Welcome to all family and friends of Joe R, currently in critical condition but stable after being hit while at a stop light by another driver estimated to have rear ended his vehicle at 50 mph. We will attempt to provide a means to share information on this site, but as we navigate what’s available via WordPress, we aim to keep this page updated with news of his condition. Any needs of family and friends will also be shared here as quickly as possible.
As mentioned, Joe is in stable condition but experiencing brain swelling for which he had surgery to remove a portion of his skull to relieve the pressure. Friends were allowed to visit on this his first day in Intensive Care Unit (ICU), directed first not to speak to or touch him, and then being allowed to do both–a good sign. His family is currently requesting privacy, so please aim to be as unobtrusive as possible if visiting the hospital.
Thank you for sending prayers, love and light Joe’s way. His healing began the moment after his injury, and we all look forward to his next big hug.
