As most of you know, Cinnamon and Alex's son, Kyle Ramer, was in a horrific accident on Wednesday night when he was hit on his dirt bike by an SUV going 60 mph. He has suffered extensive injuries but he is alive and now in the healing process. You can read the actual story of what happened below, straight from Cinnamon, but for now we have started a campaign for those of you that have asked how you can help the Ramer family. We want Cinnamon and Alex to focus the next few months on being there for their son, not about money lost from missing work. We want to help with the medical bills that are accumulating due to multiple surgeries, ICU expenses, physical therapy, potentially very long hospital stay while Kyle is healing, and several months of recovery. Any amount you would like to give is so appreciated, and of course, no gift is too small for Kyle!
Here is the latest update from Cinnamon as of yesterday, October 5th:
Hi everyone. First off, Kyle is ok and recovering.
I just wanted to let everyone know that we are reading everyone’s posts and messages and am so grateful for each and every one of you. I have been absolutely exhausted and haven’t had the strength to do a post about what has happened. But I know so many people are concerned, and sending love and prayers...thank you
Wednesday evening 10/3, right around dusk Kyle was riding his dirt bike like he has hundreds of times before, and I guess made the decision to go across the highway (hwy 458), we don’t know the full details of how the accident happened, but he was struck presumably crossing the highway, by an SUV going most likely 55mph or greater. He flew up, hit the windshield and then was possibly thrown or tumbled down the highway until he came to a stop facedown on the road. He was wearing a helmet, but at some point it flew off. The police found it about 20 yds away from him, cracked and with the chin strap still buckled. I did not hear the accident, but intuitively looked out the window and saw a car stopped in the highway and knew something was wrong. I ran outside across the field and saw him from a distance laying lifeless in the road. As I was running, I was screaming to God to not let him be dead. When I got to him he was unconscious, but his eyes were slightly open. As I called his name he started moaning so I knew he was still alive. He was bleeding from his back area into the road, had two giant areas of swelling above his right eye, and the back of his head. His leg was twisted slightly awkwardly. As he started coming to he began crying out in pain. As I waited for help to arrive all I could do was beg God, angels, loved ones to be with him and heal him... save him. I was absolutely hysterical, and went into complete shock so much so that I could not recall anyone’s phone numbers to call to let anyone know what had happened. I did not have my phone on me, so I was grabbing bystanders phones. I was dialing the wrong numbers as my mind was trying to grasp what was happening. Eventually I did dial Alex‘s number and get a hold of him, he was out of town for work. I was also able to remember Kalins number and called him. After that I just dropped down put my hands over him and called upon every healing energy I could pull down to him. The ambulance arrived after what seemed like an eternity, loaded him and we went to children’s mercy. Life flight was not running due to wind. It was the worst thing I can imagine happening and it did. I cannot believe he is alive.
After all his trauma assessments, he has a fractured skull in two places, a contusion (brain bleed) on his right temporal lobe, huge puncture wound on his upper buttocks (thank goodness this wasn’t into an organ or lung), all the muscles in the same upper buttocks cheek were ripped from the bone creating an open pocket under the skin, fractured pelvis, broken femur on right leg, Broken left ankle, and road rash all over his body. But considering he was pummeled by a huge car at that speed, his injuries, while very serious, were surprisingly less than they could have been.
Today Kyle is critical but stable in the ICU at Children’s Mercy. We do not think he has permanent brain damage or additional swelling at this time, but he is heavily medicated for his immense amount of pain so it is hard to have a clear knowing. He does respond to commands appropriately and remembers names at random, but took a huge trauma to his head so he’s still recovering. They haven’t cleared his neck/spine out of precaution, and will most likely do an MRI today to look for any injury that might be present. The X-rays look good, so hopefully there is no injury, but it is not worth taking a chance so they are being VERY cautious to clear him. They also have not been able to have a full conversation with him to assess any pain he might be having in his neck. He is wearing a neck brace which seems to be very uncomfortable and he has tried numerous times to pull it off.
He had surgery yesterday to repair his broken femur and it went really well. He has a particularly complicated surgery scheduled Monday for his ankle, we need prayers that this will go well and he retains full blood flow to his foot before and after surgery. He hopefully will be cleared by the neuro team today to move out of ICU to a regular room. He is currently hooked up to tubes and wires, has bandages all over his body, has a wrapped leg to support his ankle, and is trying to rest. He is incredibly itchy so they are trying to get that calmed down for him because he keeps pulling off his bandages.
Overall, they all believe he will recover fully with some time. Everyone continues to tell us how lucky he is, and that they have seen a lot less injury with a lot worse outcomes. We are truly blessed to still have him with us, and not only have him with us, but to have him with us in such little damage considering what he went through. He has The strongest fighter spirit I have ever witnessed, and I am amazed at his will to survive this accident. Again we appreciate all of you, and keep the prayers coming. And we will update as we can. Much love to you all ❤️
