YOUR HELP IS NEEDED
Tom Carter is one of my oldest friends and is always there for the cycling community. Now he needs our help! On Monday night Tom Carter, the Bee Farm race director and YGR Wounded Rider Program director, was admitted into the Medical Center of the Rockies ICU with a ruptured esophagus and fluid in his lung. During the week he had surgery to remove part of a lung, was sedated and put on a ventilator. I haven't heard how Tom sustained these injuries. As of Friday morning he is not able to have visitors.
The following message was posted to Facebook by Tom's sister in law.
"Tom Carter was hospitalized Monday night and is in the ICU. He is critically ill after rupturing his esophagus. His brother Charlie Carter and I know he has helped a good many in the community - and we are asking that folks gather support for him.
He had surgery Monday night- part of his lung was removed. He is sedated and on a ventilator. They are hoping to remove the vent today.
He cannot have visitors at this point. It is going to be a long road to recovery for Tom.
I'll post updates as they come. Charlie is by his side. Message me if i can answer any questions.
