      I just spoke to Sue and Todd, Jerry's wife and son, he remains in critical condition on a ventilator, with head and facial injuries.  He has not responded in 36 hours but is on a Sublimaze and Versed drip, so this is not unusual.  His vital signs, B/P, heart rate, are now stable.  He is in St. Anthony's Central, Denver CO.  Room 206, NICU (neuro intensive care).  

      Jerry has always been a very faithful person….please keep our good friend and Melanoma buddy in your prayers.  

      Thank you….

          Prayers on the way!  Jerry went several hours out of his way to connect with Knute and I when we were at NIH!

                Prayers said and a candle lit for Jerry.  I can't tell you all how much of a help he's been to me, how much encouragement and information he gave me.  I am so horribly sorry to hear of his accident and he will remain in my prayers, along with his family.

                    This is terrible news. Let me join the many others on this site who you have touched in wishing you and your family strength. All healing energy to you, Jerry.

                    Thanks for the update.  At least they have him stabilized, this is a good thing!  There's lots of healing energy in the air.

                      Thanks for the update, and for reaching out to Jerry's family.  He has helped countless people on this board, and I can't get him off my mind.
