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.
