Lyal was in a bad car accident on the 5th of April in Colorado. As a result of the accident he had to be airlifted to St. Anthony's Hospital in Lakewood Co where he underwent surgery and had to have his face reconstructed as well as repairing a spinal fluid leak. He has many appts with a plastic surgeon, Neuro surgeon, optometrist for his eyes as there is a possibility he will have to have another surgery on his left eye as they are concerned it might fall into his head. They explained it like an ice cream cone. As the ice cream melts it falls into the cone and that is what they are afraid might happen to his eye. He has a long road ahead of him and he has to stay out of the sun for a year per doctors request. As a result of the accident he's unable to work and the medical bills are starting to pile up. Insurance companies are still figuring stuff out. In case some of you might not know Lyal is a great dad and I'm proud to admit he's my son.
