Pocomoke mayor still hospitalized

(Dec. 22, 2017) Pocomoke City Councilwoman Esther Troast continues to provide updates on hospitalized Mayor Bruce Morrison, who remains at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware following a subdural hematoma on Nov. 29.

Troast, on Monday night, said she was “wishing I could tell you that our beloved mayor and my dear friend would be making it back to his town to spend Christmas. Although we don’t think that will happen this year, this girl can still make that her holiday wish.”

Troast said Morrison was moved to a step-down unit and given a feeding tube and is “making baby steps each day.”

“The doctors say this is not a race, it is a marathon journey,” she said. “The past two days he has studied his watch as if he has some where to be. My guess, he’s watching the clock till he can come home. He has widened his eyes in expression and has shared a few mischievous grins.

“His family and all of us ask that you continue to pray for healing. We still need that Christmas miracle,” Troast continued. “It is really hard for me to imagine Christmas in Pocomoke without him here to spread his enthusiasm for the holidays. He has an infectious spirit all year, but especially at this time of year. I ask myself daily, ’what would Bruce say or do?’ My thoughts are that he would say, ’I trust you to do whatever you think is right.’

“Please continue to keep him in your prayers, keep sending those well wishes with cards or messages,” she said. “It is heartwarming the many ways people have sent their well wishes. The staff at the hospital surely knows Pocomoke is the friendliest town on the Eastern Shore and I am certain Bruce can feel the love.”

Cards and notes can be sent to Christiana Hospital, Neuro Critical Care 2D room #2B06, 4755 Ogletown-Stanton Road, Newark, Delaware, 19713.
