Unable to move, his family stabilized him and transported him by boat back to land where EMT was waiting to transport him.
There Clyde was rushed into surgery for a broken neck. He had to have vertebrae in his neck replaced, and was put in a hard brace.
Clyde was unable to move and had very little ability to even wiggle his fingers or toes.
He was kept in ICU until he was stable enough to be transported from Louisiana to Houston’s Memorial Hermann TIRR.
TIRR is a top notch medical facility that has overwhelming success.
The back story is that Clyde and his wife had literally just brought home their little miracle baby Jude, who had just been released from NICU himself.
Ashley recovering from surgery herself packed up her newborn, a few items, and rushed to Houston to be by Clyde’s side.
Miraculously while at TIRR Clyde has learned to walk again, and is beginning to feed himself.
The struggle is continued mobility and regaining use of his hands.
Once he is released from TIRRs in-patient care he will be able continue their out-patient program.
Obviously this is preferable rather than going back to Louisiana for basic physical and occupational therapy.
Medical staff cannot estimate when Clyde will be able to return to work.
Clyde and Ashley will have to rent a place to stay to be able to continue the therapy in Houston, not to mention continuing to pay bills for their home in Louisiana.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated to help financially support them in medical expenses, lost wages, as both of them are not working and not sure when they will return, and living expenses while they are in Houston receiving the best medical care available.
Thank you you for helping out this wonderful kind family!
