(Jan. 11, 2018) Pocomoke Mayor Bruce Morrison was moved to a rehabilitation facility last week and friends of the family said signs for his recovery are encouraging.
Morrison was rushed to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury on Nov. 29 with an apparent subdural hematoma, and then transferred to Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware.
On Jan. 2, he was taken to Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital in Pennsylvania.
According to reports, Morrison was visited by family and shown pictures of the recent snow storm in Pocomoke City. He was also shown cards sent by well-wishers.
With the help of a physical therapist, Morrison late last week could stand for the first time since his injury, sources said.
Pocomoke Councilwoman Esther Troast, who is filling in as interim mayor, said signs are encouraging.
“Definitely let everyone know he is making progress. That’s our Bruce! He’s a Warrior!” she said.
The family continues to ask for prayers in what is being described as “a long journey ahead.” Social media posts are using the hashtags #TEAMBRUCE and #MiracleForOurMayor to reference Morrison.
Additionally, Hardwire LLC in Pocomoke started a GoFundMe page to help pay for medical expenses. Morrison has worked for the company for more than 10 years.
As of Monday, the campaign has raised more than $36,000, including $20,000 in donations by Hardwire.

Cards for Morrison may be sent to Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital, Room M220, Main Line Health, 414 Paoli Pike, Malvern, PA 19355.
