I just spoke with the hospital media rep and Rex's wife Marla has permitted them to release information on him so they were able to tell me more than usual.

Rex is still listed in critical condition in the Trauma ICU unit.

He has regained consciousness and is responding to questions.

His injuries consist of a broken left leg, broken right shoulder and a closed head injury. He is currently in a halo and they plan to do a tracheotomy tomorrow and also something called a J tube to help with his breathing.

They seemed to be guarded but optimistic .

Send cards to Rex at:

St Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center 350 West Thomas Road Phoenix, Arizona 85013
