I spoke with Larry Cruz‘s wife, Tracy, last week about his recovery from the accident at this year’s Reno Air Races. He finally made it home on November, two months after the accident. While hospital-bound, friends and family outfit their home to make it easier, and safer, for Larry to move around. A new prosthetic arm is on order and he’s still taking anti-biotics for his leg. Doctors are still unsure if the plate in his leg is the cause of the infection. Larry and Tracy were able to attend the Cascade Warbirds Christmas Party. See the YouTube video from the party here. Overall, Tracy says Larry is doing well, and his spirits remain good, but is challenged with not be able to move around easily. That’s been a huge transition for him.
