Our son is coming home on Wednesday.It has been a very long and stressful time for Shane as well as his family and friends.  These last three weeks at Craig were filled with testing of cognitive and motors skills.  We are so pleased he has done well.  But it cannot go without commenting on the passionate care that Dr. Blei from Denver Health provided Shane.  The first 4-6 weeks in the Denver Health rehab area was EXTREMELY trying, but Dr. Blei encouraged Shane and helped the rest of us with the struggle.

Shane remains on medication for both the brain injury and a large blood clot behind his knee that he developed while in the hospital.  The clot is being closely monitored and will continue to be treated for 3-6 months; it has not grown since the initial discovery due to the thorough and quick acting staff at Craig.  On a good note he was able to play nine holes of golf yesterday.  Albeit, he wasn't pleased with his performance...but he's pretty hard on himself.

After his release from Craig inpatient he will continue with outpatient care three days a week.  At this time we do not know how long this will last.  However, we all know Shane is a fighter and he will be back to the Shane we all know and love with the help and support of all of you.

I have to admit that neither Mike nor I have chosen to visit this website until now.  It has been just that difficult.  We can't begin to express our sincere gratitude for everyone's thoughts and generosity; it is truly wonderful that he has experienced such an outpouring of emotions at this horrible accident.  Shane is overwhelmed by the kindness that all of his family, friends and evern strangers have demonstrated.  He can't quite express his feelings knowing such kind and caring people. 
Love Shane, Mike and Laurie:  Thank you so much to everyone!

Good morning,
Hope everyone is doing well. I wanted to provide an update on Shane and give more information about the fundraiser.

The fundraiser is this Saturday, June 30th at Mullen High School, from 2pm-5pm. The fundraiser is not a formal event. The event is more like an “open house”. It is going to be a casual setting, wear whatever is comfortable, probably shorts given the heat wave we have been having. There is a time frame but you can show up whenever and leave whenever between 2 and 5. The auction will be closed around 4:35, that will give us time to go through all the lists. You do not have to stick around until the end to collect your items if you are the winning bid. The lists will ask for all of your information that way we can call you and inform you of the winning bid if yo...u leave before the end of the fundraiser. There are many items so closing the auction will be hard work for everyone involved. When you first get to Mullen, there will be a sign of where to park. There will be a table to pay for the food, which is served more as buffet style, serve yourselves. There will also be a table with card boxes if you want to give Shane or Ryan cards, and also a separate donation box. We will also, provide computers to make a donation on our fundraising site if you want. All of the auction items will be displayed on tables with a bid list in front of the item. Please don’t be afraid to ask if you have any questions.

Shane: Not too much to report on except he is improving. Physically he is still doing great. Mentally he is still getting confused and he is still experiencing a loss of memory, short and long. We did get good news yesterday, Shane was able to finally go outside for the first time in a month n half. Hopefully he will be able to continue that everyday until he is released from the hospital. Everything is still day to day but he is slowly improving.

We thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts for all of the love and support. We are closing in on $20,000 already raised for Shane, which is unbelievable. At the fundraiser I will try and get up and say a few words, and provide an update on Shane as well. I look forward to seeing all that can attend on Saturday.

Best Regards,

Kellen Wise
