Dear Family & Friends

by manager

Just a quick update. We arrived in Frankfurt, Germany this morning and were met by two Marines at the gate. They took us directly to the hospital in Landstuhl to have a quick meeting with the doctors and then to see Matt. He is stable for now with good vitals but he has extensive abdominal injuries which are still being assessed. He is still heavily sedated and will probably remain that way until he gets to Bethesda. If all goes well he is scheduled to be on a military transport plane on Sunday and Dale will most likely accompany him on that trip. Claudia & Carolyn will most likely fly back on a commercial plane. The medical staff here is top notch and are taking good care of him. We are staying at temporary family housing right on the base just a short walk to the hospital. We have been told there is a similar set up at Bethesda. Matt has a long road ahead to recovery but we know that with the love and support of family and friends, and with his strength and fortitude, he will get better. Thank you for your prayers and we will continue to update.
