Hunter Bell, a 9 year old 3rd grader, was tragically hit by a SUV after school while waiting in the car pickup line. He was sitting on a bench with his classmates against the school when the SUV jumped the curb hitting Hunter. The majority of the trauma was to Hunter's lower right side of his body before crashing into the building.
His right leg took the majority of the impact creating a 10-12 inch jaged laceration on the inside of his leg, blowing out his femur requiring a plate and 10 screws and leaving a large area of missing bone due to it crumbling away, fracturing the tibia, tearing the quadricept muscle, damaging the ligaments of the knee, and loosing a significant amount of blood requiring a blood transfusion. Due to all the trauma, Hunter underwent a 4 1/2 hour surgery. One week later, Hunter went in for his check up appt and to possibly put on his cast. After the doctor assessed Hunter and his wound, he decided to go in for a second surgery due to persistent fever.  During the surgery they found the cause and had to cut out dying tissue, put in a drainage tube, and a wound vac.  Another surgery is scheduled just around the corner. 3 surgeries all within a week and a half is wearing on the little guy and his family.  We all know that God has had a role in all of this from the very beginning and is constantly showing his grace. Thank you for taking the time to read about Hunter's healing and road to recovery. Please join us in hopeful prayer for steadfast faith, peace, comfort, strength, understanding and complete healing of mind, body, and soul. 

We know this will be a long road, but as Hunter has repeatedly said to his Momma, "You can't quit. You have to PERSEVERE!"

It has almost been 9 months since Hunter's accident and he has come a long way with God's strength and the support he has received from his friends and family around him. Hunter is a very happy and thankful little boy who strives to be better and stronger everyday. Whether it is physically or mentally, it still takes great determination and hard work for a boy his age. We pray he sees the light and understands that the struggle will be worth it in the end! We love you Hunter! Stay strong and continue to persevere each and every day! #hopeforhunter #Godisgood

It has been 4 weeks since Hunter has survived an unexpected accident. After the 3 surgeries he is now on a promising road to recovery. Dr. Chong and Dr. Skunda said everything is looking really well and Hunter has received the skin graft beyond their expectations! The X-rays show that the bone is starting to fill in where there's deformity from the impact. 
Dr. Chong feels if everything goes the way it's going Hunter could be up on his feet and walking in as little as 2 months!!! 
Hunter is remaining positive and continuing to PERSEVERE. All the thoughts and prayers are working! Thank you all! GOD is Great!!
