Medical Bills for Decker
Decker is my little brother and he was electrocuted and badly burned in an accident at school. He is going to loose fingers and have to have a lot of skin grafting on his chest, hands and arms. He will require a lot of physical therapy and prosthetics. Any help is much appreciated.+ Read More
We can see his hands! So just to update, there is a very positive outlook on his thumb which is awesome. He is going to loose the tips of two of his fingers on his right hand, but just the tips. He is doing so good and we are so grateful for the continued prayers and thoughts. Skin grafting should start this Thursday or Friday as will most of the real pain, but we are excited to start the the recovery process!
Great news! Decker is sitting up, he is awake and he is smiling! Most important he is smiling! Surgery went well and we are so excited to be able to talk to him! Life has been scary the past few days and we still have a lot of hard work to go but things are going great and we are happy about that! Again thank you so much for all the support and prayers!
Just to give an update. Decker has had the tube taken out but is still sedated due to pain. He has had some unforeseen problems that are making life much more difficult. If you don't already know Decker after he was initially shocked fell onto the jumper cables and continued to be shocked and burned alone for close to two minutes. If anyone has ever been shocked before a lot of times you loose movement of your body but still have consciousness. When we try to bring Decker out of sedation he is experiencing PTSD and is reliving the minutes he was left alone on the cables and because he is injured the doctors do not want him to get out of the bed causing him to feel trapped and increasing his confusion and pain. He will be having the first of many surgeries today to assess what fingers and parts of his hands can be saved and to what degree the damage extended up his arms. We are so grateful that he is alive and are so grateful for all the prayers and thoughts from those who love him. Continue to please pray for him as it is still very deep in the unknown of what outcomes will come
