My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

Dani and Jesse were in a head on collision on Thursday night. They were in Alexandria when they hit some black ice and slid into on coming traffic. They were hit by a pickup on the right, front side of their car. Dani has a broken left ankle, shattered right foot, both bones in right arm are broken, two broken vertebra in her back. She has swelling in her brain, also a fracture in her neck, fracture on the right side of her pelvic disk. The swelling has gone down alot and the fractures will heal on their own. Jesse has a broken right leg which reguired surgery right away when he got to the Alexandria hospital.
