Aberdeen News: Meyer tells of lessons learned

Thursday, October 16, 2008

Spiritually, Don Meyer is stronger than he has ever been.

Physically, the Northern State men's basketball coach still has some battles ahead. However, the 63-year-old beloved Aberdeen man has made full-court, game-winning strides since his Sept. 5 auto accident. For several days after that accident, Meyer was in a fight for his life.

“I have made great progress,” Meyer said from his room at Avera McKennan Hospital and University Health Center in Sioux Falls. “The biggest thing everyone needs to know is how much Carmen and I appreciate all the cards, the notes, the phone calls and especially all the prayers. We have so many people helping us out on this deal. God, of course, is going to do it all, but he listens to people praying. I can feel it sometimes. I can feel the prayers of people lift me up. I can't tell you how much that means to me when I'm struggling.”
