His initial injuries included Epidural Hematoma , multiple fractures on the left side of his face and fractured scapula which had him in the hospital for 4 days.
After he was released and recovering at home he once again, on Jan 29th, needed to go in for a second craniotomy. That surgery went well and after, he was kept in the hospital for another week.
On Feb 6th, Mike was released from the hospital but it was short lived. He complained of severe head and neck pain and so went back to the hospital the next day. On the 7th he was diagnosed with bacteria meningitis and will once again spend several more days entertaining the doctors and nurses at the hospital while he recovers. He will be sent home with a PICC line for IV antibiotics for two weeks.
The Doody's have had several friends and family assistance in this first month but the journey to recovery has just begun. Medical bills are starting to roll in and because of continuing surgeries, hospital stays and his recovery time, Mike is unsure when he'll be able to get back to work.
We will post updates here as well as on the Doody's fb pages. If you can help contribute, Thank YOU so very much!!! In addition, prayers, positive energy and good vibes are always needed!
