My brother is a police officer with the Sioux City Police Department. He has worked in law enforcement for 25 years (14 with SCPD) and served as homicide, vice and patrol.
On January 27th Bruce fell off a roof resulting in a pilon fracture (a fracture of the distal part of the tibia & the ankle joint). Due to trauma he couldn't have surgery until Feb 6th. He began recovery after surgery finally returning to light duty for 1 week at the end of March, but swelling continued resulting in doctors order of 3 more weeks bedrest. On April 11th he was referred to a plastic surgeon in Sioux Falls for a skin graph. In Sioux Falls they determined his leg was infected, resulting in admission to the hospital on April 16th, where he remains. He had 4 surgeries trying to save his leg but staph infection destroyed his foot/ankle joint, heel, and followed up the fracture line of his tibia. It was determined amputation was the best solution. On April 22 he underwent below the knee amputation and will remain in the hospital until pain is managed.
Bruce has been unable to work during most of this ordeal and is out of time off but hoping to return to law enforcement in the future.
Bruce loves his family; wife Meg, kids: Lily, Locke, Layna, Mallory and Marcus and is hopeful amputation will be his last surgery on this LONG journey.
They now have incredible expenses. He has been off work a long time, he remains hospitalized in Sioux Falls and family consistantly travels to be with him. Plus he will need rehab, prosthetics, ongoing care and medical treatment with travel expenses.
This has been and will continue to be a financial hardship for their family...I'm sure you can imagine the hardship. Please help...any donation is appreciated!! #TeamHokel
