Last Friday, she got the news that her dad had fallen and broken his foot, and arm, she immediately left Fort Worth to be with her parents in Hillsboro. She spent the weekend there in order to help with her dad and celebrate Mother's Day with her mom.
On Sunday, Mother's Day, as Julie was driving down I-35 to head back home, something flew through the windshield and hit her in the face, crushing the whole right side of her face, and head.
She was taken by careflight to the hospital in Waco. However, because of the significance of her injuries, Julie was then taken by careflight to a hospital in Temple, where they were better equipped to handle her injuries.
She suffered a traumatic brain injury, with bruising and swelling in her brain. Her left eye is completely swollen shut, and all of the bones surrounding her right eye were crushed. The ophthalmologist is hopeful that she will regain vision in her right eye. She is facing multiple surgeries to reconstruct the bones in her face, and then multiple plastic surgeries to make her look like our beautiful Jules again. She will also be going through months of rehab. She is currently being treated in a city hours away from her home.
The medical expenses are already adding up, and will continue to grow for months, with all of the specialists that are needed, the two careflight trips, and multiple surgeries. She will be missing work for an unknown length of time. Her husband is also currently missing work so that he can be by her side. Her car was totaled in the accident, so that will need to be replaced as well.
