Update on Marty Katz

For those of you that have been asking about the status of Marty, he's still in the hospital but progressing. Marty Katz is the Lakemont rider who was struck by a car a little before dawn on Tuesday, October 12, while stopped at a light on Horatio Avenue in Maitland.  His family has started a web page, so you can keep tabs on his progress - go here -> : http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/martykatzrecovery and register - you’ll then get daily reports from Team Marty. 

Marty is still in very serious condition.  When in surgery, Marty’s doctors stopped after placing a pin (a very long pin) in Marty’s femur.  They did not attempt fixing anything else due to lung complications.  Marty’s ventilator use has been as high as full-time but now is at 50%.  I can’t pretend to understand the medical details but Marty is in a serious and long fight.
