If anyone is in the area, please stop by. From the sound of it, he's spending a lot of time alone, as his wife is taking care of 4 children. He still cannot speak due to damage to his throat and is quadriplegic although he does have some nerve connectivity.

I was just over there. Didn't get to see him as they took him to surgery. He has 2 back-to-back surgeries today.

I'll go over tomorrow. Now that I'm back for a while I will go see him more.

Thanks. Relay that many are keeping him and his family in our thoughts.

I just visited with Kenton. He looks 100% better than when I first saw him. He still has a trach in so can’t talk but is alert and awake.
Now here is the funny part. I went to high school with his father/in-law.
I’m back for a while so will go see him more often.

I saw Kenton this evening at TIRR Memorial Herman here in Houston. His fight continues, but he is doing well given the circumstances. He was alert and cognitively well engaged. I never knew him before this evening. He was brought to my attention by a 7th Grp friend who had done time OCONUS with him. Hopefully he can regain breathing function soon so he can get back to San Diego. Until then those of us in H-town will be looking in on him.

Thanks. I put the word out the to Texas SF guys in Houston to go visit him if they can. As he was with SF guys when he took the hit we kinda think he is one of ours also.

Echoing everyone else in thanks for going to visit Kenton. His prognosis is challenging. I'm sure it means a lot to him and his family to have so many come to visit.
