Status w/ Doug Kaplan
I know many of you have expressed concern about Doug, Frank's son, who was
hit by a line drive in the head with a baseball on Thursday. I spoke to
Frank last night, and this is what the general picture is as of last night.
There was surgery involved to relieve pressure on Doug's brain due to
swelling and clotting. This has affected his motor coordination and speech.
The first few days were very touch and go, but Doug is now showing
significant improvement and is off all monitors. Apparently he is able to
walk although his speech is still affected significantly. Frank's family
will not really know the long term projections for full or partial recovery
for a while. In terms of what we can do, I think its simply making sure that
Frank can focus on family at this point and to send our thoughts and/or
prayers for Doug.
