Peyton's Medical Bills

Peyton went with her brother Austin, dad Jon and family friends to the monster truck show at Colorado National Speedway, on Father's Day. Peyton sitting in front of her dad and about 2 children away from her brother. She wanted to get up and sit by Austin, so she did still in front of Jon. Suddenly Jon heard Austin yell "Peyton!" And something bang on the bleachers. Peyton fell through the gap of the bleachers behind her. The gap was between the floor and the seat behind her. She fell 16 feet to the concrete. She fractured her radius and ulna, near her wrist, broke her elbow, had about 5 other fractures in her right arm, fractured her right orbital socket, had blunt force trauma to her liver and a bruise on a bone in her neck. The elbow break needed surgery to repair and while she was in surgery the doctors tried to re align her radius and ulna, however they were only able to get it to a 30* angle. Since her major breaks were in a growth plate, as she grows she may need another surgery to straighten her arm out better. The doctor is concerned that her arm may curve as she grows.
