Hello to everyone that is reading this post
Family and Friends,
On Saturday June 12th, 2021 at approximately 8:30 A.M. Louis was in a life-threatening motorcycle accident on his way to work. Prior to his accident, Louis stopped at Wawa for something to eat and upon his departure about less than a quarter of a mile up the street was when he was struck by sedan. The driver neglected to come to a complete stop before turning their vehicle off of the main road. As a result, he was transported to the hospital and is in critical condition. Louis sustained broken bones to his left femur, right wrist and has an orbital fracture to his left eye. In addition, on impact Louis endured a severe injury to his spine and breaking almost all his ribs which caused the development of hematoma around his heart, causing him difficulty breathing. Currently Louis is intubated to assist his breathing so his body does not have to work as hard and can focus more on healing. He currently has no feeling in his body from the chest down due to the spinal cord injury. He has been communicating with his eyes and with hand movements and he has thankfully not sustained any injury to his head, the doctors say that his helmet saved his life. On Wednesday, June 16th, 2021 he had surgery to repair his left femur and right wrist. On Wednesday, June 23rd 2021 he was able to undergo surgery to his spine, the doctors had to repair between his T-1 to T-7 and he currently has not regained feeling from the chest down. Louis is currently awaiting reconstructive facial plastic surgery to repair his orbital floor in his left eye.
Those of you that know Louis, know how strong, determined and driven he is. Louis is a fighter and will fight with everything he has no matter what the diagnosis is. Any and everything that he sets his mind to he accomplishes. The journey that we have ahead of us is going to be long, stressful, frustrating, rewarding and financially impacting. But Louis has a very strong and supporting team of people behind him every step of the way.
Louis has many future plans that need to be put into action. He is a loving son, brother, boyfriend, uncle and friend to many. He is also a great dog dad to his two fur babies Storm and Ace. Storm is a tri-color pitty, who misses her walks with her dad, play time and of course cuddles. Ace is a 7-month-old sheepadoodle who loves going on walks, going in the car and playing with his daddy. Louis has future plans to start his own family one day with his girlfriend, travel and live life to the best surrounded by the people he loves the most.
We all are devastated by this accident but are remaining faithful and hopeful for his recovery. Unfortunately, the health care that Louis currently has will not support his massive medical bills. As well as measures that will have to be put into place following his release from the hospital. Louis will require a 3-6 months in the hospital followed by extensive rehab. He will also require accommodations in his home to be best suitable for his situation as well as special transportation measures that are best accommodate him.
We are very thankful for all the love, support and prayers that are being sent his way. We also appreciate all the offers to help Louis in any way possible, we ask that if you can help to please donate to Louis’s GoFundMe account. Any donation helps and no donation is too small. If you are not able to donate at this time we understand and just ask for you to keep him in your prayers and spread Louis’s story.
