NORMAN ARENAS INJURED IN CAR ACCIDENT

As many may have already heard, a car hit Norman Arenas (NEW END ORIGINAL / TEXAS IS THE REASON) on the morning of Saturday, November 1. Below is updated information regarding Norman’s state of health written by friend Rob Fish.

At present Norman is doing well neurologically. His brain is no longer bleeding and there doesn’t appear to be any swelling. This is the most critical and they will continue to monitor this over the coming days. This is a very good sign.

His pelvis was fractured. The positive aspect is that it is a bone that heals relatively easily and once healed there shouldn’t be any major lingering effect. However, it is a very painful process. It will be somewhere between 4-12 weeks before he will be able to walk and it will be a painful and long process.

Norman is in a lot of pain and is being medicated which has made him very groggy as well as making it extremely difficult to talk. I can talk to him but he can’t communicate much back. I have told him of all of the calls and letters that I have received over the last two days wishing him a speedy recovery.

Over the coming days they will be able to determine a recovery plan and it is evident that all of Norman’s friends will do everything we can to help him through this period.

There has been an incredible outpouring of support from all over the country. Norman is loved and respected by many. I believe it is ironic how tragedy brings so many together. Ironic because Norman is a person that many love and appreciate and one of the joys of being his friend is that he likes to bring people together. Over the last two days I have seen and heard from many people that I have lost touch with over the years. In some ways I think that this was Norman’s way of bringing us all together.

If you wish to send Norman a card or letter, please feel free to send your well wishes to the following address:
