Kyle Dixon's Funeral and Medical Expenses

On December 9th, Kyle went to the ER with a Temp of 106.5.  His temp had resolved, and he tested positive for Covid-19.  He was then sent home on Steroids, an inhaler and an antibiotic.   On December 16th he was transported to Mt. Nittany Medical Center with an Oxygen Saturation in the 70’S via Ambulance.  His condition continued to worsen; at which time he was placed on mechanical ventilation.  After hours of no improvement in his oxygenation, it was decided he needed ECMO, which is “a form of life support”.  Mt. Nittany does not have this capability and he needed to be transferred to another Hospital.  Kyle was then transferred to Geisinger Medical Center, at which time he was placed on ECMO. To our surprise Kyle was able to be removed from ECMO 2 weeks earlier than expected, to everyone’s joy and relief.  Unfortunately, our joy was short lived when Kyle's condition took a turn for the worst and he had to be placed back on ECMO as well as mechanical ventilation.  Despite our many efforts  on January 20th 2020 Kyle lost his battle with covid. 

 Almost dying as an infant several times Kyle has been a fighter since the beginning.  He continued to surprise and amaze us throughout his life with MANY accomplishments.  It started with winnings of a diaper derby, “Mr. Hard Body” contest, “end zone dance” at the Jerome Bettis show then he transitioned into a superior athlete such as a heavy weight wrestler and track star and is LOVED BY MANY.  Your contribution to his funeral is appreciated and will never be forgotten.53824640_1610202673604428_r.jpeg53824640_1610202693688456_r.jpeg53824640_1610202706278805_r.jpeg53824640_1610202719857257_r.jpeg53824640_1610202731305276_r.jpeg53824640_1610203363641377_r.jpeg53824640_161020337784713_r.jpeg53824640_1610203452873934_r.jpeg53824640_1610203797150916_r.jpeg53824640_1610203815755536_r.jpeg
