On the evening of the New Year’s Eve, while I was in Tahoe, I received a voicemail from Julie Perry wishing me a Happy New Year.
When I called her back after my trip a couple days later, I discovered that shortly after she had left me the voicemail, Julie and her friend were involved in a hit-and-run accident, where they were thrown from a rickshaw after being hit by an apparent drunk driver.
Now, I’m not going to go into the details of the accident, because that’s not what this post is about…
When Donna Fox and I visited Julie Perry at the Ft. Lauderdale hospital a few weeks ago, she was sedated and wasn’t able to get out of bed (she told me she doesn’t remember half of what we even talked about while I was there haha).
Needless to say, she was in pretty bad shape because it had only been a few days since the accident.
But I just got off the phone with her, and I’m happy to report that my good friend Julie Perry is recovering quite nicely, and while she is still suffering from nerve damage and a broken clavicle, and requires the assistance of a cane in order to walk, Julie is nonetheless in very high spirits and looking forward to a full recovery!
Yes, it’s extremely good news because this means Julie will be well soon, but I am still bummed out because that means she will not be able to join us this weekend in Las Vegas for Ross Goldberg’s Masters Seminar, as we had originally planned.
For those of you who would like to leave Julie Perry a personal message for a speedy recovery, please feel free to leave a comment on this post, or contact her directly on her MySpace or Facebook profiles.
However, please don’t be offended if she doesn’t reply to you… She can’t type right now and plus, she must have hundreds of get well wishes by now that she will have no way to responding to without spending days on her computer :)
