    Thoughts and prayers for him and his family.

  20. The most recent news from Gene's sister, July 6 update. Please continue to pray for my brother Gene Cromer. He is in critical condition in the Neuro ICU. He has had some complications and they are monitoring him. We really appreciate all of your prayers.

    I have tried to respect the fact that Ruth has enough on her plate without me asking her the same questions everyone is asking.

    Please continue keeping Gene in your thoughts and prayers. HRP
  21. Late last night we heard heard from Julie about Gene's condition . Gene had so much trama to his chest from impacting the steering wheel that he had a lot of bruising and swelling in his chest and neck. This caused the collapsed lung and delay of the back surgery.
    When he improved enough to with stand the surgery they went ahead and the surgery went well but he was again having trouble with his breathing and Anmed gave him a temporary tracheotomy and feeding tube, but due to the swelling and not being mobile, they have had to remove fluid from his lungs a number times.

    Because of the long term nature of the breathing issue recovery, Gene was transferred to St Francis in Greenville SC for critical care and therapy.

    please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers. HRP
