I just wanted to give everyone an update and ask that if you receive this, to please share it for me as we have received such a large outpouring of support that is just impossible for us to keep everyone updated. Dave is in critical, but stable condition. He has many broken bones in his neck, upper back, shoulders, face and head. He has a brain injury and is being monitored on a minute by minute basis by the very best medical people. The days ahead will likely give us many improvements and set backs but overall his condition is not getting worse, which is the best news we can hope for right now! It’s very good news.
We appreciate all of your prayers, positive energy, support, and offers of help. I’d name everyone individually but don’t want to leave anyone out, just please know that we recognize every action, large or small, and love you all. Our family and, especially, David and Isabella, are receiving amazing care and attention from friends, family, Oakland County, Crittenton Hospital, the City of Rochester, and Rochester Schools. What we need most now is your continued prayers for Dave to have a quick and full recovery.
We love and thank you all!
