Thankfully his family heard the horrible screeching and flipping of the four wheeler and ran outside to see what had happened. As they got closer they had noticed Teddy was unconscious and bleeding from the head. Quickly they called 911 and started CPR. After what felt like forever help had finally arrived. Paramedics and EMTs transported Teddy to a nearby field where he was life flighted to UMass Hospital. family quickly got themselves together and headed to the hospital.

 Once the Doctors took him out of the coma they struggled to find the right medicines that would allow him to tolerate the severe pain yet remain carm while being awake and coherent enough for them to get an accurate neuro exam to evaluate his current mental status. Several of these costly medicines were needed to achieve this goal all of with having their own positive and negative side effects. Once he was awake, Teddy had a hard time understanding what had happened and why he was there. His wife, son, and daughter tried there best to make him feel comfortable in this new surrounding. The doctors informed his family that they are concerned about Teddy’s motor skills, and what he could and couldn't do. The best thing for him at that moment would be rest, seeing they were not sure of the final result for the long road to recovery ahead of him.

He tried his best to follow all the doctor's orders, In hopes to be eventually transported to a rehabilitation center, Where they can help Teddy work towards returning to everyday life.
