Dear Friends, As you may have heard, Greg was critically injured on Christmas Day in a multivehicle auto accident, that resulted in him being pinned between 2 vehicles. When EMS arrived he was unconscious and losing a lot of blood from a severe leg injury. He was transported to Beaumont Royal Oak, where he stopped breathing and was placed on a ventilator. It was determined that he had sustained severe damage as well as a torn artery in the right leg, a shattered hip, and bruising/swelling in the brain. Over the next 8 hours Greg underwent 2 surgeries, one to amputate the right leg below the knee, and one to explore the same leg and his abdomen to find the source of ongoing bleeding. He also went into cardiac arrest twice in the ICU. A catheter was also inserted into the brain to help normalize the pressure, after it was determined that he had multiple microscopic brain hemorrhages. Updates starting late evening on 12/25 are posted below. Thank you SO much for your care and concern for Greg, Becki, and their family. Please continue to pray fervently for Greg, for Becki and the family, and for the medical team. Please leave your thoughts and well wishes below. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
