Casey Henderson - Refugio

Postby MrBob » Mon Sep 25, 2017 8:47 am

If you have not heard, Casey Henderson was injured in Friday's night game between Refugio and Edna. He was halo flighted to San Antonio. Saturday morning, he underwent surgery for two fractured vertebrae in his neck. He is in ICU recovering. What makes this particularly tough is the Henderson's house was a total loss from Hurricane Harvey. If you would like to donate to Casey, you can on PayPal.me/caseystrong or via PayPal at caseyhendersonstrong@gmail.com

Thanks
It's a pretty good day when you're on your way and you like where you're going. And you've got what you want and you want what you've got and you're wise enough to know it.

Thank you MrBob. I am planning on visiting Casey on Tuesday. I'll be sure to pass on all of the well-wishes from this site, and I hope to provide us with a great report afterwards.

You can do it 8. We believe in you!

Prayers going up from Stamford for this young man and his family. Such a scary injury, on top of loss of his home. This family will need all the help and support it can get.

Anguish upon devastation - may this turn into a story of triumph over both, and may this young man, his family, friends, and teammates find strength in his recovery.

It is with great joy and pleasure that I am able to provide you all with an update on Casey. I visited him on Tuesday, and was able to spend about an hour with Casey and his parents, Nichole and Charlie. He was happy to see me, as I was with him. We visited and talked about various things. From the time I arrived until the time I left, Casey continuously was in great spirits and kept a smile on his face (Typical Casey.) I asked him "How's it going, how is your progress?"
He was proud to show me that he could turn both of his legs about 3 inches left, right and inward. He told me that his doctors described his right arm to be his weaker arm at the moment, as he lifted it up about 6 inches off the bed. And was excited as he lifted his left arm above his head. (I fought back tears of joy)
His parents told me that a physical therapist had begun visiting him daily as of Sunday. Last evening Nichole had also updated me that Casey was now able to swallow his pills on his own.
His room was decorated with several posters and well-wishes from his teammates, classmates, teachers and others. The hour I spent with him went by quickly, as I could have easily stayed longer talking football with Casey. I told the Henderson's about all of the support and prayers that were being sent up and named the communities on this board that have posted support for him. Nichole told me they could feel it, and they were thankful for everyone's prayers.
During my time there, both parents were taking calls and answering messages as they continued to deal with the repair of their home. It was overwhelming thinking about how much they are dealing with. This prompted me to ask Charlie "How are you holding up bud?" He answered "I'm okay. Casey keeps me going. I haven't seen him get down yet. How can I?" Quite emotional to say the least.

It is important to note that the doctors have told the Henderson's that it will be a long road to recovery. It will takes weeks and/or months before we will know to what extent of use Casey will have in all of his extremities. In other words, we will not know if there will be any partial/full/or impeded use of arms/legs for quite some time. The therapy will be of extreme benefit, but this journey will be incremental.

Please Continue to uplift Casey. Each of your prayers are providing the family with strength.
Thank you all that have contributed to the Paypal account. A special thank you to HawleyRocks. I passed on your message to the Henderson's.

Before I left the room, I was able to hold Casey's hand and pray with him. And as I opened my eyes, I saw Casey still in prayer, with a smile on his face.

Casey you mean so much to this team. And casey was surely were missed tonite. I bet a long TD would have went your way. Get better young man. Thanks Navarro for all your efforts for hurricane relief and the 2000 raised tonite from navarros fans. That was classy.

This is an update on Casey, per his mom, as of today Oct. 3rd:

In the past couple of days Casey can now, with assistance, be seated into a wheelchair and is able to move around a bit. This was nice to get out of the bed and room as well.
He is receiving physical therapy frequently, and is gaining strength in all of his extremities. When Casey is in his bed, he can now sit up, with assistance.
Casey continues to be in great spirits, smiling and joking quite a bit. He has set some goals for himself in terms of this recovery, but throughout it all continues to be thankful, appreciative and most importantly faithful.

These were updates that I received via text message. And I look forward to receiving more updates soon. I will be sure to pass them on. Thank you all for your words of encouragement, thoughts, support and continued prayers.

Keep it up 8!

Here is a positive update from Casey's mom: Casey is now able to sit up on the side of the bed by himself!

He is seeing a PT more frequently and making strides. Little by little, but certainly glad to hear. Keep it up 8! Lots of people thinking and praying for you.

Casey is making huge strides. He is no longer is an ICU room, and was placed into a normal visiting room a couple days ago. I'm trying my best to provide a photograph, but I'm not the most computer-savy. Every time I try to attach it it keeps telling me my file is too big. I'll find someone that can help me figure it out and post the pic asap. Just wanted to let everyone know that Casey is doing well and received a very encouraging report from doctors today.

From Nichole: "Doctors are telling us that Casey keeps amazing them. They think he will have very minimal, IF ANY, limitations in his extremities. If he keeps this up, they are hoping for a full recovery"

Praise God

Yesterday, Casey's mom sent me a message indicating that Casey was starting to move his right hand fairly well and with increased control. That's great to hear, because his right arm has been the one with the least mobility since the injury.
He's chugging along and getting better a little bit at a time. Continued prayers.
