Blasdell hurt in bull riding mishap

Blasdell is currently in ICU at St. Charles Medical Center
Senior Logan Blasdell, a member of the Crook County High School rodeo team, was seriously injured in a bull riding accident at the team's practice facility on Sunday.
   Blasdell was bucked off and then stepped on by the bull. Blasdell, 18, the son of Tom and Shannon Blasdell, was taken to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend where he is being treated for multiple broken ribs and a collapsed lung.
   As of last report he was still in the Intensive Care Unit.
   "He is getting better in little steps," said his father Tom Blasdell. "We want to thank everyone for all their thoughts and prayers."
   Updates on Blasdell's condition can be seen at www.caringbridge.org/visit/loganblasdell. Family friends are in the process of setting up a bank account to help defray the family's expenses. Information about how you can help will be available at the Caring Bridge Web site later today, and in the Central Oregonian on Friday.
