Nelson County, Virginia
Update from Monday evening via David Johnson 6.1.20
“Just updating that Danny Johnson is out of surgery for today and back in ICU. They stabilized the arm for now and will follow up with more permanent repair later. The process took longer than expected today so they have decided to move his next surgery to Thursday to begin work on the leg in order to give him some recovery time. These first few procedures will be critical so continue to pray for a complete restoration of his arm and leg. The hospital is considering letting Cam Johnson come back for a visit with his dad on Thursday which is outside their current procedures so pray that will happen.
I will update FB as things change or new information comes to us so know that we are trying to keep everyone informed here on FB. Please know that text or messages to individual family members may not get a response as it is difficult to keep up with sometimes. We appreciate the words of encouragement and prayers in those private messages but the updates will be coming on FB as often as we can to reach everyone.”
Hearts are heavy and prayers are in full force this weekend as people all across Nelson and Central Virginia are hoping for the best. Lovingston Volunteer Fire & Rescue Chief Danny Johnson was involved in a very serious motorcycle accident on Saturday afternoon.
I’m grateful that so many people care about him. Danny is a good man and still needs all the good vibes and prayers we can get,” Assistant Chief Derek Kidd told us Sunday morning.
Chief Johnson was taken into surgery Saturday night and was out just after midnight Sunday morning. He’s been admitted to ICU and updates from the LVFD Facebook page indicate he’s got a long road to recovery.
We are praying and pulling for you Danny!
