Carter McOmber Memorial Fund
He is being very closely monitored by the great staff at Mayo. MRI looked good, however brain injuries may not show up for days. He has trauma to the lungs, liver and bowel. He also has a jaw fracture and ligament trauma causing a couple of discs in the spine to separate.
The biggest concern at this time is his head. They think he suffered a sever brain injury. Still waiting on results from the CT scan. The EEG showed slowed brain activity, but they are not sure of the extent. He has a fever and is breathing hard so the vent was increased. He is on pain meds so he isn't opening his eyes, he is sedated.

My heart is heavy tonight as I hear the news about your little boy! It rings so close to home as my 2 year old suffered a fall this week but thankfully walked away with only a concussion. I pray that God will comfort you during this very difficult time! I will circle Carter and your family in my prayers. Nothing is impossible with Christ! Lean on him during this difficult time.
Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Thank you so much for doing this Beth!! You're such a good friend!
