Former Girl Star Susan Green In Critical Condition

The CAC received word from Al Mandell today that former girl wrestling star, Susan Green, is in critical condition in the hospital with a grim prognosis. Details are limited; however, according to Al, Susan had surgery and contracted an infection. We will post information as it becomes available.

Please keep her and her family in your thoughts.

For more information on the life and career of Susan Green, see SLAM's article here.

I got another call from Al and, as he explained to me, Susan went into the hospital in mid-February for surgery. After the surgery, she developed a staph infection and was in the hospital for an extended period. It appeared that the infection cleared up and she was released from the hospital and sent home, but then went back to the hospital. After being in the hospital for several days, somebody noticed a sore on her back and, as it was explained to me, the staph infection had gone into her spine or spinal column.

On the bright side, Al did say that she has stabilized since being in ICU. Hopefully this means that the prognosis has improved as well.
