Halloween started great. We were excited to go trick or treating.... until disaster happened. Van got hit by a car. We are so thankful his injuries are not life threatening. He has a fractured pelvis, cracked heel, bruised lung and his ligaments in his 1st two vertabraes torn. He had surgery on his neck.... they took bone from his hip and placed it in his neck, holding it together with a metal plate and 4 screws. He has to wear a neck brace for another month. And recovery will be about 4 months. He is such a brave boy. Truly a miracle he is alive and nothing else was wrong. We know he was watched over by his guardian angels. He is still the smiliest kid you will ever meet!!!
The pictures below are probably out of order, but they are of him in the plane going down to Children's hospital in Utah, some in the hospital and 1 I took today... he sure is happy to be home!!

3 weeks ago, Tyson had an accident at work. He fell off a roof. NOT FUN! His ankle joint dislocated, which made his foot turn in a position it shouldn't have. He tore all the ligaments in his foot, and his nerves were all damaged. And part of his bone chipped off. It was pretty nasty... (i have pictures of his foot but i won't post it for you who are "weak of the stomach.) He broke his wrist in 2 spots. Tore his lip totally open and cut above his eye. Poor guy looked like he got ran over by a train. We have a lot recovery ahead of us. He isn't able to put ANY pressure on his foot for at least 6 weeks. and his wrist for 3 months. And he has to go in for surgery again in a couple weeks. (if anyone DOES want to see pics of his foot...let me know!! i think they are pretty cool...)
