George’s Story

Site created on August 18, 2018

George was out for a motorcycle ride on the night of Wednesday, August 15th, when he was hit by a Chevy Silverado truck at the intersection of Route 273 and Appleby road. He was wearing his helmet and Kevlar jacket, but the driver of the truck did not see him and hit him at full speed on his left side. A nearby officer was at the scene quickly and an ambulance followed soon after. He suffered significant injuries and underwent treatment at Christiana Care Hospital. He underwent rehab at  Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital.  He returned home, and had another surgery on his leg in December.  He is awaiting several more surgeries on his arm .

Journal entry by Theresa Jensen

Hello Everyone,
Today George is having another surgery on his left arm/shoulder.  He’s having two nerve grafts that will hopefully give him some movement back in his arm. The surgery should last about five hours. 
Please pray for the success of this procedure. It will be about six months before we know if the procedure is successful and how much movement he will regain. 
Please also pray that he doesn’t have too much pain after the surgery.  Hes really tired of post op pain. 
I’ll update again after surgery.  Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes.
