On the evening of August 23rd, Wesley and Christina Sikes were involved in a horrific motorcycle accident in Watertown, NY. Although, we are still unsure what time the accident occurred, all we know is they were found by a State Trooper in a ditch off a County Road sometime after midnight and both careflighted with internal injuries.
Wesley has a broken back, broken right ankle, lacerated kidney, multiple broken ribs, and a punctured lung. He has had 1 blood transfusion, was placed in acoma upon arrival, but is now alert and breathing on his own with a chest tube. He is scheduled for orthopedic surgery Tuesday/Wednesday! Doctors suspect he will most likely develop pneumonia because he is unable to cough due to a punctured lung and broken ribs.
Christina has a shattered pelvis, broken right femur (thigh), broken left tibia (shin), broken left ankle, and has other extreme internal injuries. She has had 6 blood transfusions so far. On Friday she went into surgery and they believe they were able to stop the internal bleeding. During surgery they placed a rod in her femur, and also began to work on the left tibia, ankle and pelvis. She is scheduled for another surgery Monday to work on the pelvis, other internal injuries, and work more on her left tibia & ankle. She is in a lot of pain, but she is able to understand what you’re saying and talk to you when she’s awake. Due to the amount of pain she is in they keep her on a lot of pain meds, which makes her sleep a lot! She will require several more surgeries.
Although, they are both young and healthy, they have a long road to recovery. They are expected to both be in the hospital for the next month, but will be transferred to a medical rehabilitation center after. They are both incredibly strong and are getting better everyday!
A heavy percentage of the donations will go towards their physical rehabilitation. The remainder will go towards medical bills that insurance does not cover, other unpaid bills that need to be paid due to not being able to work for months, and to help with expenses for their 2 young boys.
Also, please keep in mind that they are both still in surgical ICU and visitors are limited to only family right now. If anyone wants to send flowers, you will have to wait until they are moved due to keeping the area sterile that they are in now. I plan on updating this post twice a week to give everyone a status update on both of them!
Carter and Cooper are currently in great hands with the Kampnich family. I appreciate everyone’s prayers and support!
