New Prague teen making 'remarkable' recovery from crash injuries

By Chuck Kajer

A little more than two months ago Ryan Mamer was looking forward to his senior year in high school. But on the evening of August 4, things changed.

Mamer was a passenger in a car that was struck broadside. Both his legs were broken, and there were other injuries, including a head injury.

At the time, doctors were cautious, not wanting to give his family, parents Gary and Kelly and sister Ashley, any false hopes, but also not wanting them to fear the worst. He was able to talk with his parents and emergency medical workers, but then, several hours after arriving at North Memorial Medical Center, he went into a coma.

Today, Ryan is still looking forward to resuming his senior year. His recovery has been progressing much better than doctors had hoped, and he hopes to be back in school fulltime by the beginning of the next trimester, in late November.

In the days following the crash, Kelly said the doctors weren't telling them much about how things would progress.

They didn't know how long he would be in coma. They kept telling us they'd take it day by day
