I shared with you the devastating news of my friend’s accident and the tragic loss of her daughter. I thought I would share an update, so please indulge me for a moment.
Wes is still on a ventilator but they are working to bring him off of it slowly. He has not suffered any brain swelling and they are not sure what type of brain damage he will have going forward. He is not yet fully awake. He has a broken bone in his face as well as extensive cuts but they have been hesitant in putting him under for surgery due to his condition. He did have surgery to insert a feeding tube and he came through that like a champ. He does have a broken tibia that will not require surgery – since he is restrained in the bed right now a splint will suffice. They were worried about his eyesight and damage to his optic nerve. However, the nerve is attached and they are very optimistic that he has retained his sight.
I am sharing a link to the GoFundMe page that was set up for them. If you feel so inclined.
