Steamboat man still in hospital
June 10, 2005
A Steamboat Springs man who was critically injured in a June 2 car accident that killed his wife remains in the hospital.
Stan Schoen, 72, was taken to the Denver Health Medical Center in Denver after he suffered head injuries in the accident on Colorado Highway 131 south of Toponas.
Schoen’s wife, 74-year-old Bobbie Day, was killed in the accident.
Schoen’s condition has improved steadily, longtime friend Barbara Jones said, but Schoen still is in the surgical intensive care unit at the hospital.
“We just don’t know when he’ll be out,” she said.
Schoen is being treated for several facial fractures, a basal skull fracture, four broken ribs and pneumonia, she said.
Friends and family of Schoen have created a Web site for Schoen where people have been able to post photos, comments and updates on Schoen’s condition. The site is http://www.stanschoen.blogspot.com and is updated frequently with news of Schoen’s condition.
Family and friends ask that people who would like to honor Bobbie Day’s memory make donations to the Children’s Hospital, where she volunteered, in care of The Children’s Hospital Foundation Courage Classic, P.O. Box 5003, Denver, CO 80217.
