Josh McGuire Crash At 201 Speedway
The Josh Mcguire crash sent shockwaves through the dirt racing community this week. If you missed the horrible dirt racing crash you can see it in the videos posted below. The team has been posting regular updates via facebook on the condition of the dirt late model driver, see those in quotes below.
Today’s Josh Mcquire Crash update:Well after a rough day he is very excited to have walked for the 3rd time today (well that and Sons of Anarchy is on–his favorite show). Early today he was up twice today. Once to walk 3 steps forward, 3 steps back. And then about 5 o’clock he got up and sat in the chair for about 30 minutes. These were not easy feats–it took a lot out of him each time and was in a lot of severe pain. But the goal was to move and that he did! Third time tonight was a charm–he asked to get up and walked to his room door and back with some reduction in pain this time. Still in the hospital–we have to get the pain controlled before we can go home. We will try again tomorrow. We can’t brag enough on the St. Mary’s staff–they have been so compassionate and such great cheerleaders. Plus–we don’t want to forget each of you…Thank you for cheering us on with you messages and prayers.
Monday Josh Mcquire Crash update: we didn’t get to come home–joint decision between him and doctors. He had extremely severe headaches today although we have decreased the dizziness and pretty much eliminated the nausea. However elevating him and trying to become more mobile is really a struggle right now just bc his head hurts. We will try again tomorrow. They don’t want to rush him. He has been very talkative tonight and ate so well including feeding himself a grill cheese and pudding which another good step. We have been brought to tears by everyone’s support and I’m afraid I’ll leave someone out if I try to list. I have not had a true moment of breaking down until I see the prayers and the events that are being organized–I hope each of you know how amazing you are–sincerely amazing! God is a healer, God is a provider…God is Good! Thank you…thank you…thank you…
