Today's good thing: Brittany is still hanging in there. This is an update from this morning:
Update on Brittany. I’m not sure of the correct medical terms but, She has numerous fractures and broken bones. As far as internal, they are using something to inflate her lung, and there’s something wrong with her kidney as well as fractured ribs. We’re not sure of the damage to her right eye, but they had to stitch her face from the right of her right eyelid across to the left of her forehead. 2 bones broke through the skin, one being in her arm and the other her leg. She had surgery yesterday to get an external fixator to hold her pelvis and legs in place. The scary thing about her pelvis injury is that there’s a 50/50% chance.... but she made it passed the first few hours now we are just praying for no infection. We still aren’t allowing visitors at this time because we don’t want to put her under any stress or increase the risk of infection. She’s in a lot of pain so they have her on a pretty high dosage. Unfortunately they can’t keep her sedated because her blood pressure keeps dropping. She did well throughout the night so she is scheduled for another surgery around 10 am today. The doctors are surprised at how well she’s doing with all the damage that has been done. She’s a fighter and has a very long road to recovery. We ask that you keep praying for her as well as Dustins family and friends and the other lives lost during this tragedy. Thank you all for checking in on her. We are all still really overwhelmed so we’re sorry to not be able to respond to everyone. I will continue to update y’all through this process and I just ask that you please pray and respect all the parties involved.
This is the latest update from Stephanie: First surgery on her left arm went well, they said she might not gain full use of her arm again.. the bone was unrepairable so they put plates in I think.. she was able to move her fingers after though.
Please keep praying! It's definitely helping. Thank you all so much.
We had a pretty laid back day here, we just did laundry, and I did a little gardening. It wasn't horribly hot, there was a breeze and a little rain.
