Posted on May 24, 2018Sam had successful 2.5 hour surgery yesterday to repair his broken clavicle and torn ligaments. (He fell while attempting to move from bed to wheelchair with no one in the room... clearly he is getting much more independent!) He had an excellent surgeon and great medical team. He's now home (in Stockton) trying to rest while his arm is in a sling with a ball underneath it to keep it elevated off his chest. He will be in a sling for 6 weeks, then start rehab on his shoulder somewhere between 6 weeks and 3 months. He will be able to continue the rest of his physical therapy after he sees the doctor next week, assuming he feels good enough to work. The next few days he is going to just eat and sleep, and say "THANK YOU" to everyone for all the well wishes.

Here are the video clips of police and fire visits and interviews in the years prior to the fire - not easy to watch. Mercury News and East Bay Times continue their Pulitzer-winning coverage of the Ghost Ship fire that killed 36, and disabled our son. The segment "Up the Stairs" shows the badly built stairs to the second floor, the only way leading out of the building. Imagine your own son caught in a fire - electricity out, no light, smoke, roar of the fire - and the only way out is down those stairs and then find your way to the front of the building...http://extras.mercurynews.com/ghostshipvideos/index.html
