Cary's Recovery & Support 51945710_1602937305698795_r.jpeg
On Wednesday, October 14th, Cary was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital with injuries sustained from gunshot wounds. Although the injuries were described in local reports as "non-life threatening," he spends day 3 in a medically enduced coma, fighting for his life in the ICU. Friday he had surgery to reconstruct both intestines, which were severely damaged and partially removed. Due to swelling, the surgeon is unable to safely operate on the remaining visceral organs that are severely damaged. The medical staff will continue to evaluate the swelling, and attempt to complete corrective surgery when the risk of complications is reduced. While the incident is under investigation by the Billings PD, an arrest has been made. Details can be found in the attached link.  The Ables family is known for their stubborn, independent nature. We created the GoFundMe page to help aid in travel costs, medical expenses, and anticipated recovery costs. As many of you know, Cary has been a resident of California and Washington State the majority of his life. He came to Montana from Northern California to visit family in May 2018. During his visit, he lost his personal belongings along with his place of residence in the wildfires that destroyed the lives of many. A caring bridge site has been created for Cary, and both pages will be reviewed and updated daily. Please feel free to share any pictures, comments, or sediments. Your thoughts and prayers are much needed and appreciated during this crucial time.
