Last Friday, Spike Todd of Mammoth Lakes was flown via Sierra Life Flight from Bishop Airport to Renown Medical Center in Reno. Severe winds made the flight out of Mammoth impossible. Todd suffered from pneumonia and complications. He remains hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit.
Spike owns and operates Mammoth Liquor and with his natural talent for visual art handles videography for Sierra Wave’s presentations of high school football. His many friends and customers have expressed deep concern since word of his illness circulated.
Spike’s brother, Bob Todd of Sierra Wave, has been at his bed side since last week along with Spike’s girlfriend Debbie and many family members and friends. Spike has remained in critical condition.
The website, www.caringbridge.org/visit/spiketodd offers daily updates on Spike’s condition and provides a way to send messages to Spike and his family. The site has been inundated with expressions of love and recovery.
