On April 13th  Connor and Kendall were riding their bikes when Connor was hit by a  car.  Both of them were wearing helmets, which we've been told  probably saved his life. Our wonderful neighbor, Rick Ferguson, came upon the scene immediately after, recognized Connor, and drove to our house and grabbed me. He was unresponsive but I was able to be with him , hold him, and talk to him until paramedics arrived.  I was aided by a slew of amazing neighbors, including some I've  never met, who grabbed blankets to keep him warm and  stable.  Due to his extensive trauma injuries and possible right side paralysis, he was airlifted by helicopter to Hershey Children's.  There wasn't room for me in the helicopter so Jeff and I drove up together for what seemed like the longest one hour of my life.  Fortunately, my mom lives 20 minutes from Hershey and immefistrly headed to the ER.  She pulled into the parking lot as Connors helicopter was landing!!! After 8 hours of waiting and meeting with various specialists, nurses, and surgeons, we were allowed to be with him in the PICU.  We were informed that he was intubated with an additional tube down his throat for drainage, had frontal llobe bleeding, deep lacerations requiring stitches and numerous facial fractures.
