On May 19, 2014, Harrison Braddy was walking home from his high school in Norman, OK, when he was hit by a train. He was wearing earbuds and did not hear the train approaching. He survived, but is now hospitalized at OU Medical Center. His family is facing numerous expenses, from costs of a hotel near the hospital to accumulating medical expenses. If you would like to lend a helping hand to the Braddy family, please consider donating. Even small amounts will help. Thank you for caring for this family.

Have not posted a public update on Harrison in a while, so here goes!

We have finally been released from all hospitals as of July 3rd and have settled in at home. How do we know? Teen attitudes. Brothers stomping off to another room. Parents wanting to pinch heads off. Family movie sessions. Late night Top Chef marathons. Video game noises all around. Resistance to chores. Talks. Trips to the grocery store. Sunburns. Hanging with friends. And the list goes on!

Got a pretty standard routine going. Got meds, wound care, bathroom, and sleeping areas organized. Harrison is stiff and sore, but pain seems to be minimal. The left leg is not strong. He can only make small movements on his own. We are helping with all wheelchair transfers. Next week we finalize outpatient PT with insurance. Program will be comprehensive, include water therapy, and will be focused on strengthening those muscles in preparation for walking. Ortho doc says Harrison can begin weight bearing the week of August 17th. All xrays looked amazing and surgical healing is on track! Looks like PT will be 3 times per week for about 6 weeks at $50 copay per session. WOW! You're killing us insurance! Long term we will follow up regularly with PCP to monitor kidney function and orthopedics to monitor activity/restrictions.

Thanks again to everyone who reached out during this time. We appreciate you. We love you. We are humbled by the awesomeness of humanity!

And last, but not least and for those close to us... visits are welcome!

I'm a little late on the updates! Harrison is off the ventilator, yay! He is super sore and stiff from being in bed so long, not to mention a couple of surgeries. Things are progressing. He is having a swallow test now to make sure things go where they should when he eats and drinks. His CK levels (muscle injury) are still going down, that's good; however, his Creatinine levels (kidney injury/trauma) are rising a little, that's not good. Watching those closely and waiting for today's report. On the up side he may get to move to a regular room today!

Last night Harrison was finally able to rest. Docs added two meds to his cocktail, seroquel and versed. They did the trick! He looked so calm, not agitated. Thank goodness! Another bit of news... his kidney levels went from 16,400 at noon to 12,000 in the evening. Yay! Hoping for more good news today. Maybe titrating off the ventilator?? We'll see...

Here we are... post pelvis surgery by 3 days and still on the ventilator. Ugh. Big Harrison has had some trouble adjusting to the sedation meds. He's been quite agitated. I can imagine him thinking... what the crap is this gagging feeling in my throat?! We hate to see him that way. Just want to steal his pain and frustration away! Docs say he probably won't remember any of it though. Today they added another medication to ease the anxiety and over the past 24 hours have upped his sedation and pain meds. All of this in an attempt to keep him calm and allow his body to recover. Stay strong big boy! Mom, Dad, Connor, and Mason love you. ♡
