The University of St. Thomas learned today, July 12, from the DeMello family that Ricky DeMello is in critical but stable condition. He will be in surgery today – his third surgery in 36 hours. The family requests your prayers.

DeMello, a St. Thomas School of Law student, was injured in a fall Monday, July 2, in Rome, where he was participating in a study-abroad program.

Here are several websites created by Ricky’s friends for status updates:
