accident update

Thanks to those who sent prayers and positive thoughts the other night for Liss and her roommate. Here's a quick update and request for continued P&PT.

The night of the accident G was airlifted from one hospital to another in preparation for surgery. He had much internal bleeding, a broken pelvis, broken leg(s), broken thumb, but was so very fortunate to not have any head injuries and only a small scratch on his helmet. (They really do save lives!!!)

They monitored him overnight and the following day (yesterday) put a pin in his leg. He was scheduled for surgery today to try to rebuild his pelvis but he never made it to surgery due to being rushed in last night to stop the internal bleeding that seemingly was stopping the night before.

This boy is in some bad shape and can use all the P&PT he can get. And our dear, sweet Liss is a total wreck, so she can use lots of P&PT as well.

Thanks for any support you can offer.

Updated: Liss spent some time giving more of the details. You can read it here.

Thank you Lisa and everyone else. I really do appreciate the thoughts and the the prayers. The bleeding has been stopped so we are hoping they will be able to do surgery on his pelvis tomorrow morning. I'll get an update to Stacie or Lisa tomorrow.

Thank you all again.

Yikes, that's a really scary thing. Stay strong, good thoughts.

Ouch. I hope everything works out. I've been there and know what it's like (well, not that bad, but enough to know.) Glad he had his helmet on - it's probably what saved him, from the sound of it.

Keep us posted.

I have actually updated my blog with what I know I will try to keep it up to date with actuals so Lisa doesn't have to do it for me ;)


there is no news at the moment. I'm on pins and needles waiting to hear from his parents
