Prayers sent for you Dustin and your family
Saw Dean at the Red Lion show today.
Update on Dustin.
Brain swelling and pressure has gone down enough that they removed the probe from his head. He does have movement on both sides which is great. The doctors say he is not in a coma because he has movement with a purpose. He has a slight fever, which may be do to infection or pneumonia. Until he stabilizes the reconstructive surgery on his face will have to be put off until he can be on his back for an estimated eight-hour surgery. Until he completely comes out of his coma then they will know if he has sight in his left eye.
So it is like two steps forward two back one forward.
Thats it for now.
Hey vince I didn't realize dustin is the offerson boy, until just now after reading your flyer. it's sad when anyone in our sport gets hurt. But even worse when you know there family, and how close they are to each other. Again prayers for all of them and dustin. And for every one else be carefull and drive safe...John

Recovery account for Dustin Offerson
I almost threw up when I saw the pics and then heard what happened to Dustin.I got hit last year while sitting at a red light by a drunk going 60 MPH.Thanks GOD for a seat belt I was wearing.I hope he makes a full recovery and is out hot rodding again.My prayers go out.
Just want to say thanks for all the support.prayers and wishes. Dustin is doing better and will soon be taken out of the I.C.U.and taken to Colorado Acute Rehab Center.Then on to Craig Hospital. If your in Denver on the 22nd of August DON"T miss his benifit auction,there will be lots of very nice stuff going across the block.Thanks again everyone!! Randy "the old man with the black truck"
thats absoutly terrible the pictures of the car literally gave me chills. Hate to see anyone get hurt in a car accident. especially in the hot rodding world. Good luck and a speedy recovery
Do you have a time & place for the auction?
Colorado51 there is a flyer on this thread page5 post #92 or you can see one on the Colorado H.A.M.Bers social group under events or on the main event calender.

was Dustin paralyzed in the accident? my brother went to craig hospital when he was .
Dustin is in ICU at Colorado Acute Rehab Center. Doing much better,he can hear and see you but doesnt respond to comands to well,but that was never one of his strong points anyway.He is going through physical and speech therapy every day he looks better. thanks again for all the donations to his upcoming auction at crown lanes sure to be a huge success.

Randy. I am sorry to hear about the accident and hope you and your family are doing well. You guys are a strong family. dont know if I could handle having one of my kids hurt. Anyway gonna try to make it to crown lanes...John
