Tom was in a motorcycle wreck Saturday, January 5, 2019 while he and a friend were out on a beautiful Texas day in Fredericksburg. The Texas Hill Country is beautiful!!  He rounded a corner and a red vehicle was coming in to his lane. He moved over and his front tire hit gravel. He flipped three times before being thrown from his Harley. He was wearing a helmet and leathers, THANK GOD!  Emergency personnel arrived very quickly and he was Care flighted to University Hospital in San Antonio. This is a Trama 1 unit and is absolutely amazing. Tom is receiving great care in the ICU unit. 

Tom has three fractures on his neck and seven on his spine. One fractured is on both sides! He has 19 ribs fractured as well as a crack at the base of his skull. He had bleeding on his brain which has now stopped. The Doctors are not sure right now if he has any brain damage. 

Because all the back fractures, he has to lay flat on his back. This has caused lung/breathing issues and they have had him on a ventilator and tubes to help with drainage. This weekend they did a tracheotomy to remove the tube down his throat to prevent infection. 

Tom and Jackie have a long road ahead of them. Jackie is an elementary school teacher and has ran out of all her paid time off. Tom is self-employed and now has no income. So this means they have no money coming in. They are expecting to be at the hospital a couple more weeks and then rehab. Tom will have to wear a neck and back brace for at least 6 months once released from the Hospital. 

Jackie knows God is guiding the Doctors that are seeing Tom and she knows the power of prayer and relies on her faith to keep her strong. 

Please, any donation is greatly appreciated. 

Thank you!

Update: my sweetheart lost his fight on January 26th from injuries he received from someone running him off the road on his motorcycle and never stopped . Tom service had full military honors. He was escorted to his final resting place in Albany Texas by the Patriot Guard, which he was a proud member of, & ended with the guys he worked with driving their 18-wheelers. Thank you everyone that has donated or still wanting to donate. This money will help to pay for his funeral expenses. Love to you all.

Update on Tom Hart from Jackie:
They gave Tom different meds for pain and anxiety on Monday night. They totally knocked him out for 3 nights and 2 full days. It took awhile to get them out of his system. Tom is actually awake today and smiling♥️. Yea!!! They did a head CT scan and found where he had a couple of head injuries instead of 1. BUT those are disappearing and looking good!!!! They are talking about transferring him to an acute care facility in Abilene this weekend or the first of next week hopefully. He will be there about a month or so for physical therapy and rehab so the length of time may be shorter depending on his progress. I know him well and he will probably be out of there in a week. Lol. He still has a tracheotomy in for now so can’t talk:(. Hopefully that will come out in a couple of days. He will have to wear his back brace and neck brace for several months. God has truly walked with us in this journey. I can feel his presence every day. Much love to everyone. Keep the prayers coming for full recovery and strength in his journey.
