To everyone who loves Emmie… Thank you for thinking of her and sending her the strength that she will need to recover. Emmie was airlifted to an Trauma Center on Monday, May 15th after the horse she was riding spun and fell on top of her during a Cattle movement at a Ranch she's been working on. She has for all intents and purposes been unconscious since that event. It's important to note that Emmie was still recovering from a concussion sustained last month when she was thrown from a bucking horse onto a fence railing. She also has a broken finger from that incident. Her mom is with her at the hospital along with numerous doctors, surgeons, nurses and specialists are managing her care and monitoring her vitals. She has not been medicated or sedated yet because of the brain injury, persistent swelling and bleeding all confirmed by a full body MRI. Because of this she will remain unconscious for awhile. Emmie sustained at least two skull fractures and is still bleeding from her ears. The Neurosurgeon indicated that 3 to 4 more days of monitoring and progress are necessary to give a reasonable prognosis for recovery. Apparently these types of injuries are quite unpredictable. Her stay at the hospital will likely be a couple of weeks in duration. She will remain in ICU for at least 10 more days. It's still early in this process, yet it's becoming clear that at best she's going to need months to recover to a satisfactory level. That's subject to change obviously. So if that's accurate we'll need to sort out where to best do that recovery. It's unlikely she'll be able to fly. Maybe not even drive for some time. All of those decisions will get made over the next week or two. Thanks for being there for her. Please keep rooting for her speedy recovery.
