Our friend, church member, brother Nate LaValley was involved in a motorcycle accident on August 16th. He suffered numerous broken bones, road rash over 60%-70% of his body, other injuries and he is in the ICU at Providence at this time. He was wearing a helmet and we are thankful for that. Unfortunately, since the time this hospital picture was taken, his condition has worsened as he has suffered a stroke in his cerebellum and undergone brain surgery to relieve swelling and deal with the blood clot. Last word I have is this surgery was successful, on top of the many surgeries he's already endured with more on the way. It is unknown, at this time, the full extent of his injuries from the stroke incident. Additionally, Nate has a tear in his aorta which cannot be treated at this time, as he cannot tolerate blood thinners due to some of his other injuries. Pray specifically there will be no more blood clot issues that may cause additional stroke activity while his aorta is healing. Nate suffered another setback this when he contracted a C. Diff infection, as a result of the high power antibiotics he is receiving.
With the cost of ICU care, surgeries, and the rehabilitation he will need, the challenges he will face both physically and financially are impossible to fully understand. I know Nate will bring everything he has to his recovery and I'm hoping you can join me in doing whatever you can to assist with his medical care. Even with insurance, an event like this financially devastating as he will be unable to work for as much as a year.
