On Tuesday, August 21st, my mother, little sister(13), and little brother(6) Jospeh, were in a terrible car accident. Their car rolled and flipped upside down, landing on its roof.  Sadly, my brother had to be air lifted to children's hospital due to his conditions. Since then, he's remained in ICU, after 2 surgery's, in a medically induced coma. Brain surgery was required due to his brain swelling, to implant a chip to monitor the pressure in his head. 4 pins were placed in his left leg where he broke his femur.  Afterwards he was placed in a halo, due to torn ligaments in his neck, in fear he would thrash around and make things worse. He now faces spinal and leg surgeries. My mother was also hospitalized for 3 days after the accident. During that time she had to have surgery on her arm to fix her multiple breaks, and be monitored for her bruised spleen. Fortunately, my little sister was released the night of with minimum injuries. As a result of the accident, my step father has been out of work and glued to my brothers side. With both parents out of work, and joey being in ICU for some time now, there is no money coming in to help pay for bills or prepare for whats to come when hes released. There's no telling exactly what holds in his future at the moment unfortunately, except we know he will require a wheel chair, physical therapy, and multiple doctors visits. We have a long road to recovery, so anything helps. Please keep my brother and family in your prayers in these hard times.
