On Wednesday, October 19th, Ben had a motorcycle accident in south Grand Forks, ND that resulted in a severed spinal column (between T5 and T6). As well he suffered from two broken ribs, minor lacerations, two small perferations in his left lung. Wednesday evening he was transferred via air to the Hennepin County Medical Center. He is presently being treated at Craig Rehab Hospital in Denver, CO.
He has full use of his arms and hands as well as strong respiratory function. He has no feeling or movement below mid-chest.
Thank you to everyone for your faithful prayers and thoughts.
