Some of you may know that on Christmas Eve, our brother Matthew and sister-in-law Holly and their unborn baby were in a horrific car accident. Both were taken from the car unconscious, but Matthew regained consciousness at the scene, while Holly did not regain consciousness until she was in ICU unit. Holly had to be cut out of the car. This occurred when a car barreled through a residential neighborhood at a very high rate of speed and T-boned their car on Holly's side. Holly was driving.

 Matthew is minimizing his injuries, all the while taking care of Holly. Both had concussions. She has multiple hip fractures, on both sides, and skull fractures, including her sphenoid and temporal bones, laceration of her ear canal, and other injuries. There will be a long road to recovery for Holly including rehabilitative therapy. Matthew is Holly’s primary care taker at this point.                                    

It is most tragic that, by Christmas Day, ultrasound showed that Holly and Matthew's precious baby had died due to this accident. The emotional and physical toll on them is unimaginable. We are all at a loss for words as we grieve this together.

It will be some time before they can get back to work. We are doing this in an attempt to help them lessen their stress and worries during this time. There will be mounting medical bills, legal fees and the like. Any help would be forever appreciated and we know they will be infinitely grateful. If you are unable to help, please send prayers and/or positive thoughts. Thank you from our entire family.

I want to send heartfelt thanks to all our friends, family and well-wishers for the many and ongoing donations to Matthew and Holly's fund. They are appreciative beyond words (we all are!) and this fund is the "ways and means" to get them through the modifications they are having to make in their apartment for Holly to become mobile, and through Holly's time off (without pay because her benefits have not kicked in after she changed jobs a couple of months ago!) and the other unexpected costs related to this accident.

We are so happy to report that Holly has been home for a couple days now -- and improving each day. She is in a wheelchair and uses a walker to get around as much as possible. She was even able to go to the park for fresh air with the help of Matthew. And they are celebrating little victories like the first time she was able to dress herself! It’s the small things, but they are taking it one day, one moment at a time. She will be having physical therapy and continued care as she recovers. Matthew is devotedly taking care of every need, with the amazing backup of friends and family. They both have a positive outlook, are both thankful and caring for each other. And they are truly thankful to God for their blessings in the midst of this trial.
