Jerry had a bad accident last night.  He fell off a horse and was dragged.  He was airlifted to a hospital in Denver.  I just got off the phone with his wife Sue and she told me he is in critical condition.  He broke some bones in his face and needs surgery, but he can't have it yet because he is having respitory problems.   Please send prayers his way.

I am so sorry to hear this.  Does he have family in Denver?  We have a group of melanoma patients there who might be able to help out.

I don't know what hospital he is in.  His wife and son are in a motel somewhere near the hospital.  I can call her and find out where he is and if she would like some of the Denver people to get in touch with her.

Jackie, Once you find out I am in the area and would be more than happy to help out if needed. Please just let me know

This is Jerry's daughter. Dad was out here to visit with us. We live in the Buena Vista area (which is 120 miles from Denver). We are looking for a place where mom, my brother, and me can spend some nights while he is in ICU. It is a two hour drive to get to my house. We would like to be closer to the hospital than that. Any help you could give would be great and PRAY! Thanks, Tanya

Tanya,

I am trying to find you guys a place right now. I have spent all day talking with people. I am waiting for a return calls from most of them. I will let you guys know if I come across anything. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can do for you guys. I am not far from Denver at all.

People, note the date.  I'm "o'k for this year 2011 (as of 9/4)".  I posted a small update at the end of this post I just found from last year when the Denver Docs were sure I was dead.

I'm me, not a statistic. Praying to not be one for years yet.

Oh Jackie, Special prayers are being said for a very special man.   I know he was visiting with family there but I'm sure they could use whatever support can be given.

Thank you for letting us know.

Someone left a message in the chat room and I posted it on the off topic because I hadn't seen this thread. The hospital is St. Anthony Central in Denver.

I'm so sorry to hear this.  Jerry is tough and I pray for a full recovery.  Be careful melanoma warriors...Jane from Maine had multiple injuries from a fall from a horse a few months ago.  I guess we try to live life to the fullest!  Thinking of Jerry and his family.

 

Stay Strong

Jerry has been such a help to everyone on the forum.  He is the best.  Make sure you tell him how many people are pulling for him. 

Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

I have spoken to sue just a little bit ago. There is a little improvement with jerry, but still not doing well. She said the only thing that they need as of right now is a place to stay.  I am currently working on trying to contact friends and family in denver area to find them a place to stay as I live to far away. If anyone in the denver area or close surrounding has the space for 2-3 people or if anyone knows any one living in these areas that would be willing to open up their homes to the family that would be a great help
