As some of you heard that my son was in a motorcycle accident May 14. It happened in Hurst TX around 3:30pm at HWY 10 and Norwood intersection. He was hit by a truck. He has been taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in critical condition. The full extent of his injuries are not known at this time but
HE WAS NOT WEARING A HELMET So there is head and face trauma.
He seems to be stable this morning 9:00.
I will post updates

Best wishes for you and your family.

Been there, done that. Y'all have got a long road ahead, but this too, shall pass.

I assume they'll keep him in a chemically induced coma until swelling goes down?

I will let my kids know. They never let us forget anyone when we pray before they go to bed. Please keep us updated, especially if you want us to pray for any specific issues.

I can't imagine what you and the family and friends are going through.
All of you are on my list.

On my prayer list. May God be with him and your family. I am also a big believer people bad shape respond well to the presence of family though we may not realize it. Be strong for him.

Anything we can do to help?

When I was in the hospital when I went down in Austin, there was a lot of kindness thrown my way be a lot of unusual suspects. The least I can do is help pay it forward.

Brain swelling has stopped, will need to subside before any evaluation of mental damage and repair of facial and skull bones, pretty well medicated, not quite a medicated coma. The more time that goes by the better.

He is stable enough this morning to have his pelvic repaired, so he just went in for a 2 hour surgery. Brain swelling has stopped but he will be in ICU for a while.

Glad to hear there is some progress. Sounds like things are generally pointed in the right direction. Still, as a parent I cannot even imagine the levels of stress and worry you and your family are the experiencing. Prayers sent your way.
