Darrius's foot was mauled by our neighbors dog. He had 3 surgeries in a week and he will be needing at least 3 more surgeries.

Darrius was trying to get his dog away from our fence and his foot slipped into a hole. The neighbor's dog grabbed his foot and and pulled his leg under the fence and mauled it!!!! Both bones in the bottom of his leg is broken and he has severe open lacerations. The accident happened on 10/6/12 and he has had 3 surgeries. He is having to see a plastic surgeon weekly and an orthopedic provider. He possibly is going to need 3 more surgeries. Pens will need to be removed and he will need skin graphs not to mention the physical and emotional rehabilitation he is going to need.  His provider's are not sure if he will need more surgeries as he grows. This has emotionally scarred him. He wakes up screaming the dogs name and states he was only trying to help his dog. Darrius is partially deaf and has epilepsy, so he has medical issues that he has to deal with and now this physical handicap!!!! The story was aired on our local new stations, Channel 8-KTUL and FOX23.. Now Darrius is afraid to go outside and panics when he hears a dogs barking.
