This went up today.  Well written blog post that describes much of what happened last Saturday.

03/12 - 1550
Jeff underwent three surgeries yesterday (3/11). He was in the OR from 7:30am to 5:00pm. This included the first of his pelvic surgeries.
The breathing tube has been removed, but his throat irritation still makes it difficult for him to speak.
Visitors are still not allowed at this time. His wife Deb was told that when they finally do allow visitors, the hospital will be very strict, only allowing one visitor at a time (who must sign in and out).
Jeff is able to think clearly and has said that his arm is giving him the most discomfort at the moment.

Deb Adler posted this late last night.
Tuesday, 3/10 Today Jeff had tests done to the veins and arteries in his pelvis to find the source of potential bleeding. Three small areas were found and received embolization. Hopefully this will remedy his need for further blood transfusions. He still has a breathing tube and is being kept relatively sedated due to his agitated state. He does respond to commands.

Wednesday's plan is to surgically repair his broken pelvis and arm. Hopefully he will be stable and the surgery can proceed.

When Jeff has been awake, I've read all the text and email messages that we have received. He squeezes my hand and shuts his eyes after each one. We sincerely appreciate each and every one! The outpouring of concern and most importantly prayers has been an incredible blessing.

If anyone would like to send a card, our address is:
7030 Timberfield Place, Chestnut Hill Cove, MD 21226.

Thank you again for your support in so many ways! We believe that God is the supreme healer so please continue praying.

Updates on Jeff's condition has been spilling out on FB.  I'm passing along here.  Note the snail mail address at the end.

Kevin L Suffecool *UPDATE #2*
As of last night (Mon 3/9), Jeff was awake. He is still on a breathing tube, which is making him uncomfortable and unable to talk yet, but he is responding to yes/no questions via a chart.
Jeff is also running a high fever and the hospital is trying to bring that down quickly. The docs are not sure if it is an infection or the body's natural reaction to trauma. He will require a skin graft on his leg.
The hospital scheduled Jeff's first pelvic surgery for today (Tues 3/10). They will continue to build the structure around the pelvic fractures. He is still losing blood through his arm injury, so he has had some transfusions. He will also have surgery on his left arm today, as they need to slow/stop the bleeding, and potentially add more bone support.
Jeff does not remember the accident, and he does not yet know that his friend Arthur was killed. Jeff is trying to ask questions, and his wife Deb is trying to give the best answers she can without upsetting him.
Deb is holding up well, and working to keep conversations with Jeff upbeat and positive. She said that right now, cards and expressions of support would be the most helpful thing for Jeff.
If you wish to send a card, here is the address:

Look for details here on when / where the viewing will be and when it's OK to visit the hospital.

Female was released.  Male flown to shock trauma has been in surgery for a few hours now.  He is a member of the BBC.  A few other riders were injured but did not need treatment.  Driver was arrested on the scene.  Cannot reveal the names at this time.

Cyclist from either direction can now cross the bridge that spans RT 32.  Car traffic still limited to west bound only.

Forum: Volunteers

FWIW, as a 2019 parking crew volunteer, I would recommend maybe putting up a "fence" along the far side where the house is the day before the event?  I was parking people up to the "long grass" edge and someone from the house was yelling at me to make sure when people leave, they don't drive over their lawn.  Fair direction.  I did ask people to not drive forward when leaving but of course I have no idea if they did.  Anyway my thought was to "steal" some CX poles and tape just to place along that edge for 2020.  Would take maybe 10 minutes and at least help reduce any future incidents.  That and I expect the cost would be zero.

Thanks for listening!

-Terry
