On Sunday, December 28, 2003 at around 10:30pm, our beautiful son Nicholas was riding in the front passenger seat of his friend Zachary’s Honda Accord, and in the bad seats were Nick’s girlfriend Mary, and Zach’s girlfriend Brittney. They were traveling on a remote curvy country road in southern Cedar Hill when the car lost control, left the road and collided with a tree in thick woods. The passenger door and roof of the car took the brunt of the impact and the car came to rest on its driver's side, wrapped around the tree.
Nick was in the car 3 hours. It took the paramedics 2 hours to cut him out of the wreckage. He has compound fractures of both legs. He was flown by CareFlight to Baylor Medical Center. Mary suffered a broken collar bone and separated shoulder and crawled out of the car to get help. The other two kids were also sent by CareFlight to Baylor and are still here.
We have been here at Baylor since Sunday night. He had surgery first thing monday morning to repair his right leg, and repair arteries in his left leg.
Nick is in surgery right now (Friday 1/2) for his left leg repair and should be out by noon today. We will be at Baylor hospital at least five more days. Room H-604, phone number
214-818-5604 (if its busy I'm on the laptop modem!)
In order to save time and not overwhelm people with emails, I have set up an online journal which I can update daily, sometimes several times a day. The page is:
Please read the journals for the latest information, and you can also leave him a note in the guestbook if you like.
thank you ALL ~ we have been overwhelmed with visitors, prayers, support, etc. I think the entire student body of Cedar Hill High School has been through here this week.
