was in a severe, and serious car wreck on his way to help a childhood friend. 

If any one knows this Teddy bear;
You know hes quiet! 
But you also know how sweet, and willing he is to help his friends at any cost. 
He was on a road trip to move his Friend Chros to Portland. 

Mike had run something over in the middle of the highway that deflated his tire. This sent the car out of control and down a ravine, into a tree near Medford.
He was lucky enough to have the ability to call 911.k

Sooo here is what I know...

This is what his nurse told his mama:

He has an 18 inch gash to his head, almost every rib broken, punctured lung, multiple fractures to left arm.

His right leg is major concern and why he is in surgery right now. His femur is shattered, the part that connects to hip completely broken off and hip is shattered. Lower part of his leg was shattered, bones sticking out of it in multiple places. 

Last night at 3 am [10.5.18] 
I got the message that Mike had gone through a 9 hr surgery. 
It went well, and he was able to stand for about 15 minutes. 

His rehabilitation time is going to be lengthy! Hes gonna need financial help. 
And hes gonna need support. 

I feel like his papa was looking out for him, and that he is extremely blessed to be alive. 
Our job now is just to help him anyway we can.

With a heavy heart,
Thanks, 
-P
