  1. That was my son, Ryan. He’s doing well, with the exception of short-term memory loss, and slightly-limited physical abilities. All praise goes to God, and our thanks go out to the medics who were first on scene, the law enforcement officers, the trauma team at UC Davis Medical Center, and the doctors and nurses at Kaiser South and Kaiser Vallejo.
