Living in Florida, we wanted a girls vacation to play in the snow for a few days in Colorado. We rented snowmobiles to see some of the most beautiful scenes of Colorado.

We climbed up to the top and on the way back down Zaida lost control of the snowmoble and crashed into a tree.

Shortly after the accident, several firemen from Boulder came upon us. They happen to be there on their day off to also play in the snow.

They immediately took action by getting her stabilized and taking off their coats in -10 degrees to keep her warm.

Night was approaching quickly, we had yet to ride back down the mountain. They stayed with her, kept her warm and stable. When the helicopter arrived, they got her in and she was transported to level one trauma center in Denver.

Upon arriving at the hospital, Zaida injuries were severelly critial. Multiple face fractures and slight bleeding on the brain. Later it was determined her left wrist was dislocated with ligement damage.

The ER room made sure she was stable and got her ready for facial reconstruction surgery the next day.

The surgery took a little longer than anticipated due to the extent of fragments to be reset.

She is now recooperating in the hospital. Thankfully there was no neuro damage.

We need help in getting her back home safe. We are not able to fly due to the trauma, we will be driving her back to Florida from Colorado.

She will be off work for at least 6 weeks and still will need surgery on her left wrist upon returning home. She will need help with living and medical expenses during her recovery. Anything will help.

God bless everyone for your prayers and thoughts, we can feel them.

From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank you all for the best wishes, warm hugs and prayers.
This while having been a horific, scarry time for us we also recognize just how blessed we are. Zaida is home recoperating from surgery and while she still has some challenging times to come we know that very few people survive these kinds of accidents . Today her parents have their daughter, her grandkids have their "ava" which is what they call her :) her daughter has her mom, her husband has his wife and I have my amazing sister. Thank you again for all the blessings sent our way. Because of you we were able to bring her home and even help with a few bills to come. We are blessed with all of you! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
Thank you all so so much !
