Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement, along with all of your prayers. Thank you for visiting. Michele Staley (Peter's daughter) will be updating this website regularly so there is one place family and friends can come and find out how Peter is doing.
Peter fell off a ladder at home on July 18, 2017 resulting in two fractured vertebrae and a third chipped vertebrae. He also had internal bleeding which resulted in him being airlifted from Davenport to the University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City. He was in the hospital there for one week and made enough progress to be moved to a rehabilitation center to continue physical therapy so he can be fully ambulatory again (and go on the Alaskan cruise that he and LaWanda had to cancel due to this accident).
