Default Unfortunate Event

Yesterday My Air Force Vet cousin Randy Miller who Has been like a brother to me was in a tragic motorcycle accident while riding his Harley Road King in Northern NJ. He is currently in critical condition at Morristown Memorial Hospital and it will be a long road to recovery. He has suffered severe head trauma, many broken bones and collapsed lungs. He is currently in an induced coma while trying to stabilize his condition. Below is a gofundme link that his son set up in order to help him and his mom with the medical expenses. Please share this post and help generate support for him and his family. Thank you very much in advance for any and all support.

I can't figure out how to load images while on iPad so below is an Hdforums link where I have made the same post and attached photos.

Some good news to share. They have taken him off the paralysis medicine. He is on a ventilator and doing much better with breathing
He is on a feeding tube and more of the swelling has gone down around his eyes, face and head.

New update on Randy I got from his wife.

Some good news...They took Randy of the paralysis medicine yesterday, placed him on a ventilator and started a feeding tube. The nurse called this morning to inform us that he has started moving his lower extremities and reacts to pain. So they are increasing his feeding tube dosage. The drain in his head is still pulling fluid and blood out. They hope in the next 3 to 4 days as they decrease the chemically induced coma meds that he wake. No signs of seizures or upper body movement. Baby steps and progress. Once he wakes the neurologist can do CTScan to determin the actual damaged to his fractured skull. He still has a tough road ahead and keeps on fighting. The power in your prayers is definetly working. Please keep them coming. He has at least 3 more weeks in ICU. They still have him as in critical condition.

Latest update on Randy from his wife.

"Again, I can't thank everyone enough for your support and prayers. It's going tto be a very long road for recovery for Randy. He is a fighter!
Many of you ask to visit him,they ask for no visitors in the ICU. When things turn around for him and the will let him have visitors I certainly will let everyone know.
The latest on Randy as of yesterday: They are reducing the meds that are keeping him in the coma. He should be waking in the next 3 or 4 days. They hope to do surgery in 2 weeks. His facial structure is completely shattered. Doctors believe he will lose some sight in his right eye. They will be doing a MRI the beginning of the week to determine if there is any unforseen damage or damage to the brain itself. They estimate he will be in ICU for at least 6 weeks. Please keep praying for him! I can already see how the power of prayer is helping him heal."
