In a flash

My mom, dad, and I decided to go snowmobiling over the holiday's and while it started off a fun adventure things took a horrible turn for the worse. My mom's visor fogged and visibility was limited due to snowy conditions as she went to clear her mask she missed a left turn, leading her snowmobile off a cliff appox. 50 feet tall. About 10-15 feet down her snow mobile crashed into a tree. We believe she hit the tree with her right side and it threw her over the snow mobile into the snow. After the accident she was treated in the Redmond ER and then transported to Haborview hospital. At the moment she does not have health insurance and would typically not ask for financial help, but with no health insurance and multiple days being spent in the hospital for recovery any donation is greatly appreciated. By the grace of God she is alive and making progress, but is in a great deal of pain. Shortly after the accident her tempature was lower than normal and her pulse was erratic. Her pulse and tempature have now reached normal levels but she is still struggling with her more serious injuries. She is experiencing extreme pain and is not able to stand or walk for the time being. She fractured all of her lower 5 vertebrae in her spine with a total of 9 fractures and 3 cracked ribs along with bruising and swelling throughout her body. We appreciate your prayers and donations. If you would like to give directly, please feel free to message me. Thank you for your thoughts!
