If you haven't heard by family or on the news, Nick's brother Blake was the person driving the van that crashed into the back of a semi-truck this morning. He was sent to Grant where his spleen was split in three places. He had a collapsed lung, liver damage and alot of blood lost. Both legs are broken and exposed to the bone and his arm is broken. He had several surgeries, one to remove the spleen and another to repair his legs - which will be one of many leg surgeries.
The good news is the CAT Scan results showed no head trauma or spinal injury. He is still listed as Critical in the ICU. Hopefully he will continue to improve. He did wake up but they quickly put him back out so he wouldn't fight the tubes.
Thank you so much for the prayers, emails, calls, visits and thoughts. We know Blake is fighting and we are going to fight right along with him.
