Franz Tietz & Family is in need of our thoughts and prayers. While hunting in Jackson this past weekend, Franz's strap on his tree stand broke. He fell and was taken to Henry Ford Allegience Hopsital in Jackson. He currently remains in their care.
As of now, the doctors know that Franz has suffered a significant brain injury. He has six broken ribs, a lacerated ear, three fractured/compressed vertebrae, a fractured skull, and mircobleeding on his brain.
Franz does not have any insurance and will be unable to return to work for months to come. The doctors anticipate that he will be in need of physical therapy and constant care during his stay and once released. Currently, they do not know how long he will need to stay in the hospital, as they are keeping him sedated.
Franz and his family of six will be using any funds donated towards medical bills and care. Prayers and thoughts are also greatly appreciated. As we receive more information, we will be posting updates.
