"Robbie the Welder" is in the hospital.
Please help "Robbie the Welder" from losing his home while he's in the hospital.
At the start of the year we almost lost Robbie Badkin. He developed a severe blood infection leading to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, a fancy term for saying he couldn't breath. He was rushed to the hospital where he was put in an induced coma, with a ventilator breathing for him, for two weeks. He was given a 10% chance of survival but the docs didn't realize how tough Rob is.
Robbie, a welder by trade, know locally as just "Robbie the Welder" was able to fight off the infection.
We, his family, are asking for your help in getting him back home. Unfortunately the condition of his home is one of the factors that led to his health problems. Robbie's home is full of black mold from floods, including Super Storm Sandy.
Rob is scheduled to be released from the rehab facility next Thursday (March 20), way ahead of his projected stay. He is walking, carefully and with a cane, his diabetes and psoriasis is under control and he has lost a lot of weight. He will go to stay with our parents in New Jersey for a month or so where he will be reunited with his dog, Shadow. We know they are both anxious to return home.
Our love and gratitude go out to all of you.
