Story

My brother David (Davy) Heron was involved in a serious accident in Zurich whilst attending an Electronic Dance Music Street Parade on 11th Aug 2018. He was sitting on a wall and fell back ~20ft onto a concrete path below, sustaining Brain Trauma, a punctured lung, fractures to his Skull, Spine, Shoulder, Collar Bone and Ribs. Davy has had to have major surgery on his Brain and Spine and is currently in Intensive care in Solothurn Hospital, Switzerland. Whilst he is making good progress in Switzerland, there is a language barrier. The medical team strongly advise for his best chance of recovery, Davy needs to receive Brain Rehabilitation at home speaking his own language. The money raised here will help go towards the cost of an Air Ambulance home to Belfast.

    After only 9 nights at the RVH, Davy is getting home. It’s hard to believe the progress Davy has made in just over a week. The Neurologist is pleased and believes Davy will recover better at home and he can attend Musgrave twice a week as an outpatient. Thanks again for all your prayers and support. We are so grateful.

    Davy is progressing well at the RVH. He had a scan yesterday and while there is still a small bleed the doctors are happy that it's healing and moving in the right direction. Whist this remains Davy will continue to be confused. That said, he is doing great and the confusion is getting less each day. He stood up yesterday to stretch his back and said that he might have to take another fortnight of work :-) He generally looks well, but has lost a pile of weight. He complains about a sore stomach and has no appetite, this is most likely the meds.

    DAVY IS HOME !! The flight went well today. David actually managed to walk on and off the plane. I don’t know whether the air at home is sweeter but he was much less confused than yesterday. I hope this progress is the start of more to come. Mum and Dad were so happy to see him in the RVH. They took him to the ICU, once checked out they will transfer him to somewhere more suitable. This is a great sign, as by all accounts they weren’t expecting him to be so well based on his notes from Switzerland.
