|Josear Carrasco, seriously injured during past weekends RECORD San Quintin racing event|
Friday, August 23:
"These last days have been a lot of rest and recovery. Josear has had to undergo multiple tests, scanners and x-rays to make sure everything is healing according to the plans and that there are (is) no internal bleeding / blood clots.
Tomorrow we will discover the success of Josear's skin graft surgery he had on Monday. Due to the severity and amount of burns, you may need additional surgery to reapply the graft. Josear's appetite is increasing, and he is becoming very good eating with a syringe. During the last days, the physiotherapy team has been helping him recover the movement of his legs and today we were able to make him sit next to the bed. This is HUGE considering that yesterday I had a lot of pain when trying to move my legs. Currently, Josear burns are what most concern doctors, as there are many and the healing process is long and painful. Once doctors can check the burns tomorrow, we will have a better schedule of when / if you will have another surgery and what the healing process will be from there. Josear still can't see the visitors, but things are getting better and hopefully he can receive visitors soon. In addition to his burns, the surgeries he received in several other parts of his body are working extremely well and on the road to healing. Thank you for your continued messages, donations and prayers.
We have been reading messages of support for Josear daily and he never stops smiling. Josear had an accident during the Ensenada San Quintín 250 race."

A message from Josear:
"Josear has been transported to a trauma hospital in San Diego. It is a miracle that I am here and we are very grateful, but last night we discovered that Josear has many more fractures / fractures than we previously thought, many of them in very crucial areas.
Jose will have skin graphics for burns, found multiple fractures in the lower part of your skull, upper part of the spine and fractures in the back. They also discovered that his hip is broken and will require surgery, as well as a fractured jaw that will require doctors to close it after the operation. He has undergone femur, shin and arm surgery and they are working to place his collarbone and shoulder in place. Josear will have to undergo many surgeries in the next few days and stay in the ICU for a while. Again, you have no idea how much all your kindness means to Josear and the Carrasco family and friends.
While he may not understand how the person who hit him and left him there could be so ruthless, for that evil person, there have been hundreds of incredible people who helped us in any way possible. The amount of love we have received from everyone is overwhelming and truly amazing. Unfortunately, Josear cannot see any visitors at this time other than the immediate family, but we will continue to update when I can see the visitors."
