For Shawn Albritton

Update posted by John Mazzella On Apr 16, 2018

Everyone, here is some excellent news. Shawn and Mary Beth flew last Friday from Florida to Northern Virginia! Shawn is awake and eating regularly, able to move limbs and move around. His rehab begins today; as Shawn moves into this next phase of his recuperation, due to his optimal general health, doctors remain very optimistic.

Shawn and Mary Beth are happy and grateful to have so many generous friends and relatives. We are investigating the steps needed to complete registration as a not-for-profit charity, so stay tuned on that front.

Hopefully we should have some pictures to share with the community in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

Everyone, I spoke with Mary Beth this morning March 30, 2018, and the news is very encouraging. Shawn is breathing on his own, he is responding to pain and avoidance signals in all extremities, and he is opening his eyes. The swelling is reducing, and thanks to his own optimal physical health, doctors are tentatively more optimistic. All very good news. Mary Beth is by his side constantly. I told her that "she is surrounded by an invisible crowd of well-wishers, a motley crew indeed!" She laughed and agreed. In time, the plan will be to fly Shawn up to Inova Fairfax, where Mary Beth has made arrangements with the best surgeons and neuro rehab teams to begin rehabilitation.

Mary Beth feels the love and caring from everyone. She hopes to be back in Virginia as soon as is possible, and she asks that we continue to keep Shawn in our thoughts and prayers. For sure we can spare some prayers for Mary Beth and Violet and Steven as well! Get well soon Shawn!

Everyone, I have a new update! Continuing good news, Shawn is awake and is able to say a few words, he is feeding on his own, his G-I tract is working like a racehorse, and he expects to come home to Springfield VA Tuesday or Wednesday of this week! Excellent news all-around, thank you to everyone for your generosity! New details will start to come in more frequently, stay tuned...!

Hello Everyone, I heard from Mary Beth today, April 3, 2018. The news continues to be encouraging and on an upward trend! Shawn is aware and is making slow progress. He nodded his head ’yes’ to the nurse last night. He is calm and stable. He follows commands. He explored his environment by visual and tactile means. The neurologist calibrated him at a "4 out of 10", which means awareness and deliberate movements. Also he gives Mary Beth little kisses. He might even be flying home to Virginia this week. I’ll post this update to Facebook as well. Get well Shawn, we are all cheering for you!
