Neal was raced by ambulance to the Royal Melbourne Hospital with suspected meningococcal disease. His condition was critical and he was placed into an induced coma from which he has only just woken after 17 days.
While meningococcal was ruled out, Septicemia and sepsis were confirmed - ie Blood Poisoning (cause unknown). Blood flow was restricted to his organs thus not allowing any flow to his extremities.
Neal is still in ICU in and is facing drastic procedures including amputations.
He will continue to be in ICU for weeks then will endure a lengthy period of Rehabilitation, and he is susceptible to infections.
Neal and his family will be without a secure income for months and possibly years. They will likely have extra expenses for items such as prostheses and medical equipment.
Kristine will be the Primary Carer of Neal and their two children and her capacity to work for an income during the recovery process will be limited.
If you can help by donating a sum of money to the Neal Furze Recovery Fund that will be so appreciated by the family.
