(Meeteetse, Wyo.) - Many Reboot readers have asked about the condition of Leo Horsen of Meeteetse, the boy who was hit in the head with a shot put on May 2. Leo's mom, Christine shared with Reboot on Tuesday morning that "Leo continues to be heavily sedated and on the ventilator." According to Leo's doctors, peak swelling occurs between 3-7 days. "We are on day 7," Christine said. "Hopefully, we will begin to see some improvement. If not, his doctors have some more tricks in their bag." Christine continued, "Thank you for your continued prayers and support. He still needs them. We continue to be so thankful for all the love, prayers and support from not only our basin community, but around the state, as well as surrounding states." Last weekend Thermopolis High School Students put up this sign at their track meet
to assist with costs related to Leo's accident.
There are several ways to support the Horsen Family.
- A fund is open at *Bank of the West* under 'Horsen Family.'
- All proceeds from the *Silent Auction* at the previously scheduled
Longhorn 6 Man Golf Tournament in Cody on July 16, 2016 will be donated to
