Dale Stetina was involved in a car-bike accident in Lefthand Canyon on August 31, 2013. He was airlifted to Boulder Community Hospital in critical condition with a Traumatic Brain Stem Injury. He is showing signs of strong recovery but this is going to be a long road back with heavy rehabilitation. **** We have set up the Dale Stetina Trust fund. Please scroll over to https://rally.org/dalestetina to donate. Donations through Caringbridge dont go to Dale. Don't feel obligated to give more than a nice prayer. We are so humbled by the outpouring support so far, and it is a little embarrassing to have to promote this, but we know the world we live in; medical bills pile up fast. Plus there have been lots of questions regarding donations already.
As of yesterday, Dale is continuing his recovery at home!!!!! We are SO excited that this milestone has finally come!! One of his therapists from QLI flew out with him and has been here to help with the transition, which is such a blessing. Dale's sister-in-law, Barb, is also here for a bit to also get us all set up.
We are in the process of getting a schedule set up that will help Dale be successful at home. We are structuring his days around different therapies, physical activities, and other tasks. For now, he will need 24/7 supervision, although we will certainly be working towards more independence in baby steps.
Here are two links to some good news articles about his recent progress, and this milestone:
