Thanks for the clarification. I could have sworn he played football. Sounds like at 400lbs senior year he was already under the "care" of his mother. Probably didn't have many friends, thus when he became bed bound probably no one came around or if they did, they didn't stay long.
I just can't understand as a mother how one can bring their child home and say okay, you are 17/18 years old, its time for you to just lay in bed and that is it. How can you not try to get the best care for your child? He didn't lose the leg! In addition to blaming his mother, his father should be shot for allowing that to happen. I would be in court in a heartbeat!
