Weekend family trip gone wrong.
Hi, My Name Is Joe and this is my coworker Matt Robinson. A little back story about Matt. Matt works out of town, away from his family as an electrician. We work about 3 hours from home in Mississippi and stay in a hotel anywhere from 4-5 nights a week. Matt had planned a weekend trip for him, his wife, his 2 girls ages 2 and 4 and his stepson age 11. We got off work and drove back home on Friday 9/29/17. His plan was, when he got home, to pack up and head out to a park in Alabama. As they were driving on a two lane interstate at night a driver going in the opposite direction drifted in their lane and at at the last second the other driver swerved but he was to late. Matt and his family had a head on collision. After Matt came to he was able to get his three children out of the car but was not able to get his wife out. Matt now has a minor broken back, a broken nose and a broken left hand. His wife has 2 broken femurs, a broken ankle, a broken knee and a broken left arm. His 11 year old stepson got a hernia from the seatbelt and had to be cut open all the way across his stomach to remove a part of his stomach and a small part of his intestine. His 4 year old daughter got a tare in her liver and his 2 year old daughter only had seatbelt rash. As you can clearly see from the pictures of the car ALL of them were very blessed to be alive. Matts wife works from home but clearly will not be able to bring in any income. We have no idea how long Matt will be out of work for so they will not have any income for the time being. Our crew is trying to come together to set up this gofundme account to help Matt and his family with any bills while they recover. Anything is GREATLY appreciated. Our thoughts and prayers are with this family.
Thank you for all of your help.
Matt is making progress. It is going to take time, of course, to heal but in the mean time he is seeing different doctors for all of his injuries.
Matt's wife, she is recovering good, however, she is still in the hospital. She has had all of her surgeries and has started physical therapy. She is expected to be in the hospital for roughly 14 weeks.
Matt's step son is doing better but is still in the hospital. He is moving around and doing everything they ask of him. He is expected to be in the hospital for around 2 more weeks.
Matt's oldest daughter had a checkup yesterday is doing better.
Matt's youngest daughter is doing great and is back to her normal self.
We appreciate EVERYONE'S donations and prayers and hope that we can continue to get the love and support that everyone has shown. Thank you again and God Bless!!!
