As many of you know Justin and I just got married on November 19, 2016. This was the best day of our life. We expected the first year of marriage to be like any others learning to live with one another, learn and share financial responsibilities, and honestly to fight about all the little things that doesn't really matter. Unfortunately the worst day of our life came soon after. On February 14, 2017, Justin was in a terrible single car accident while on his way to work.
He has 4 fractured ribs, 2 fractured vertebraes, his right pelvic bone is fractured, a cracked cheek bone, and he has a 3 inch laceration on his head that required 11 staples. However, the main concern right now is his brain injury. He was diagnosed with a "shear" traumatic brain injury, which is the tearing of the axons in the brain as it was shifting in the skull.
He was in ICU for about 2 weeks and now he is at a rehab center. Everyone has told us this is not a sprint, but a marathon. Now I can see they were right. The doctors are optimistic that Justin will have a full recovery, but it will take time.
God works in mysterious ways. He is all over this and has already showed up and showed out. I was talking to Justin one day and even in his healing confused brain he said, "We all have faith" so I replied, "Yes we do, we all have faith and God will help you through this." Justin answered back, "He already is". Amen to that and praise the Lord for overcoming the head trauma and medicine to show He is with Justin through this "storm" (Those who may not know when the brain heals they call it storming or wax and wang. One minute he's okay and the next he's not).
Please keep praying. No one can have too many prayers. Thank you all for your love and support! We really appreciate it! ❤ Help spread the word!
