On Tuesday, Mark suffered a ruptured aorta. He was quickly transported to Summit hospital and within 30 minutes of his arrival he was rushed to Centennial and straight to pre-op. He was in surgery for 9 hours and has been kept sedated since. On Thursday, Mark underwent a 2nd surgery which was mainly exploratory and cleaning after which they closed his chest.
Mark is not out of the woods and has a long road ahead of him, but the surgeons words were very encouraging and there are good signs that he has avoided some of the complications that they were concerned about. It's a waiting game at this point. They are going to slowly start bringing him out of sedation Friday and should be learning more.
The support for Mark is amazing. From his immediate circle to all his friends from the Casey James, Parmalee and Trick Pony fan clubs.
It's too soon for Mark to have visitors. He does have family here and people watching over him, I will let you all know when it's ok.
This fund has been set up to help offset his expenses. We will provide an address for cards and such soon.
Let's send Mark all the strength we can and help him through this.

The beneficiary account has been set up through 5/3 Bank, For Benefit of Mark D O'Connell.  If you would like to go to the bank we can provide you with the info you need.

Thanks in advance and keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Ogeez,

Maren and Katie
