Ryan Morais Update

We received the following update on Ryan Morais’ condition from Jackie Short…

This has been a week filled with Doctors appointments and surgery!  We saw the neurosurgeon first where we got the good news that Ryan's vertebrae are not fractured.  Our next appointment was with the oral surgeon.  He feels confident that Ryan's jaw will heal.  Ryan had a three-hour surgery on Tuesday evening where they put a plate in to put back together his upper jaw that was broken in 4 places.  They also rewired his whole mouth to improve alignment.  His mouth will now be wired shut for the next 6 weeks. He spent the night in the hospital, but is home again.  We are getting pretty good at finding things to put together in our blender. The last appointment was with a neurologist.  He is going to help us with the post concussion syndrome care.  Ryan's spirits are good as he now begins the healing process.

We cannot begin to tell you how blessed we as a family feel from the outpouring of support given by our family, friends, Motocross Community, and fans during these past two weeks.  If I know one thing for sure it is that the Motocross Community is much more that just people who come together every weekend to race.  We are one big family.  Ryan, Krue and I feel beyond loved and cared for.  We appreciate every prayer, thought, email, card and donation more that you will ever know.
