Only one week ago, U.S. Ski Team alpine racer Cody Marshall suffered a head injury from an accidental fall in downtown Park City.  Marshall is still in critical condition and surrounded by family and friends.  

We encourage you to show your support and send Cody a post card to his room.

The latest medical update from Cody’s blog states:

“For now we are letting the blood clots dissolve naturally. We removed the PIC line he had in his left arm to help this process. If they become more of a threat we will pursue more aggressive treatments such as Heparin. Right now he is receiving all his antibiotics through his central line.

A peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC or PIC line) is a form of intravenous access that can be used for a prolonged period of time.

A central venous catheter (“central line”, “CVC”, “central venous line” or “central venous access catheter”) is a catheter placed into a large vein in the neck (internal jugular vein), chest (subclavian vein) or groin (femoral vein).”

We’re thinking about you and pulling for you Cody.
