Overnight, Nathan Leone updated the MADINA LAKE blog overnight with another update on his twin brother Matthew’s progress following a brutal attack last week as he came to the aid of a woman being beaten in the street.
In the blog, Nathan tells us that Matthew will be allowed to go home whilst he awaits further surgery, but adds that the permanency of the damage done (physically and mentally) is still unclear:
“so we’d finally convinced the doctors to let me take matthew home. he was going nuts in the hospital and they agreed that he would benefit from a more comfortable environment. the only goal at this point is get him strong enough for his 2nd brain surgery which is scheduled for the 16th. it’s going to be a tenuous couple of weeks, we’ll watch him 24 hrs a day, make sure he sits still, rests and heals to the fullest extent possible. we know from the doctors that his future prognosis remains guarded since the permanency of the physical and neuropsychological damage is yet unknown…“
He goes on to thank everyone for their well wishes, donations and further efforts to raise money for Matthew, closing his blog with “you’ll never know how grateful we are… all the love in the world“. You can read the full blog HERE.
