Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.
The out pouring of love and concern for Kaylee is felt, and our family is very appreciative. Updates will be posted here to help keep people informed of the latest, so we can balance all that is going on with our family right now.
On November 17, 2016, at about 9pm, Kaylee witnessed a head-on auto collision and pulled her car to the side of Highway 34 to render help. In the course of her helping with the collision, Kaylee was struck by another car and was seriously injured. The road was icy due to a recent snow storm, and Kaylee's car was also hit.
Kaylee was awake when the paramedics brought her to the hospital, saying she was very strong and brave young woman. The initial surgery went well and she has no known injuries to her internal organs. However, Kaylee did suffer 2 broken legs, a broken arm, fractures to her pelvis and has serious bruising and required many stitches. Due to the extent of other injuries, she remains on a ventilator and is heavily medicated in the Intensive Care Unit.
The McFarland's are feeling all of your prayers, and are very grateful to be covered in prayer 24/7. The Lord is with Kaylee on this journey and continues to bring blessings every day. Your prayers are coveted and bring strength and comfort to Kaylee and her family.
What can you do?
Due to Kaylee's condition, doctors have instructed that she needs as little stimulus as possible. Joe and Lisa are doing their best to keep Kaylee's room quiet. We respectfully request that visits are limited to ones that the family has asked for. We appreciate that folks want to visit, but please do not come to the hospital without an invitation from the family.
Again, we appreciate all of your prayers, love, support, and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
