On Sunday afternoon (8-8-10 @ 5pm), Chris sustained an injury that fractured the C4 and C5 vertebrae in his neck. He was airlifted to Methodist Hospital (Neuro Critical Care Unit) in Indianapolis. On Monday (8-9-10) at 2pm, Chris underwent surgery for 3-4 hours to fuse together the broken vertabrae and to stablize them from causing any further damage. At the moment, Chris is mostly unable to move from the shoulders down. However, he has been able to move his right big toe and make his right arm muscles twitch. Also, he's been able to feel touch, tingling, and hot and cold from the beginning. He never blacked out nor did he sustain any kind of head injury. He has been alert and himself the whole time (unless medicated for pain or surgery). As one might expect, he is emotional and trying to process the whole thing, but he's fighting like a champ to stay positive. This is a critical time for his family and friends to rally around him and give him our full support. Chris is currently at the Rehabilition Hospital of Indianapolis (38th and I-465 on the westside). Having visitors really uplifts his spirits. The best time to visit Chris is between 6-9pm during the weekdays or anytime on Saturday or Sunday. Please check the "Journal" section of Chris' profile for the latest developments !!
Please be in prayer for Chris !!
