Monday afternoon, Brian was on the ceiling in the garage working on a project. Last thing he remembers is stepping on a step ladder to double check a measurement when it ended up tipping. He fell through an opening and landed on the garage floor. Thankfully Konnor was with him and rushed to his side. Konnor yelled for Colby who came running in the garage and called 911 at 1:18pm. He was rushed to St. Cloud hospital where they did a scan and found he had broken some ribs, his sternum, T7 and T8 in his back and also had a tear in his lungs. They finally got him into surgery around 7:45pm. They found a little damage also on his T6 so ended up fusing vertabraes T5, T6, T9 and T10 to hold T7 and T8 in place. They used 8 screws and 2 rods. We finally got a call at 10:15 that they had finished surgery so Colby and I drove to the hospital to see him. With all the Covid restrictions, they do not allow family to wait at the hospital. Finally a little after midnight they came to the waiting room and brought us to the recovery room. We only were allowed to stay for a little while and had to leave when they were ready to move him up to the 6th floor. Since then I have only been allowed to see him for 2 hours Tuesday and a few hours last night after they had transferred him to the rehab floor. Since his fall he has had no feeling below his midsection. The surgeon said it is very unlikely he will walk again, but he has seen people regain feeling after 6 months or even longer so we need to be realistic, but also know there is always a possibility things could change. One of the hardest things for me right now is Brian repeatedly asking me not to give up on him since he says I didn't sign up for this. I keep telling him I don't agree because when we got married I promised to love him forever and I meant it! I will NEVER give up on him. He is the strongest person I know, best husband ever and still my dream come true! Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.🙏❤
