More information will come in soon, but in the meantime, please stop now and say a prayer, perhaps the Memorare, for Thomas and his family.
See Ed Peters comment below, which I reproduce here:
This is deeply appreciated, Pater. Thom fractured his neck in a swimming accident last evening. I’ll try to keep folks informed on my facebook page. Oremus pro invicem. EdPAt his Facebook page he said:
Thomas Peters was seriously hurt in a swimming accident Tuesday evening. He fractured his 5th cervical vert. and is at Univ. Maryland Medical Center (Baltimore).Natalie Zmuda Peters is there, and the moms Angela & Becky Z flew out a couple hours ago. He moved an arm on command and is undergoing more tests. He has responded pretty well to the immediate steps taken for him so far. I will stay in touch here. Your prayers and well wishes are deeply appreciated.
