Here’s a new update video Big Boy put together giving us some insight into Scotty Cranmer‘s current injury status. This starts out with a little trip out to the Monster Cup races, which is part of why Scotty, Big Boy and Ronnie Surridge made the trip out to Las Vegas in the first place, followed up with an update on Scotty’s current status and then Big Boy packs up his bike to head back to New Jersey. Below you can also find an update for the day after this was filmed after they did the surgery. Expect plenty more updates in the coming days, but it’s all sounding good!
“UPDATE 10/16/16 POST SURGERY:
“Earlier today as doctors did their rounds they informed us that the brain hemorrhage is healing well on it’s own and will not require surgery. R2R is in the hospital with Scotty’s family and we just got this update as Scotty was transferred from the operating room to recovery. The doctor came out and said everything went well regarding stabilizing his spine. The surgeon clarified the injury and said that he has a C4 INCOMPLETE spinal cord contusion. The surgeon also fused C4 and C5 to add stability to the area of injury. Incomplete meaning that he can work hard and fight to fix the damage, but he’s not just going to wake up okay. “It’s really good news. It’s going to be a battle but Scotty can do it! You guys know how much fight and determination he has. He’s got this.” – Scotty’s wife, Lisa Cranmer
With the help of R2R and the case workers of the hospital applications are going out in the morning to secure a top level rehab facility for his injuries. If all goes well Scotty may be transferred before the end of next week. The comments and support from his friends, family and YouTube Subscribers has been overwhelmingly positive. We have shared your comments with Scotty and his family and the support really does make a difference. R2R is also currently working with Scotty’s insurance company to better understand what they will and will not cover. We know already they will not cover his medical transport to rehabilitation and that can be anywhere from $15k to $45k.
R2R will continue to assist the family through this difficult time and prepare them with information and guidance to give Scotty the best possible opportunity available! Your support is greatly needed and appreciated.” – Road 2 Recovery
“It was my last day in Vegas, The entire trip I spent the whole time with Scotty at the hospital with his Wife and Father. Even when I couldn’t see him I would just sit outside the hospital. The only time we would leave was to either go get food or head back to the hotel for some sleep. The guys over at monster convinced me to leave for a couple races at the Monster cup to take my mind off the whole situation. It was worth it a very cool experience and Scotty was right saying its on of the coolest events of the year. Scotty has made incredible progress and is going in for surgery tomorrow morning regarding his spine. He is an amazing individual that is incredibly strong and as long as all of us continue to support him, Scotty will make a full recovery. THIS VIDEO IS UPLOADED A DAY LATE BECAUSE OF TRAVELING.”
