For those of you who know Dale, you know that he has always marched to the beat of a different drummer. It's part of his charm. So when neurologist are saying this guy is acting kind of odd, it's kind of interesting to explain to them, this is how he always behaves. Unfortunately, however, Dale isn't completely himself. A few days ago Dale had an accident, which resulted in a skull fracture and a traumatic brain injury. At this point it is too soon to know what his long term prognosis will be. One thing we do know is that it is going to be a long road to recovery.
When the accident happened, Dale was in the process of moving to California to start a new job. Due to his lack of a job and residence at the time of his admittance into the hospital, the state of CA has provided him with medical insurance that should cover most of his medical expenses. At this point, it appears the doctors want to admit him to a month long inpatient rehabilitation program for people with traumatic brain injuries. The catch is, a member of the family will have to agree to provide 24 hour support for him once he has finished the program.
We are asking that our friends and family come together during Dale's time of need and provide a small donation to help fund expenses associated with Dale's recovery. While most of the medical bills will be paid by insurance, a family member will have to relocate to CA for the duration of his treatment. If you can't give, please share his story with your co-workers, church and/or community. Thank you for all your support during this time. It has been very difficult for our family, but all the well wishes and prayers are appreciated.
