My father, Tom DePaul, had a seizure this past Friday, October 5th. He was released the same day but had sharp pain in his neck the following two days. He went to Urgent Care Sunday and was rushed to the ER when X-Rays revealed he had fractured his neck in two places. Because of the severity of the injury, he had an emergency surgery on October 8th that required a lateral fusion of vertebrae C1-C3.
The surgery went as planned, but he has a long recovery ahead of him. Recovery time varies from as little as three months to as long as a year. He will most likely have to spend time in a rehabilitation hospital before coming home and starting his recovery.
Any support that you can provide will be helpful in offsetting some of the medical bills and allowing him to focus on recovering. You can message me directly if you would like to drop off any food, donations, etc. or would just like some more info. I will keep everyone updated as we push forward!
For anyone who doesn’t know my father:
He beat brain cancer in September of 2011 and again in August of 2017. He has had several seizures as a result of his second brain tumor operation but has remained strong and worked through it all as he has his own auto-mechanic business, Tommy DePaul’s Automotive.
