Good News For Injured Club Racer Luis Garcia

From an e-mail:<BR><BR>Luis Garcia/RickyRacer opened his eyes today!<BR><BR>He's still medicated (morphine drip) and he has trouble focusing. They started talking to him and was aware that his wife was there. He moved his legs and arms (one's broken). (surgery to repair broken bones to commence soon)<BR><BR>They've ruled out any damage in spinal cord. He's not moving his feet yet, but this may just take time. They've put him to sleep because they're going to put a breather tube in his trachea to ease things.<BR><BR>He's getting better!<BR><BR>Thanks for all your support and prayers and thoughts and letters. He responded to them! He responded to people. His wife Juanita was reading all these notes and postings to him.<BR><BR>Luis Wassmann<BR><BR>[A personal note] I would like to send a special thank you to for sharing the news about injured racers. You have helped spread the word and bring in prayers and monetary gifts during one of the toughest times a family could endure. Thank You All!<BR><BR> <BR>
