Update on Jeremy

Jeremy made it through the surgery this morning. The aorta was torn so bad that they had to put a tube in to fix it. The dr. thinks he'll be okay. The next step is to see an orthopedic doctor. His collar bone, left shoulder and left arm are broken pretty badly. He's got a long road ahead of him to get well again.

Right now it looks better than it was. No one is talking about the liver so it must be okay. He also broke some ribs, not sure how many though. His head was fine and the helmet doesn't even look dented. They showed it on the news report.

Thank you to all that had him in your thoughts and prayers!

Jodi--

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I am hoping that Jeremy will have a complete recovery.

Thanks, Miranda!

He's holding his own now. He has a long road ahead and more surgery we think, on his arm, shoulder and collarbone. At least the life threatening surgery was a success.

My brother was in a motorcycle accident nearly 20 years ago with similar injuries. I maybe understand a little what your family must be going through. Our thoughts are with him also.
