Rhetts road to recovery

This page was made for a young family who’s youngest son  Rhett (21 months old) was recently attacked by a dog while attending a surprise birthday party for two relatives this past weekend ( October 13, 2018). While their son was playing with a toy another  person attending the party (not related) had their dog there and was not on a leash and had nipped at Rhett as they were within reach of each other. The dog bit Rhetts left ear removing half of the ear. This had obviously ended the party and Rhett was rushed to hospital in Oshawa, Ontario. Later being rushed to Sick kids hospital in Toronto to see plastic surgeons to come up with a plan. Rhett and his family remain at Sick Kids as the doctors develop a plan for his recovery and to ensure that he doesn’t not develop an infection as a result of his injuries. Rhett has an amazing immediate family and  extended family for emotional and physical support. Not only has Rhett suffered through this but also his mother who is completely devasted with what has happened. Thankfully her boyfriend Patrick (not Rhetts biological father but cares for and treats Caras children as his own) has been by both of their sides every step of the way. Our family is beyond thankful for everything he has done and continues to do for our family. Also there are extended family members who also had young children at this party who witnessed first hand what happened. Thankfully our family is all in this together to be there for whoever is in need.  This page was made to offset the costs of his mother and her boyfriend  having to be off work for as long as it takes for him to recover. As well as to assist in covering any medical costs associated with reconstructing Rhetts ear. Any help is greatly appreciated.
