Update on Mark McGovern's Condition

Aug. 1, 2011

The Club received good news on Mark McGovern condition on Sunday evening after his sister Grace posted the following on the Mark McGovern Support page on Facebook.    

"Hey everyone, just another update on Marks progress. Mark is still currently in San Francisco General Hospital, it has now been 5 weeks since the incident. Marks condition has now improved from being critical to serious and he has came a very long way from the first week.

From being told Mark may not make it through the first night to beating a liver condition, pneumonia and MRSA (superbug) alongside his brain injury, he has fought everything that has been put in front of him.

Mark has now regained consciousness and is fully aware of his surroundings and everyone around him. Mark is yet to talk but has been trying to lip words in order to communicate with us, Mark has attempted a few steps with assistance. Please keep Mark in your prayers and thoughts as he has still a long way to go. Doctors and Nurses here in San Francisco General Hospital have been absolutely amazing. Mark is still at risk of infections so please please please keep him in your prayers as it has definitely been everyones prayers, Gods help and Marks fight that has brought him this far.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful staff in San Francisco General Hospital for the excellent work they do everyday and are continuing to do. Again thank you to all for your continued prayers and thoughts, we will be forever grateful. Mark is an inspiration to everyone, we are so so proud of him to shaking hands with Nurses to giving us a smile it is a true reflection on what a gentleman he is"  

The club asks that everyone continues to keep Mark and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
