On January 12th, Tim thought he had a toothache which turned out to be much worse than we expected. After seeing a doctor and taking antibiotics, things only got worse. I rushed him to the ER, where he was immediately admitted to the hospital, and had to be transported downtown. Tim was suffering from a massive infection in his cheeks, throat, chin, and neck area. The doctors informed us that the infection was just hours away from spreading to his airways, which would have swollen shut. After surgery and an extended stay in the hospital, the doctors now feel that he can continue his medicine from home and he was discharged yesterday. Due to his condition, he will not be able to return to his normal workload for quite some time. This fund is to help him with his living expenses so he can focus on his recovery without having the constant worry of how to pay his bills. Because he was in the hospital for much longer than expected, his medical bills have also accumulated, so this fund will help pay part of those expenses as well. Tim is never one to ask for help or want attention, but any donation would be so greatly appreciated!
