Karing for Karl Benefit
On September 13th Karl was riding his motorcycle to work. On that day his life and the lives of his family and loved ones was changed forever. He was riding along Main st./Rt83 in Lemont, doing the posted speed when suddenly a car turned from the opposite direction directly in his path. With no time to react Karl slammed into the side of the car sending him flying off the bike over the car and onto the pavement. Karl was transported to Christ Advocate General in Oak lawn where he underwent emergency surgery to deal with the most serious injuries to remove his spleen, re-inflate a collapsed lung. With the collapsed lung and the spleen removal Karl also suffered a bruised lung, a lacerated liver, a compound fracture of the left forearm, a right wrist fracture, a broken pelvis, facial lacerations that required many stitches, broken front teeth , a fractured cheek bone and a very serious brain injury that has affected his motor skills. Karl remained unconscious, in a coma like state for nearly eleven days. He has limited mobility in his left leg and left arm. He is now undergoing intense speech and physical therapy at Providence rehabilitation center in Downers Grove. Karl's doctor's and therapists say his recovery so far has been miraculous but there is still a lot of work ahead.
