Jim fell coming home after an evening out attending a show at the Capital theater with his Mom on Saturday, October 12. He was taken to ER by ambulance on October 13. He had surgery to repair torn ACL a couple days later. The surgery was successful and he was transferred to Burlington Care Center for 6 weeks of immobilization followed by rehab. He went back into ICU with 4 units low blood count. He returned to Burlington Care but his surgery became infected. More surgery was required and he was put into a full let cast. However, his infection has returned and more surgery to remove the new parts was performed on November 19.
To summarize Jim has had 3 knee surgeries and 2 serious infections in 2 months. He is currently at GRMC and needs your help. Please check in on him as you are able.
