Update on Cpl. Breck Scott; Fundraiser Continues

This is from Chris Redford (KTBS-TV):

This just in from from Cpl. Breck Scott's Family: "Surgeons told us the surgery was a success. Breck must be some type of Iron Man. Nurses will be with him the rest of the night. He is awake and talking after being under for 13hrs. The Medical staff was amazed."
This is after his fourth surgery, a complicated, "high-tech" procedure described by Cpl. Scott:
"The fourth surgery, they're going to go four inches down my leg and break it right here and put that apparatus on." That device will stretch his leg and allow the bones to connect again so that his injured leg can become the same length as his other one. "It could take up to two years to go in there and work on that bone and get it to grow and fuse to that ankle," Scott said.
Imagine the extensive follow-ups, physical therapy and rehab in front of him.  
SIGIS is still running our fundraiser for Cpl. Scott.  You can donate through this blog by hitting the "Donate" button in the sidebar or if you prefer to make your donation directly to the bank, you can make the check out to Breck Scott, put "For Deposit Only" on the back, and reference acct. number 5732676084. The address for Capital One Bank is 333 Travis Street, Shreveport, LA 71101.
He and his family are expected to stay in Houston for several weeks during this immediate recovery period.
Thanks to those of you who have already donated!  And remember: no amount is too small!  Pass up that Starbucks today and send your $5 to a good cause!
(Note:  Cpl. Scott, as far as I know, does not even read this blog or know of its existence and he is in no way affiliated with this blog, the author or the political opinions expressed here.)
