Unexpected Accident

Last Saturday evening John Saalwaechter was in an accident involving his scooter.  Apparently during his ride there was a chain place across a lane that wasn’t there before, and it caught him in the neck area.  Currently he is in St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis.  There was no fractures but there was considerable injury to his spinal cord.  Surgery was done on Monday to relieve pressure that was on the spinal cord.

He has had some pretty rough days through Tuesday evening / Wednesday morning.  But Wednesday evening they moved him to a regular room and he is doing better.  He has regained some movement but it is going to take some time.  They expect him to have a full recovery.  It is anticipated to move him to rehab tomorrow.

Please keep John in your thoughts and prayers as well as Vicki. 

I’m sure that a card would be much appreciated – send to:
