Approximately 4 weeks ago, Dante fell down the stairs at his home, causing him to lose consciousness, leaving him laying on top of his legs for hours.
Many hours later, he regained consciousness long enough to manage a call for help and in the early hours of the morning, Dante was rushed to the hospital. He was rushed directly into surgery upon arriving at the hospital. He had severe compression syndrome in both legs, and not only were the surgeons unsure if they could save his legs, they were unsure if they could save his life. Sepsis had taken over and his kidneys had failed.
His first surgery required both of his legs to be cut open to the bone, to release the swelling, in the hopes of saving his legs... He was put into an induced coma and on a ventilator, alongside dialysis and blood transfusions. Three more surgeries later, a huge skin grafting off his thighs, with metal mesh inserted inside his legs, 3 weeks in intensive care, another week in a ward and he was finally discharged.
Now starts his long journey of being able to learn how to walk again. It is unknown at this time how long this journey will be, but any support will help with general expenses and finances Dante will need, so he doesn't have to worry about it for now (rent, food, and general expenses).
Any help would be greatly appreciated to help him get through these coming months of intense physical and emotional rehabilitation and get back to full health.
We will keep everyone updated on Dante's progress over the coming months and please keep him in your prayers!
