After dropping Braxton off at daycare on Monday morning, September 17, P.J.was in a car accident at the intersection of Hwy. 12 & 250th St. She was taken by ambulance to Regions Hospital. Preliminary findings were a shattered right heel, 2 broken wrists, and 2 fractures in her back, T12, and L2 respectively.
She had a surgery to repair some of the damage in her heel, and another surgery will take place after the swelling subsides.
Tuesday, September 18: After reading the MRI and CT scan, it was determined a back brace will be the plan. Surgery is still possible, but the least invasive treatment will be tried first.
We are still waiting to hear about the plan for the wrists. It doesn't seem accurate to call those injuries "least severe" since she is unable to feed herself or hold her sweet baby.
Thank you for holding her in your thoughts and prayers.
