Our 80-year old grandfather, Harvey, famous "red cake man" was unfortunately hit late Sunday night/early monday morning in a hit and run accident. The driver, a young Male in a pick up truck, drove off the road to hit him then proceeded to hit his car. Stopping only to ask if he was alive, before he took off. Hours later, a passer by saw him laying in the ditch and called 911. Police arrived at 3am, escorting him to the hospital. No one currently has information on the driver however NYSP are still looking for him. The extent to Harvey's injuries are substantial. He has 4 broken toes, a broken right fibula, 4 broken ribs, a laceration above his right eye and a dislodged nose bone. Multiple areas of missing skin, including his elbows and nose, and multiple areas of severe bruising and pain.
Harvey, prior to losing his long-standing local bakery, is a retired Binghamton fireman and retired Marine. Currently, at 80-years old, distributes newspapers for the Press and Sun Bulletin. Which of course is what he was doing when this accident occurred. Unable to keep Harvey down, he’s continually active and always trying to help out others with minor repair work. This will no doubt keep Harvey out of commission for a long while. Aside from missing work, there will be amass of medical bills and home care needed following his release from the hospital.

Poppy has fallen ill, suffering from either a cold or sinus infection, therapies have stopped temporarily until he sees his doctor today to see if he needs an antibiotic or just rest.

He's driving himself crazy sitting in the house all the time, and finds relief when appointments come about! Keep watching for updates and thank you all for your support!

Pops has been having his OT and PT routines for about a week now. It's a slow process but in time, comes healing.

On a medical note, he visited his orthopedic doctor yesterday and learned there are 4 bones in his ankle broke and booting/casting would only make his ankle worse. So they'll have to continue to heal on their own until he sees the orthopedic surgeon this coming week. Fingers crossed no surgery!

The first week home, pops has been in a lot of pain and discomfort, but being here at home is much better than the hospital!

Pops is having difficulties sleeping and getting comfortable with his ribs, shoulder an leg injuries. However, thanks to an anonymous donor, he recieved an aid to help move his legs at night, so now he can get himself up to use the bathroom and that helps tremendously!!

Today, I got him into the barber chair and gave him a cut and beard trim. Boy did he need it!! Look how great his scar is healing, and his black eye, is almost gone!!

The eagle has landed!! It was a tiring first day back home for Poppy. He met with his home care nurse manager and his OT and PT is
scheduled for three times each week. He will be home for Christmas and is healing nicely!! Now just to catch the guy who ran him over!!

NYSP talked with Poppy and explained they have 4 officers on this case, and they're doing all they can with what little info they have. They did confirm that if he is caught, he will be charged with fleeing the scene of an accident, which is a punishable offense! Let's help find this guy and put him behind bars!!
