I am home now resting…..
WOW🤩!!! The amount of support my family and I have received in the past 24 hours has been overwhelming. The prayers, messages, well wishes, phone calls from the Ross County community, fellow Law Enforcement Officers, family, friends and countless others is astounding. I wish I could thank each and everyone of you personally.
I am still in Grant Medical Center but feeling very optimistic I will get home very soon. The MRI scans have shown no growth in the fluid/blood in mesentery tissue. I will speak to a surgeon about diminished blood flow in my right hip and develop a plan for recovery. I am very sore and in a lot of pain, however I am EXTREMLY thankful that I am upright. God is good and is listening to everyone’s prayers!!
I want to thank my wife, Kelly for her support. I cannot imagine the emotions she went through and is still going through. My parents, Bill, Betsy and my brother Brad for stepping up and helping Kelly and I out through this incident. Love you all.
I want to express my gratitude to the EMT’s/FD on scene, Adena Regional Medical Center staff, MedFlight staff and Grant Medical Center staff for the 1st class care I have received. My fellow LEO brothers/sisters and family at the Ross County Sheriff’s Office you all have been nothing short of amazing.
