Shane is currently being treated in the ICU at the Methodist Dallas hospital where professionals believe he will be residing for at least the next week. He sustained major injuries to his liver, colon, pancreas, and urethra. According to his mother, the bullet cannot be removed because it would be too dangerous.

“We’re praying he’s going to make a full recovery,” said his wife, Irina.
“The bullet is still in him, and they can’t get it out, it’s too dangerous,” Dorothy Post said.
The family is prepared to undergo months of rehabilitation so that Shane makes a full recovery. A GoFundMe campaign was launched to help Shane’s family and wife pay for his medical bills. If you wish to donate, the link can be found here.

As many of you already know @shane_post_ got shot in front of me, baby Penelope and @rudy_asael on April 19th. He has been in the ICU since then. His surgery was 4 hrs long and his injuries are very severe. As we were told, he got shot at a very bad spot as a lot of major organs are located there. He suffered injuries to his colon, kidneys, liver and duodenum. Shane’s recovery will be slow and will take months. He will never be the same again. It was, undeniably, the worst day of our lives and it will never be forgotten. This tragedy not only caused physical damage but mental as well. I pray we all find peace and be able to live our life normally again in the future 🙏. I am so devastated that the shooter is living and breathing with zero remorse while Shane is in severe pain at the hospital.
I know we will get our justice!!! Most importantly, God is on our side🙏 Thank you God for saving my husband’s life
