Update on Pickup Man Rex Bugbee, Being Treated at Trauma Unit in Lubbock, TX
Pickup man Rex Bugbee, who suffered severe injuries when colliding with another pickup man during the Bronc Match Thursday night at the Guymon Pioneer Days remains at the trauma unit in Lubbock, Texas, where he was rushed for treatment. Doctors initially found broken ribs, face bones and a shoulder blade, collapsed lungs, and several brain bleeds, which they are continuing to monitor. Rex has been sedated for his own comfort and safety while awaiting additional tests, scheduled for Monday morning.
On Sunday morning, Rex’s son Josh posted an update that said:
No real changes over night. They still have him on a little sedation medication to keep him from coming awake and hurting himself. Tomorrow morning they will do another CT scan and chest X-rays to see how things are looking. Vitals are all still really good!
Keep up the prayers and positive vibes for him! We’ve received messages from people all over the nation wanting to help in any way possible. We don’t really know what we are up against right now and time will tell! We love you all!
