Everyone say a prayer please!

Hi everyone I need everyone who reads my journal to send a prayer out for a very good friend of my husbands! We got one of those calls this afternoon you never want to recieve. He was in a terrible accident!

It was all supposed to be him having fun with his buddies but the worst case happened. He was running around downtown Mpls in a parking lot jumping fences and when his buddies went right, he went left thinking he could jump the fence on the left side and beat them and end up in front them like "HA HA" I beat you here.

Well he jumped and realized right when he jumped there was no ending, he ended up falling 50 feet onto the interstate! He broke both legs, shattered his heels completely, broke his back, broke his arm and shattered his knuckles. The doctors say the only reason he lived is because he knew to land on his feet and he did which is why his body pretty muchly shattered. He was awake and alert the whole fall and even after landing, he called his own ambulance with his friends 50 feet above him screaming "don't move!".

He has had three surgeries so far, and has many more to come. They do not know if he will walk again. If so it is going to take a long time. He is expected to be in the hospital a month minimum, and will go home in a wheel chair. He is still young this is so sad! He is 27 and has a one year old girl.

We went to the hospital immediately after we got the call and stayed for a couple hours, we will go back tomorrow.  So please pray for him in the year to come, his life as he has always known it as a very outdoorsy, sport oriented type of guy is over and it is going to be SO hard for him!

Thanks much!

Love and hugs,
