On August 26, YWN posted an urgent Tehillim alert (HERE) for a young Lakewood couple who were involved in a serious MVA outside of Los Angeles. The wife was B”H not injured, but the husband was flown by chopper to Modesto with serious injuries. The following is a letter written to YWN by the father of the Yungerman:
I am Yoseph Chanina’s father, and the following is the latest update: The surgeries on his neck and hand were B”H successful. He is B”H kain ayin hora walking under his own power, has complete control of his extremities, and his mind and personality emerged from this near catastrophe completely intact!
He was discharged from the hospital this past Thursday afternoon, and we all rested in a hotel in Modesto Thursday night before proceeding to a Chabad House of nearby Stockton, CA for Shabbos.
B”H we all returned from SFO to JFK on Sunday evening at around 10:00PM, and the young couple is convalescing in Yoseph Chanina’s parent’s home in Brooklyn until at least after Shabbos. He will still need rest, PT/OT and possible follow-up procedures on his left hand but is tehila l’rofeh cholei ahmo yisborach out of sakonas nefoshos!
The families of Yoseph Chanina and his wife thank the hundreds of people who held the choleh in their hearts and tefillos. We were Zoche to tremendous Chasdei HaShem.
We express our “not-repayable Hakoras Hatov” to the Rofeh Cholei Ahmo Yisborach and the surgeons, Dr. Benjamin Remington and Doctor Paul Caviale and nursing staff of Doctors Medical Center in Modesto, to Rabbi Heshy Ten and his staff of Bikur Cholim of California (Los Angeles), Rabbi and Rebitzen Avremel Brod of Chabad of Stockton, Dr. and Mrs. David Lyon and Dr. Nurith Yael Eisenmann of Modesto along with numerous friends and askanim on the East and West Coasts for their indispensable advice, guidance support and Mesiras Nefesh in this most trying of times.
We can never repay you, but Yehi Maskurt’chem Shlaimah Mea-ais HaShem.
