Yes to prayers and as others have said, thank you Douglas for keeping us all in the loop.
Larry Marcum Update –– Day 8 Since Crash
Saturday 28 March 2020
Larry was injured last Saturday, March 21, 2020.
His wife, Pat, says Larry is still in the trauma unit, has a broken collar bone and 14 broken ribs – he took quite a hit. Fortunately, there does not appear to be any loose bone fragments creating additional problems. She has not seen him yet and phone conversations for Larry are difficult and tiring. His condition is serious but improving daily. There is still a section of collapsed lung, difficulty breathing and breathing is not without pain. Managing his oxygen levels is one of the primary concerns. It appears his lumbar fractures will not require any surgical intervention. The drain tubes are still in his chest and she thinks he has only had to have 1 more pint of blood (now at 6 or 7 pints).
Pat thinks it is too early to try and contact him but maybe next week. She will let us know if Larry has not tried to reach out himself.
She thanks those who were with him because they, along with the decision to life flight, most likely saved his life.
It will be a long road to recovery and Larry told Pat he appreciates everyone’s thoughts and prayers, keep them coming.
