Dio's Climb back
Organized by: Randi J
Dio is a 12 year old boy. Very polite, sweet, energetic, strong, caring, talented, compassionate, funny boy. He loves sports. He played a quarterback, safety, receiver, & cornerback on his football football team. He was also on a baseball team. He was a pitcher, outfielder, 1st baseman & a catcher. He enjoyed playing basket ball, riding his bike & always doing something. In December with no warning. I got a called that changed my life. The school called and didn't know what was wrong with him. He was transported to the ER. He had a stroke. His left side of his body wasn't functioning. It was a scary situation. They are still doing tests and doing follow-up appointments. The appointments are 3 hour drives (one way). The doctors still don't have an answer as to why this happened. We are all very confused. We still have a long ways to go. Dio still has physical therapy 3 times a week. Taking 2 types of blood thinners and instructed no physical activity of any kind. So he needs care 24 hours a day. Thsnk you for your time..
