Patrick had a bad crash on his mountain bike. Luckily our brother in law (who is a doctor) and the EMTs were right behind him on the trail. He was brought down the mountain via ATV. At the emergency station he was alert and talkative and refused and ambulance. I (Camille) arrived and requested an ambulance to park city medical. There he received a cat scan where it was determined he had broken several ribs, his collar bone, a partially collapsed lung, and fractured T6 and T12 vertebrae. He was then life flighted to IMC where they discovered another fracture in his neck at C7. He will be fitted for a body cast and hopefully not have to have surgery. There is no brain damage or serious nerve damage. Thank God for his helmet! We are so grateful he is alive and will have a full recovery!!!
Camille told me about 20 minutes ago that Patrick will be getting surgery to alleviate bleeding in his lungs and be having titanium plates put in to fix his ribs before the body cast in put on.
