Help Isaac with his Medical Bills

This past Sunday afternoon Isaac was swimming at a pool in Baldwin, WI.  He took a dive in to the pool and hit his head and shoulder in the shallow end.   He immediately felt a lot of pain in his neck and his left arm went completely numb.  Fortunately, he was able to get himself out of the pool on his own, but he immediately knew something more was wrong.  The ambulance was called and he was taken to the hospital in Baldwin.  Scans revealed that he had broken his C5 and C6 vertebra.  He was brought to Regions Hospital in St. Paul for further care and assessment.

Early Monday morning, Isaac had an MRI which revealed that he needed to have surgery to stabilize his spine.  Isaac underwent a more than four hour surgery to fuse two vertebra together on the front and back of his neck.

Thankfully surgery went well and Isaac was lucky enough to have kept full use of his arms and legs.  His left arm, which had some numbness and tingling after surgery, should be close to 100% once the swelling from his surgery subsides.

We are beyond thankful for the outcome Isaac has been given.  The outpouring of love and support for Isaac and his family has been incredible.   

WHY ISAAC NEEDS YOUR HELP

Anyone who knows Isaac knows how active and adventurous he is.  For the next year, he's been instructed to  "take it easy" with minimal lifting and activity.   

While Isaac has been incredibly positive up until this point, parts of the next year might be tough for him as he adjusts to his new "easy" lifestyle.   

It would be great to support him both emotionally and financially.  He  will be facing large hospital bills and the ongoing costs of check-ups and physical therapy.   My hope for Isaac is that he can focus on healing and taking care of himself without having  to worry so much about paying for the surgery he needed.

Of course, while financial support is great, Isaac would appreciate the continued love and support through messages, prayers, phone calls and visits as he recovers.  

Thanks in advance for all the love and support.
