This had been a ho-hum day till about 3 pm. Then we got the dreaded phone call that every parent/grandparent doesn't ever want to get. Our daughter-in-law called that our 22 yr old grandson was in a motorcycle accident and had been airlifted to a St. Louis Hospital and they would let us know more when they knew something. Since then, we have been getting updates, no broken bones-thank the Lord his neck was not broken nor his back-they are worried about head trauma as he wasn't wearing a helmen-when will kids learn they are not invincible????? He has a very bad burn that needs to be treated-the bike muffler landed on his shoulder and burnt it before they could get it off of him. He is married, has 2 little boys and a little girl due in Dec. He has a steady job, but no insurance so this is not going to help them out. They are planning to move him out of the ER and into ICU as soon as they know more from the head CTs. Please keep them in your prayers Spark friends.
