As many of you know, my dad was left with serious injuries after he was struck by a car while out cycling with friends on Saturday October 27th. He has been at Stanford Hospital receiving treatment since and was removed from the ICU recently. In addition to a broken nose and a few broken ribs, he also suffered a broken neck, leaving him unable to move his arms, hands or fingers. Thanks to recommendations from a great friend, we have chosen to send him to Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colorado due to its outstanding specialized spinal cord and physical rehabilitation programs. This will allow him to completely focus on his recovery for the next three months. The facility offers great accommodations for family visitors and he has a brother and a few close friends out in Colorado. I live only about seven miles away from Craig and will be able to visit almost daily, which is why I'll be posting and providing updates on his progress, condition, accomplishments and share pictures of his journey. He needs all the support, positivity and prayers to keep his spirit up while he goes through this tough process and we would love for you to be a part of it. He will be flown out to Colorado on Monday and I will provide mailing addresses as soon as I can.
For those of you who know my dad, he lives and breathes for leading a very active lifestyle. He is the most upbeat, positive and giving human who somehow seems to have more energy than all of us combined. He's even earned the nickname, "Makes Coffee Nervous". With his determination and the support of his family and friends, we remain incredibly hopeful for a full recovery.
