Help Dusty Littrell

$2,870 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 42 people in 20 months
On the morning of December 3rd Dusty and his grandpa Rocky Littrell were on their way to the Wise Co Toy Run when they were involved in a motorcycle accident just one mile north of our small town Alvord. Dusty, who is 14 and attends 7th grade at Alvord Middle School was care flighted to Cook Children’s Hospital one Fort Worth. Upon arrival Dusty was immediately taken into surgery to repair his badly damaged right arm. His first of several surgeries lasted for over 3 and 1/2 hours. The doctors were able to place pins and screws to stabilize the broken bones but not able to repair the severe road rash located on his wrist. Dusty will need at least 2 skin grafts in order to help the badly damaged tissue on his wrist.
Dusty is on the 4th floor of Cook Children’s Hospital in room 4314 and would absolutely love to have you stop in and say hello.
I’ve known Dusty since we moved to Alvord in 2010. He is in the same grade as my 13 year old son. Dusty has to be the kindest soul I’ve ever known. He loves everyone. And the good people of our community love him just as much.
The part that sucks here is that Eddie, Dusty’s dad doesn’t have health Insurance. And we all know that Dr bills add up fast. So I’m asking you for help. If you can’t donate at this time I completely understand. I truly do. But I am asking that you share this page. But before you do share, please select public on the privacy tab for this post in hopes we reach as many people as possible.
As of now Dusty will be in the hospital for up to 14 days. Maybe longer.

Dusty’s Grandfather, Rocky Littrell is currently in ICU at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. He was also care flighted yesterday after the accident. Drs thought the extent his injuries stopped at a broken collarbone which they operated on yesterday. Today Rocky was told he is paralyzed from the chest down. And that he would never ride a motorcycle again. He is in a traction bed as I type this post with this loving wife by his side. His only concern is his grandson. Please continue to pray for this family as the days ahead will be challenging and uncharted territory for them all.

If you wish to give directly to the family you can write a check out to Eddie Littrell and take it to Legend Bank in Alvord. I can also come to you to pick up any donations.

I will do my very best to post updates once daily to keep you all aware of Dusty’s and his grandpas status.
Please remember to share this go fund me. This family will forever be grateful for every penny they receive.

Dusty just broke out of the hospital! He’s excited to be going home and I imagine his parents are just as happy. There truly is no place like home.

Today Dusty had his 4th surgery done. He leaves the hospital with a wound vac still in place to help promote healing. If all goes well he will return on the 18th to have the device removed. Dusty can return to school after the Christmas break. Once they are settled Dusty and his family would love for you to stop by and visit.

Rocky’s funeral is this Wednesday at Hawkins Funeral Home in Bridgeport Texas. Visitation is from 10 to 11 a.m. With the funeral to follow. He will be buried in Bridgeport.
Dusty is headed home!!! Dec 11 2017.

Friday December 8th update.

Today Dusty had his 3rd surgery. He is doing well considering he’s gone thru 3 extensive surgeries that have lasted for over 3 hours each in less than 5 days. On Monday he will have a skin graft done. And if all goes well he’s looking at a release date next week. The family is ready to be home.

When the accident happened on Sunday we thought Rocky would be going home after healing from a badly broken collarbone. When I created this campaign We didn’t know the extent of his injuries. What we thought was fixable quickly changed overnight. I will never forget hearing Eddie tell me his once healthy father was paralyzed from the chest down. A man that had worked his entire life and wasn’t planning of retiring for some time, suddenly wasn’t able to take care of himself. He would spend his remaining time on earth in a wheelchair depending on others to do for him. That same day Eddie called once again to tell me the family had sat down with the doctors and learned life as they knew it for Rocky was to be over within days. He severed his vocal chords with a piece of his spine. And he broke his neck in several places. He would never speak again. Or move on his own. Years ago, Rocky and Judy spoke of what they would want if they were ever on life support and she honored her husbands wishes. The family planned to end life support this Saturday and urged friends and family to come say their goodbyes. Yet once again Time was not on Rocky’s side. His organs began to fail Wednesday night and his blood pressure was unstable. As Judy sat with Rocky Wednesday night like she has done since the accident she watched Rocky mouth the words “help me”. She quickly asked did you say help me and he mouthed “yes”. The family decided them they would end his suffering Friday after Dusty’s surgery.
Today at 4:30pm the machines were shut down. With his family by his side Rocky quietly left his earthly body to be with the Lord. He is now pain free and with his own father in Heaven.

Dusty was unable to say goodbye. Under no circumstances was he allowed to leave the hospital. When I was with Dusty Thursday night he told me he didn’t want to be there to see him die. He wanted to remember his Papa as the guy who picked him up on Sunday to take him to the toy run. I will always admire Dusty for that. He made such a grown up decision at age 14.

As you can imagine today literally sucks. Grief fills room 4314. In the days ahead this family will bury a good man. Just shy of his 65th birthday. A man that loved a woman named Judy and had the honor of being her husband for 46 years. A man that leaves behind his only son Eddie. 3 grandchildren Chase, Tyler and Dusty. A beautiful daughter in law Jeanie. Barbra, Tyler’s wife who gave him 2 beautiful great granddaughters. And a list of friends a mile long.

I will let you all know when he funeral will take place and where. And I hope to see you there. We want to celebrate the life Rocky lived in his short time on earth. So come as you are and leave when you must.

I urge you to add this family to your prayer list at church. And reach out when you can even if only by phone. The days ahead will be tough but we all know how much better life can be when shared with a friend.

For the very last time since this tragedy began, I Jennifer Jones, am asking you to share this campaign once more. And to give if you can. Dusty is without insurance,as his family doesn’t receive any government assistance, and the bills have already started piling up.
May God bless each and every one of you. And may this Christmas be spent with those you love and hold dear. May you remember that life can change in an instant and there is so much to be thankful for.
I love you all.
Jennifer Jones.
