On November 19th, 2018 our Amy was involved in a life changing car accident. She was driving to pick up her 8 year old daughter and was T-Boned by a Chevy Silverado pulling a 5th wheel driving at 65 MPH.  She was air lifted to Orlando Health and is in Critical Condition and in a Coma.  Amy Sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). She has been diagnosed with a Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI or Brain Shearing) of the mid brain stem. She has been given a less than 50% chance of waking up and recovering. However, we are hopeful and believe with all of our hearts that she will overcome this.  So much financial support is needed as Amy and her husband Jon are facing medical bills that will be in the millions. Her loving husband Jon has taken a leave of absence from his job to be at home with their 8 year old daughter Parker, who is home schooled and to be at the hospital everyday for Amy in the hopes that he can be her long term care giver if she pulls through this. So many things are uncertain at this point but the one thing we know is that the road is going to be very long. We would appreciate any support that you can give as well as prayers and well wishes for our beloved Amy. She is the bravest lady we know and everyday we are hopeful that she will open her eyes again.

We will update as much as we can on her progress.

Thank you and we love you all.

Amy is still showing some slight improvement. She’s mimicking my facial expressions now. I’ll say “do this” and make a face and she’ll do it, without me telling her what it is. That tells me she is comprehending things visually not just by sound. We are so proud of her, she’s doing great!

Amy has another pretty good day today. She was awake the entire time we were there, although she was pretty out of it (understandable given how exhausted I’m sure she is). She didn’t feel like doing too much, although she is really starting to move her mouth and tongue a lot as if to communicate.

She has officially been given discharge orders from the hospital. Her next stop will be a skilled nursing facility (NOT a nursing home) where they will continue to care for her as she recovers.

Thank you again for all your amazing support. Without your help we would literally be in a huge financial burden right now. We love you all.

Amy update. She has made progress every day this week. She’s got the most facial movements I’ve seen yet. Absolutely looks like she’s trying to talk. They’ve got her in another building now waiting to move her to skilled nursing. She’s starting to show signs of being pissed off, which is actually a good thing. Her and I watched a supernatural (her favorite show) gag reel, she was very alert and watched it the whole time.
