Wheels for Micki
On May 26, 2019, our family was involved in a 10 vehicle accident during a sudden dust storm in New Mexico. Our son, Micki, was secured in his wheelchair in the midsection of the van. The rear end impact caused the luggage in the rear of the car to launch forward, slamming into Micki’s wheelchair, breaking the back rest and lunging him forward against the restraints. Micki sustained serious internal injuries and had to be extracted from the van. He was transported by ambulance to Mimbres Hospital in Deming, N.M. and later admitted into Centennial Medical Center in Nashville, TN., where it was discovered that he sustained injuries to his kidneys, bladder, and intestines. Treatment was aggressive but Micki was no longer able to urinate independently. To complicate matters, Micki began to have seizures which caused him to be placed into ICU, further slowing down his progress.

We want to give a special thank to those who have made anonymous donations to our Wheels for Micki fundraiser. Since we are not able to send you a personal note, we wanted to let you know how much your outpouring of
love and generosity mean to us. You are awesome! The fundraiser is making wonderful progress because each and everyone of you! We are about 1/5th of the way to our goal of $20,000. To God be the glory! We feel as if we have many new family members holding up our hands and lifting us up in prayer. To update you regarding Micki’s health, we are sad to report that Micki has been hospitalized for the past 10 days. He’s not been well since the accident but his symptoms were not specific. 10 days ago he woke up with definite signs of illness and has been hospitalized to treat numerous infections which may have started in a toe broken during the accident. He is receiving very aggressive medical treatment and is getting stronger each day. We are so grateful to finally have a diagnosis and treatment plan. The outlook is good and he is finally smiling again. Many thanks to all of you who have been praying for his recovery.
