Hello all. First of all, thanks so much for your prayers for us. I truly believe that's what has gotten me through the last 24 hours.
I've stopped home real quick to grab a few hours sleep, a shower and a change of clothes before heading back to the hospital. I've been up now for almost 36 hours. I am exhausted.
The short story of what happened is this (I'll share details later)...
Tyler was involved in a terrible car accident yesterday afternoon. A pickup truck pulled out in front of Tyler's car and he t-boned the truck at the posted speed he was traveling at 55 miles per hour. Let me tell you....IT IS A MIRACLE Tyler is even alive!!!!!!!!!!!
This is where I'll have to share details later for the sake of time but Tyler managed to crawl out of the car and give a passerby our phone number to call me. I went to the accident scene and about passed out when I saw Tyler's car and heard his screams. The cops had to hold me back from running to Tyler as he lay screaming on the board next to his car. The front end was smashed like an accordian and the car is definitely totaled.
He has a badly broken femur, which took about 4 hours to repair in surgery. They inserted a rod and screws into his leg. Lots of cuts and bruises, possibly a broken nose. He is in so much pain right now. They kept him in ICU overnight to closely monitor Tyler because they suspected a head injury.
I've been doing a lot of crying and praying, as you can imagine.
Bobby got to the hospital safely this morning about 6:30 a.m. after driving through the night from NC. It was such a relief for him to finally get here. My in-laws were at the hospital with me.
OK, that's about all for now. I've GOT to go lay down right now; I'm gonna drop!
