We see these stories on the news everyday and pray everyone is okay. You hope this never happens to you or someone you love. Then one evening the phone rings and it’s that call.

On Friday September 7th, 2018 my beautiful daughter Megan was involved in a horrific car accident. She was headed home from work heading west; when out of nowhere a young man traveling at an excessive rate of speed heading east lost control of his car. He slid off the road, crossed the divided highway and hit Megan head on. With no time to react her car was decimated. Changing her life and ours forever.

Megan is a wonderful Daughter and such a devoted Mother of two beautiful young Daughters’.  She works very hard to provide for these girls. She is always on the run with gymnastics for both girls, softball for both of them as well as cheerleading for the oldest. Of course they are never at the same time or place. Throw in school and work, it leaves little time for much else.  Now with the accident, Megan is unable to do all of these things she loves to do with her girls.

Megan is in critical condition and in a medically induced coma. She sustained a serious head injury, collapsed lung, lacerated spleen, 7 broken ribs (R+L),2  fractured vertebrae, fractured sternum, multiple broken bones including; left femur, right femur( multiple locations), right tibia/right fibula, multiple bones in her right foot, right humerus /left humerus, left ulna, and left radius. All these injury's will require multiple surgery's.

She will be hospitalized for many months with rehabilitation and a lengthy recovery. As you can imagine the other drivers insurance will not cover all of the costs. There are also the day to day costs for the girls and the monthly bills just don’t stop. We are asking for your thoughts and prayers along with any emotional and financial assistance you can give Megan and her family.

We will continue to keep you updated on Megan's journey to recovery.

Today marks two weeks since Megan’s accident. She is making great strides this week. Wednesday they were able to get the surgery done on both her arms. It took almost 6 hours but it was a success and she tolerated it well. Yesterday they took her off of the vent. She is breathing on her own without any assistance. Today was even more exciting. I received a call first thing this morning from her nurse in the ICU. Megan was awake! She is following simple commands. She whispered hi and gave her doctors thumps up. We immediately went to the hospital to visit with her. She tried speaking with us also. It is still difficult and she doesn’t always answer appropriately to a question but it is definitely progress. God is answering all the prayers everyone is sending for her. Please keep the prayers going and continue to share her page. God is showing us he does work miracles as he is healing Megan.

It has been one week now since Megan's horrible accident. She is still on a vent and in the coma. Her lung has re inflated and is doing good so they removed the chest tube yesterday. They were able to surgery on her legs on Wednesday. The put rods and pins in both femurs and the tibia. The tibia also has a wound vac on it to help the skin around it pull tighter. They have not been able to do the surgery on her arms. They have to keep her stable and go at a pace that her body can handle. They are hoping to do surgery early this week. As for the brain injury we just don't have any answers yet. The neuro surgeon said it could be weeks or months before the swelling goes down so we must remain patient.
Please continue to keep Megan in your thoughts and prayers. This is going to be a very long journey for her.
Thank you all very much for all of your support. Thank you for the monetary donations, cards, food and transportation as well as the emotional and spiritual support.
Please continue to share the GoFundMe page for her so that people can see her story and help her out.
Thank you again,
Megan's Family
