For those of you who don't know the full story, Joyce fell from a ladder while cleaning her closet on July 2nd. She broke her tibia and fibula. Plates and screws were inserted into her leg during a significant surgery at St. Vincent's hospital. She is now in a rehab facility at Copper Trace (1250 West 146th Street, Westfield, IN 46074). During all of this, Ron developed a serious case of pneumonia. After admitting himself to the hospital on July 9th, he was transferred to the ICU and placed on a ventilator. He began a significant treatment regimen on July 15th wherein he was immobilized in a special bed that rotates 360 degrees to ease the pressure on his lungs.
Updates on this site will be made by Ron and Joyce's children: Shawn Richards, Alan Colquitt, and Jason Colquitt.
