As many of you may have heard by now, Jody suffered severe burns as he made sure he and the kids got out of their house when it had become engulfed in flames on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018. After being stabilized at the local hospital, Jody was rushed to Regions Hospital's nationally acclaimed Burn Center. Jody is now receiving treatment at Regions, and it is anticipated that he will need to remain there for the next few weeks.
Jody sustained burns on both arms (from fingertips to elbows), and on both feet (toes to ankles). Additionally, there are secondary burns to his face and head. While there are many unknowns at this time, we do know that his recovery will be slow and much more a marathon than a sprint. We also know that his recovery will continue beyond his eventual discharge from Regions.
There have already been so many expressions of love, concern, support that it's beyond obvious that the Testabergs are a beloved group of people. We also are aware that many will want to follow Jody and his family on this journey, thus we've set up this page. Our intention is that members of the Testaberg Village will post updates here as they are possible/available.
Jody and Abbie are so grateful and humbled by the support of friends, family, and the community that has already surrounded them. The greater Testaberg family is as well.
