Ralph Shuey


Post by chestatee »

Ralph suffered an aneurysm in the left lobe of his brain Monday evening. He’s in the hospital with some ambulatory and speech issues but is improving daily. Physical therapy is going well. He did stand up today and is working on talking. We don’t have a release date but remain optimistic and will update often. Please keep Ralph, Basye and the Shuey family in your thoughts and prayers!

Thank you,
