A sign without proper markings had been placed in the middle of the sidewalk, and because visibility was poor, I ran directly into a horizontal bar (SEE PICTURE BELOW).
A police officer actually saw this happen to me and called for medical help immediately. I was then rushed to the emergency room at the University Hospital in San Antonio.
After having a CAT scan, I was notified by the doctor that I had approximately 42 fractures in my face and that the damage was severe. I had what was called a LE FORT 3 FRACTURE, which is the highest level of facial/skull fracture.
As they were treating me, my dear wife Juliana Horn, was not allowed to come into the ER at University Hospital right away.
From the time that she first received a phone call from the police officer that I had been involved in a very serious biking accident to the time that she actually saw me, it was about 1 hour.
She was so traumatized because she knew that it was very serious and she didn't even know if I had died from the accident. She had to wait anxiously for that long 1-hour wondering if she had lost me. It's heartbreaking for what she had to endure.
At this time, I am recovering at home but am unable to work due to injuries and emotional trauma. I have not worked for November or December, and I am not expected to go back to work until January due to the severity of my injuries.
We are graciously asking you for prayer support and financial assistance at this time to assist us with our mortgage, medical bills, and other expenses while I am not able to work. Thank you for your generosity.
