

As Sean is currently still in ICU, we have no idea when he will be out of the hospital and into rehab. Rehab itself will be a very long road.

Sean will get some money from disability through his job with the State of California. However, we are asking for your help in covering the cost of his rental home for a few months.  All of our family lives out of town and it will give us a place to stay in Sacramento while taking care of Sean, and we will not have to worry about what to do with Sean’s household things until a later date. We will be able to focus solely on Sean’s recovery if we can get the rent taken care of. Medical bills, once they come in, will surely start adding up fast.  And of course, there will be miscellaneous bills we haven’t even thought of yet.  

We’re asking for your help during this extremely difficult and life altering time in Sean’s life. Even if you cannot donate, please share this request with someone Sean knew or anyone you think might be interested in helping.

Thank you and we will update this page when we have new information on Sean’s recovery.

Yesterday Sean was transferred to an acute rehab facility in Vallejo. Since the last update Sean has improved a lot. He’s talking regularly, can write, and even walking a bit (assisted)! He will spend up to 3 weeks in Vallejo with very busy days getting intense occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy sessions. Plus much more. After Vallejo he will come back to Sacramento and stay at a facility until we can get his house ready for whatever his needs will be after the rehab facility.

Sean is determined to work hard and get back to regular life’s schedules and plans! Thank you again for everyone praying, sending well wishes, and healing thoughts.

Sean was moved out of ICU yesterday!! He had the drain in his head removed, breathing easily on his own, coughing strongly to clear the congestion out of his lungs. Still seeing improvements every day! Getting dexterity back in his left hand. We are so thankful to everyone for their donations, kind words, and prayers.

Anyone interested in sending cards, flowers, etc., can send them to:

Quick update on sean. Every day we see little improvements. Still fighting off an infection but he was looking great today. Trying hard to communicate but he had a tracheotomy put in to help clear secretions in his lungs for now. Hopefully to keep pneumonia at bay. I know he’s bored out of his mind just laying in bed! He’s got my iPad now so he can watch Netflix and HBO. Thank you so much everyone!
