Latest Newman Update
Posted by BethNJ on 2/19/2020, 8:45 am
Late yesterday afternoon they released a brief update saying he was awake and talking with family and his doctors. No other details of his injuries or condition were given. They are asking for privacy and will update as they have more information. |
Dale, Jr and Kelley are good friends with Newman and family and yesterday Dale, Jr. said he just wants to know when he can go see him and is praying for his friend. So far, no one has been able to see or talk to him buy family from what I understand.
My concerns are the severity of his injuries, brain trauma as well as neck and back injuries? These take time to determine severity as well as things don't show up right away. I know all too well with my bad motorcycle accident in 2005 that was almost life ending for me and head trauma and multiple body injuries, broken bones and such. His hit was much worse due to speed and situation. I just hit the asphalt two times at 45 MPH. Took me 3 months in hospital/rehab inpatient and another 6-9 mo. of out patient therapy. My injuries are life long due to the TBI. Just saying this as I fear his situation could be much like what happened to Bobby Allison, Steve Park, Jerry Nadeau to name a few. Dale, Jr's career ended for multiple (5) concussions and just almost as bad. I pray Newman fully recovers and can get back to doing what he loves.
Keeping Newman and everyone involved in my thoughts and prayers for a complete recovery.
My "2016" saying is:
"All racers, mess a lot with Lagano" What goes around comes around". Lagano
**Praying daily for all my Posse family here**
Goooooooooo Teams Elliott, Byron, Blaney, Larson, JJ
