Gia suffered a broken jaw (which will be wired shut for 3-4 weeks), torn ligaments in her neck leading to her spine (she will wear a neck brace for 4-6 weeks), fractured clavicle and fractured shoulder. She was released from ICU/Critical Care after 13 days in the hospital. She is home recovering well and hoping to be back in school in a few weeks after her jaw and neck have healed.
Jorge suffered a more serious head injury and has been in ICU/Critical Care unit since the accident. He will be transferred to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA to continue on his path to recovery. His parents will travel initially with him then will rotate so one parent will stay with Jorge and the other parent will remain home with Gia and her older brother. They are fortunate to have family arrive in town to help at home.
This will be a long road to recovery and we do not know what to the road will entail. Your continued support and prayers have been a blessing to this family. They feel so honored to live in such a close community.
Due to the distance of the rehab facility if you would like to donate airline miles to help the family see each other more often, please contact me.
Thank you for all your help!!!
