(Update) Everyone Loves Dale

As some of you may already know, yesterday, Dale was involved in a serious accident in which he sustained a spinal injury. Throughout the night, he underwent surgery to prevent further injury. A second surgery has been scheduled for Wednesday AM. Some hopeful news is that when he wakes up, he seems to be aware of his surroundings and can answer our questions with nods. I can understand how anxious and scared you may all be not knowing what is going on with someone you care about. Therefore, I will try to do my best to keep regular status updates posted for you after discussing the updates with my family. 

During this difficult time, my family and I appreciate the tremendous outpouring of love and support you have all shown us. It makes such a difference to know how many of you love and care for Dale. We are trying to let Dale rest and recover as much as he can before going into surgery on Wednesday. I know you are all anxious to see him but currently visitors are limited to immediate family. So we pray and hope for the best possible outcome on Wednesday and post-op so that you can all visit and let him know yourselves how much he is loved. 

If you would like to contribute in anyway, please keep Dale in your thoughts and prayers. If you also want to let dale know that he is in your thoughts and want to send him words of love, encouragement, or funny stories/memories feel free to post them on the facebook page "Get better Dale, We love you." (Whenever he is awake I will read them to him). I think the most important step to his recovery is to let him know how important he is to us and how so very much he is loved. 

My email is Lisa.ahn00@gmail.com if you need to reach me. Once again, thank you for all your kind words and support and keep rooting for Dale.

-The Ahn family
