The family of Meadowlands Racetrack announcer Sam McKee has provided another update regarding the progress that the famed racecaller is making after having suffered a serious stroke earlier this month.
The progress report on McKee has come via the Go Fund Me page that has been set up to help deal with medical costs.
The entry states that McKee has reached another recovery milestone, as he was moved from the intensive care unit on Saturday (February 11) into a 'step-down' unit, meaning he is healing well and needs only intermediate care.
“Although he is still working on speech and mobility, we are encouraged that the doctors feel he's close to heading off to rehab,” the family has said. “Sam smiles when we read him your notes and comments, and we know he can feel the love and support from you all.”
As of Monday morning (February 13), the Go Fund Me page has raised more than $144,000 in donations to aid McKee in his recovery.
