Andrew Greeley now in fair condition after recovery from fall

.- Father Andrew Greeley, the Chicago columnist and bestselling novelist who recently suffered a severe head injury, is now recovering at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.

On November 24, Advocate Lutheran Hospital in Park Ridge reported that the priest’s condition had been upgraded to fair after several weeks in critical condition.

According to a posting on Father Greeley’s blog, the Archbishop of Chicago Cardinal Francis George visited Greeley on Wednesday and prayed at his bedside.

The priest’s family has been in contact with the young California couple who helped when they saw Father Greeley fall and injure his head while using the door of a taxi.

“The man is training to be an EMT,” the blog reported. “The woman called 911 immediately as he used her scarf to stop the bleeding. They both kept him warm and talked to him.”

“The family have thanked them and referred to them as his guardian angels. We all hope their story will inspire others to act as Good Samaritans.”
