Big Day

Friday, January 17, 2014

This is a big day for us, my son was critically injured on Dec 9th when he was at work an excavator ran over him crushing him from the pelvis down. He lost his right calve and foot and his left leg the femur bone was crushed among a lot of other injuries. His pelvis and left leg was held together by hardware. He is now in surgery to repair this leg, the Ortho team has fixed his femur and his pelvis was fixed by the hardware holding it in place for the last 6 weeks, the Orthon team is now done with their part and all of the hardware is now removed. Now it is up to the plastic surgeons to take skin graphs from his back to cover this leg but we are so grateful to be this far, Nick was out of sedation and back to the real Nick this week so I have been staying with him as he was in a floor which made this possible. He will now go back to ICU to recover and be placed in sedation due to the pain level he will be having but we should be back to the floor we were on after this weekend, Thank you to all of you for the support and prayers, we are just one step closer to bringing him home emoticon

    I am just catching up after being away from the "evening eating" team-for shoulder surgery. I am so sorry this happened to your son. Sending prayers and good wishes for his recovery and your peace of mind. I have several other friends who had sons hurt in accidents . Somehow you go on. chris

    Hurray! Such a nightmare with nothing you can do. Things all change on a dime. Thank goodness there is so much being done and you can be there for him. I think that is why as I get older I don't make as many plans and have become less of a perfectionist. I never would have predicted our lives as they are now. Our priorities change, goals, gratitudes. Hope you are looking after yourself. You can do this, one day at a time. It's a wonderful feeling when you "recognize" your loved ones again. Thinking of you all. Justyna

    Great spirit and glad he is doing well and hope all goes well today. A long road ahead but sounds like he has had great medical care and with all the prayers love and determination he will do great! HUGS and let him know he has a entire following here thinking of him.
