*** 2-4-19 update**** Unfortunately Jay got the news today that he will be losing all his toes which includes part of the front of his feet. The road to recovery will be a lot longer. 

My name is John. My family is fortunate enough to be caring for Hero, Jay’s dog, during this time.

The hospital has had an overwhelming request of how to help Jay and Hero.  All donations will be going towards the long recovery ahead of him. 

If you saw the interview (link at top), or read the Star Tribune (link at top) write up for Jay, you'd know this will be a long recovery for Jay.  As mentioned, Jay is currently homeless.  The downward spiral for Jay began over a month ago with his wife's passing from cancer.  He is now living out of his vehicle with his best friend, Hero.

Currently, it's a waiting game to see what will happen with his feet. One or both may be amputated.  Regardless, he will be in the hospital for over the next week and then followed by a nursing home to relearn to walk and have the healing process begin.  Once Jay is done with all of this, he will have an even harder road ahead of him to relearn life with Hero and the upcoming disabilities.

Even though they felt it too graphic to show how frostbitten his feet got I will post the pic he sent me below. Also, below are some pics of Hero. Hero is fitting in great and enjoying his time while Jay is receiving the medical care he needs.
