Remarkableriots Posted August 11, 2018 Share Posted August 11, 2018 https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/medical/man-who-lost-his-limbs-after-dog-lick-caused-infection-speaks-out-i-m-not-looking-back/ar-BBLLjdP?ocid=AMZN Quote But because his body had decreased circulation to his limbs in response to the infection, doctors had to amputate Manteufel’s legs. Two weeks later, they removed his forearms, as well. Dawn Zwicker-Manteufel, Manteufel’s wife, has been a constant presence at the hospital as he recovers — and will continue to be as he prepares for at least three more surgeries expected in the coming days. After Manteufel’s hospitalization, a GoFundMe was set up to help the family with medical costs, and Manteufel hopes to be fitted for leg and hand prosthetics once he leaves the hospital. Manteufel says he and the family will have to sell their two-story home to look for a place that will be more suitable to his needs going forward. Despite how quickly his life changed forever, Manteufel is in good spirits. “I’m good to go. My mind is right, I’m not looking back one minute,” he says. “It sucks, but what are you gonna do, you know? My mind’s been 100 percent positive through all of this. Looking back is going to get you nowhere.” Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
