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 has been doing therapy for two weeks now and things are progressing nicely. Her personality is really starting to come through as her brain continues to heal. PT and OT have been working on getting her right side moving and building strength so she can transfer easier from the wheelchair to the bed etc., with the hopes that she will be more independent as she progresses. Speech therapy has been working on her speaking, short term memory and eating. She should be cleared to eat solid foods soon.

The plan moving forward is to have her home in about 2 weeks where I will be her caretaker while transporting her to and from outpatient rehabilitation. Amy says she’s determined to get out of the wheelchair, and we will help her with that every step of the way.

Thank you again for all of the support, we are all overwhelmed by it.

Amy update. She’s doing pretty good, they keep her very busy. She has moments of frustration and forgetfulness and will sometimes speak gibberish but that’s all normal for someone recovering from a TBI and typically does not last. Her personality is starting to come through a bit, saying things like “bull crap” which was always her go-to phrase and calling Parker by her nickname. She also flipped me off, which was great. Physically she’s been standing with the aid of machines and is already showing slight movement in both her right leg and arm. She also did much better on her swallow test and should some foods by mouth soon. Still a long way to go but I’m happy with the progress this week.
