Just wanted to give you updates on two people who were seriously hurt over the past few days. Of course, first up, we all know now about Bill's cornerback, Damar Hamlin and the cardiac arrest he suffered on the field on Monday night. Well there is some good news. Damar is showing signs of improvement in a Cincinnati hospital, according to an uncle who spoke to the NFL Network yesterday. Dorrian Glenn said Hamlin is still in intensive care and still sedated, but has improved to 50% oxygen on a ventilator . . . down from 100% when they brought him in. He added, quote, "I'm thankful that he's still here, he's still alive, and he's still fighting. We're just taking it day by day and continue to let the medical staff do what they do." On a related note, the GoFundMe for Hamlin's toy drive surpassed $5 MILLION yesterday.
Meanwhile, "Avengers" star Jeremy Renner posted a selfie (which you can see below) from his hospital bed yesterday. He captioned it, quote, "Thank you all for your kind words. I'm too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all." There's been no official update on his health. Last we heard, Jeremy was in critical but stable condition after suffering blunt chest trauma and "orthopedic injuries" while plowing snow at his Nevada property. Meanwhile, the local sheriff of Washoe County held a press conference yesterday to explain what happened. Jeremy was operating a 14,000-pound snow groomer called a PistenBully, and was helping a family member whose car had gotten stuck on his private road. After getting the car unstuck, Jeremy hopped out of the snow groomer, thinking it was in park. But it started rolling. He tried to jump back INTO it, but fell and got run over. Apparently, neighbors brought towels and rendered first aid until help could arrive. There was NOT a doctor present, as previous reports had claimed. It's not clear if a mechanical issue caused the accident, or if Jeremy had failed to put the machine in park before jumping out.
We wish both Damar and Jeremy quick recoveries and continue to pray for them and their families. We'll keep you updated when we find out more information.
