Well, Hello again everyone. Summer’s officially over and I didn’t get really enjoy any of it. For those of you that don’t know, my oldest son, Craig and his son Craig Stephen were in a horrible semi accident on Father’s day. Craig Stephen was so lucky! All he needed was a few stitches and he’s doing wonderfully. Craig on the other hand sustained some very serious injuries. First of all his foot got pinned under something (they think the brake pedal) and he ended up breaking that foot to smash. He also tore all the skin off the top of his foot. With the
help of medical science they got everything put back together again…then we had to wait to see what his skin did. IT HEALED!!!!!!! Well I should say, it is healing still. Regardles, he shouldn’t have to have any other surgeries for his foot. YIPPEEEE!!!!!!
His other injury was a bit more serious. He broke his neck, C5, 6, and 7. He’s been paralyized from the bit above his wait to his feet since June 17th, 2007. Now there is still lots and lots of hope that this paralyisis will go away. He’s gaining more feeling everyday, he’s also getting stronger, physically, every day. He is going for a second MRI this coming Thurs to check and see what is going on with his swelling of the spinal cord. Mostly so it can be compared to the original MRI.
As you can imagine like at our house is much different now than it has been in a very long time. Craig is living here, for now he still needs a lot of therapy, both physical and occupational. He’s also going to be recieving vocational therapy. He also needs his friends and family close to him, whether he admits that or not!
Last night we got some more shocking news. Audrey’s ex husband, Jason was in a serious car accident early Sun morning. Supposedly they were not found for 5 or 6 hours after the accident. He sustained a broken neck also. They were suppose to do surgery on his sometime today to hopefully get movement in his arms back. I’m saying so many prayers for Jasons and his entire family right now. This is a very LONG, very PAINFUL, very everything road they are beginning to travel I just want all of them, Jason specially, to know we are all pulling for him. Hopefully I will get a chance to see him this week. He needs as many people arnound him as he can gather.
Bradley…ah what can I say about Bradley? W fight all the time, and I DO mean ALL THE TIME. But….I couldn’t do any of this without him. He’s been a Godsend to me. He’s working and gone usually Tue thru Sat so those are "my day" and he takes the weekends and basically gives me a HUGE break We agree on NOTHING, but we both know we can’t do this alone.
Audrey is still Audrey. She and Calvin have been house hunting with a few nibbles, but now they have to move before they were ready and they are stuck renting again. The did get a really cute house, downtown Jasper. I’ve not seen the inside of the house, but the outside looks totally redone and fresh.
That’s about all for now. See ya next time!!
