- About Chris Abad
On Saturday, May 9th, Chris suffered a near fatal neck injury while surfing. He was life-flighted to the Scripps Memorial Hospital. According to the Doctor, Chris was 5 pounds of pressure away from losing his life. He fractured his c1, c2 and possibly c3 vertebrae.
The good news is that the Doctor was astounded at Chris’s ability to feel and use his feet and hands, and even more importantly, the strength he exhibited while being tested for the extent of his injury. This is the good news. The normal worry with an injury like this is that the patient will end up in a wheelchair. Not for Chris. he’s too strong.
We all know Chris to be tough and it is his resilience that will be the thing that allows him to recover better than even his health care professionals believe he can. Whatever their prognosis is, Chris will prove that he is the exception and will prosper more and get better faster than anyone else in his predicament.
We want to thank everyone that knows Chris for all of their prayers, love and support. We pray for a fast and remarkable recovery. Sincerely, The Abad Family.
