Todd Boettger now breathing on his own

Posted by Geeky Swedes on April 30th, 2009

Todd Boettger, the man who was attacked in Greenwood earlier this month, is recovering slowly. Forrest Boettger, Todd’s brother, says that Todd is still in the ICU at Harborview but was taken off the breathing apparatus on Tuesday. The doctors have stopped giving Todd the paralysis medication, and he’s able to “open his eyes to the stimuli of voices but does not follow with his gaze. Todd is able to move all of his limbs but can not at this time follow simple commands such as move your right fingers,” Forrest writes. Todd will undergo facial reconstructive surgery today, and doctors will keep him in the ICU possibly through the weekend before he is moved. As every brain injury is different, they don’t know what the recovery process will be. “Through this ordeal I would like to take the opportunity thank everyone for their concern and love that you all hold for my brother Todd. Again I would also like to remind the community that a fund has been set up for Todd at US Bank, the Todd Boettger Relief Fund (acct # 153461776434),” says Forrest.

Forrest will be coming to Seattle May 6th – May 11th. He plans to get a group of volunteers and go business to business, door to door to collect $50,000 for Todd and Lillian. Anyone who is interested in helping can contact Forrest at:

    Did you forget a coffee shop? Well seeing as you only listed 6 (2 being chains), I’d say YES! How about Fiore, Java Bean, Fresh Flours, Java John. This is Seattle and the only coffee shops open on Christmas are Tully’s and Starbucks?!? I tell you Seattle is more religious than the deep south!
