Shawn was struck on his way home on August 13th, heading north up the Long Beach peninsula highway. The person who hit him was heading south and turned into Shawn's path.

Shawn was transported to Ocean Beach Hospital in Ilwaco, where he was immediately loaded onto a Life Flight helicopter bound for Vancouver, WA.

Shawn suffers from tremendous physical and neural injuries, including brain hemorrhaging, compound fractures, broken bones in the arms and legs, a shattered pelvis and jaw, and blunt force trauma.

His recovery is being measured in years, and the scope of his brain injuries may only be discovered over 12-24 months.

Multiple surgeries to repair his damaged jaw, arms and legs have only just begun, and after being released from the hospital, Shawn is facing 3 to 6 months full-time in a rehabilitation facility.

Please, if there's anything you can contribute to Shawn's recovery efforts, it is greatly appreciated.

Shawn had two surgeries over the past two days, one to repair his pelvis which was in five pieces. That was very invasive and revealed more damage to his sciatic nerve than the doctors originally knew about.

And yesterday he had a hand specialist work on his left wrist. That went better than expected and he may regain some mobility over time, which was not expected.

He still is not fully aware and still doesn't know where he is or what happened but he is able to talk and respond to questions asked of him.

He remains in the ICU and we hope he will be moved in the next few days to the surgery medical ward.

Your continued support and prayers are very much appreciated. And please pray for Laurel to have strength as she has been with him nearly every day at the hospital.

Shawn was more awake yesterday and able to recognize people. That is a really good sign that his brain is coming "back online" I hope. He goes in for another surgery (#4) today if all goes well. Prayers continue to be needed. Thank you all!

Shawn has undergone several surgeries over the last few days, but we felt a couple of images of his condition would be appropriate. We'll be adding more updates frequently. Thank you.
