My Story

This is Tucker Anderson's caring bridge website. We'll do our best to keep you up-to-date while Tucker is on his road to recovery. Thanks to all of those who have left us words of encouragement. It has been such a blessing to hear of all of the prayers going up for Tucker!

As many of you already know, Tucker was in a terrible car accident on the morning of September 7th. He lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a tree head on. Tucker sustained severe trauma to his head and was transported to Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital in Pensacola. He received emergency surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain. Surgery went well and thus far there is no additional bleeding. He has several fractured vertebrae, but has total movement in both arms and legs. He also suffered a broken orbital socket on the right side of his face.  Tucker's vital signs are solid, and he has begun responding to some basic commands (although not consistently).  Continuing to have clear CT scans will be critical to his recovery.  Hopefully Tucker will be waking up soon.  Then the true recovery begins!  We appreciate all of the prayers going up for Tucker.  He will require all the prayers he can get, but if anyone can beat this it's Tuck!
