Can I ask if you guys can keep my Brother-In-Law in your prayers. Those of you who made the 'Tunnel Tour' should remember Robbie, who brought the Fiero group on the tour with us.

Last night / early this morning Robbie was transporting another Fiero back to his garage when he stopped along the way to check on the trailer. While securing the car, he was struck by a vehicle and is presently in critical condition.

He has suffered numerous broken bones including both legs, one arm, several ribs, and a massive head injury. He was lucky that the friend helping him transport the car was an off duty EMT. It was he who saved Robbie's life until the ambulance arrived.

Right now he is in a coma at the hospital and the doctors are trying to stabilize him. We're taking it hour by hour right now and sure could use your prayers for him.

You know I will Benny! Nothing like the brotherhood of Fiero! ( I do belong to that bunch also )

Although EOC is a close second.

Update on Robbie's condition. He's still in a coma, he is on a respirator, and still in critical condition. He is scheduled for another surgery early tomorrow to try and salvage his left leg which is broken in three places below the knee. The major concern seems to be keeping the blood flowing to the foot.

The head injuries are severe, and there is some brain swelling and bleeding going on but the Doctors say there is good brain activity. He has some severe injuries to his head / skull that I just won't begin to describe.

Broken bones pretty much all over from his head to his toes. He has responded to some stimuli - he has moved a finger and a toe. Not a lot to report other than he's hanging in there.

The family appreciates all the prayers during this time and ask that you keep him in your prayers.
