The Number Hospitalized For the Bombing Continues to Drop

Good news is being reported by hospitals treating patients who sustained injuries during the bombing at the Boston Marathon. The Boston hospitals are reporting that the number of people remaining in the hospitals for more treatment is continuing to go down each day, within just two weeks of the incident. 

The tragic attack killed three and injured more than 260. A total of 26 hospitals held and treated those who were injured during this horrific event. Massachusetts General Hospital reports that only six bombing victims are left being treated, one is in serious condition while the others' condition is fairly stable. Right after the attack the hospital had 31 patients being treated in their facility.

Brigham and Women's Hospital began with 36 patients after the explosion and now nine victims remain. The hospital reports that seven of the nine are in good condition. 

Another hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, said that they started with more than 20 victims but by Sunday morning, six patients with injuries were still being hospitalized.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who are still hospitalized and to the families of the three who lost their lives during the terrifying explosion. We remain hopeful that soon the others will be in good enough condition to return to their homes and families and we applaud the staff at the hospitals in Boston who are doing such a phenomenal job getting the patients well and back home!
