    I was up all night. He’s in surgery now.
    I posted in the graveyard shift thread last night just to give myself something to do:

    I finally crashed as the sun was coming up. Going to shower and eat and pull myself together.

    Truly appreciate the prayers and well-wishes.

    So sorry Craig! I hope he heals quickly.

    Was it a simple accident or was the motorist cited at all?

    @HomerTaco Hope your son heals fast and well, and hope you get through this quickly as well. Having your kids hurt is the worst.

    I’m so sorry to hear that happened to your son Craig. I can only imagine the hardship you’re going through at the moment but I know you’ll be strong for your son and family. You guys are in our prayers and we wish Mason a speedy recovery.

    He is out of surgery and in recovery at Children’s Hospital. I just took some time to thank all of my neighbors who rushed to his aid when it happened. I also paid a visit to the jewelry store at the end of our street, they have high resolution video and I was actually able to watch the accident on video.
    The most difficult thing I’ve ever had to look at.

    I just got home. The surgery went well and they have his arm back in the correct shape. He was still out of it due to the concussion but he was much more responsive to both of us this evening. Bonnie is of course staying with him and I’ll head back again tomorrow.

    We’re not out of the woods but we definitely see the clearing ahead.

    Again, I appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers!

    Thank you

    Tough day for him today. Lots of pain with the arm and nausea from the concussion.
    The staff is most worried about that part. Still under observation.
    Moms staying with him & ive got my daughter back from the in laws. Hopefully we’ll all be under one roof again tomorrow

    He might also be a little sick from pain killers. I remember being on some when I had a broken jaw at 15, and on an empty stomach they do a number on you.

    Hope this passes quickly.

    She was a train wreck. Still is. I would be too. I spoke to her husband yesterday after Masons surgery and let him know he’d be ok. Two of their 7 kids are in classes with both of mine.
