Prayers for Joshua

Last night a recently famous local rider was critically injured when a car pulled out from a stop sign in front of Joshua.
He was riding with a few others yesterday evening.

Joshua started a riding group largely with the use of social media, and it has grown to many cities in WI. They often do rides to meet up in Chicago with 'chicago united', etc.

There have been some critics of the group, but by and large, it has overwhelming success and growth.
Many have T shirts, stickers, caps, etc. with the logo.

This is the main face book group page:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/Wisc...cleGroupRides/

Lately, WMGR has been doing ride meets on Tuesday nights in Milwaukee. Taco Tuesdays

Tonight- we met- about 80 of us and rode to the Hospital where he is in the ICU- critically injured.
I have heard the extent of his injuries- I'll sum it up as critically injured.

We had called ahead, and the security of this large hospital system were ready for us and allowed us to ride up to the top floor of the main parking garages. Everyone was cool, no one rev bombed, etc. We showed respect and they were hanging out with us on the top of the parking garage- no problems or drama.







We all signed that large card you see there, and they'll put it in his room.



Please pray for our injured brother, his long term prognosis is not good. Godspeed Joshua Hoeft

UPdate on Joshua,

He has been out of ICU and in a regular room.
He has a trachesotomy, but is breathing on his own.
He keeps his eyes open and was tracking me in the room some. He can grip his hand.
He still has the right side of his cranium skull bone removed.
He is in contact precautions and is on Vacomycin IV.- I didn't ask the staff about the medical things.

I plan to go see him about once a week, in hopes of seeing progress.

We're still praying for you Joshua for a good and hopefully full recovery.

Any word on the accident report?
I hope he sues the crap out of the cager as he'll probably never work again.

Experience is a harsh teacher, but you'll learn by God you'll learn!

Damn, Sorry to hear this brother. I hope he gets through this well, and in tact... I have heard of that group. Never heard anything bad about them...

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

Don't know on the accident report.

I've been to see him a few more times, not much change. He still tracks you when you're on his left side with his eyes. He's trached and can't talk even if he is able to.

Time will tell. Last time I saw him they still have his right skull bone removed.

There is a big benefit ride for him today to try and help with his bills. I thought he had a good job with good insurance, and hopefully the insurance of the person causing the accident.

I went to see Joshua again today

They reversed his trach, so he's breathing thru his own mouth/nose again on his own!
Still not talking, I think I heard him make some noise though, it's a start.
Still have the Rt part of his skull bone removed too.

His hygiene is great, they keep him cleaned up and clean shaven!

God speed Joshua!
