My niece and her husband were in a snowmobile accident on Sunday while on vacation in New Hampshire. Her husband is hurt, but doing okay, but my niece is in critical condition in ICU. She has 10 broken ribs, fractured vertebrae and a collapsed lung. They have her medically sedated and trying to prevent pneumonia by removing the fluids. They were on vacation with their teenage son who saw the accident and freaked out being far away from home and seeing both his parents injured. He immediately called his grandmother (my sister) who had to drive 4 hours in snow to get there.
She is having surgery tomorrow morning to repair the vertebrae with plates and pins. She has a blood issue and this could be a very tricky situation to perform the surgery when so much blood is involved in this type of procedure, especially with all her broken bones.
Pray for guidance of the drs to successfully repair her broken body
