Terell’s Quest for Strength & Mobility
On November 24, 2019 Terell was sledding with his brothers when he lost control and slid off the trail. He landed on a large boulder breaking his C5, T5 & T6 vertebrae. He was flown by LifeFlight to a Regional Hospital where he went through several surgeries to repair his broken bones. As a result of the accident Terell is diagnosed with a complete C5 spinal cord injury (paralyzed from the chest down). After weeks in ICU and inpatient rehab, Terell has started experiencing some improvement in regaining strength and mobility in his upper body. Terell’s long term prognosis remains uncertain.

As we come to the end of this amazing year, as many people are exited to see this year come to an end. We have come extremely grateful for all the many miracles and blessings we have seen in Terell’s recovery. Terell has completed all of the available at home therapy that insurance allows. We have been blessed with some amazing therapist that have become part of our family as they have challenged and helped Terell in regaining strength and mobility. Some of the things that Terell is able to do on his own as a result of this therapy includes being able to brush his teeth, feed himself, able to lift heavier weights, sitting up with out being propped up, roll over in his bed and many more things. Things that we often take for granted and don’t even thing about until those capabilities are no longer there. Thanks to all those that have supported Terell over the past year, we are extremely grateful for all you have done for Terell and our family.
