As most of you know, Allen was involved in a terrible motorcycle accident on his way home from work on July 5. He was taken by ambulance to Sky Ridge  Medical Center where he is currently in the ICU. He is expected to be in the hospital for at least a month. His injuries were extensive and include the following: T7 burst fracture all columns; acute fracture of C6, T6, and T8; acute transverse fracturesT2-T7; left posterior rib fracture; collapsed lung ; along with many other injuries.  He had surgery on July 6  to try and stabilize his fractured spine with rods and screws. The surgeon said it is highly unlikely that he will ever walk again. He has no feeling below his mid chest area, however, he has moved his left foot.

We know how much you all care about the Rensel family.  Jennie is trying to keep everyone updated as much as she can, but it can get a little overwhelming! We would love to keep family and friends updated on this site and will try to post daily updates. We appreciate your prayers, support, and words of encouragement.
