Update: Laurie Roth

As many of you know, local syndicated talkmistress Laurie Roth was involved in a serious motorcycle accident with a deer. For awhile, she was listed in critical condition. She has steadily improved, and John Rook provides this update:

The stitches in Laurie's face have been removed and she looks much better.

She's has progressed to sitting on the side of her bed and spending time in the wheel chair instead of flat on her back. She cannot talk yet with her jaws wired speed the healing process of her face and mouth, but she writes her thoughts out to nurses, family members and a few friends who are allowed to stop by. We expect her to be standing in the next day or so and perhaps walking soon after that.

Laurie has been moved out of ICU and now has been moved to the NEUROLOGY floor of Sacred Heart.

After ten days of guest hosts for her radio program, her producer Rick Still, will take over the microphone within a day or so...Monday at the latest. Laurie's husband Rich will be
making a guest appearance on the show in the days ahead with a regular update on Laurie's condition...
