Some Bad News

So.. with all this good that we've had lately, a wedding, starting school, Keith's promotion... I suppose something bad was bound to happen, although no one ever hopes for the worst.

One week ago today, Sunday, September 2, 2012, Keith and I were in a four-wheeling accident, I was driving, and I hit a rock, it ripped the handle bars out of my hands and I lost control, my adrenaline started pumping and told me we either needed to jump or we would wreck into the ditch and tree.  So I half jumped, half fell off the four wheeler, we were going about 30 MPH down Manti Canyon. We were on our way down the main road from Skyline drive, only about 2 miles from the top.

Keith, being the hero he is, tried to save me, in the process he ripped my pants.  And broke his arm... Bad. the only thing I remember is seeing Keith's arm dangling.  I have never seen anything so gross in my life.  We hurried down the mountain (its a good thing Keith's family was with us.) I landed on my face, shoulder, and elbow.  I was really sore, but I knew nothing was broken. Nadean checked me out and gave me the okay. Keith however, wasn't so lucky.  We rushed to Gunnison Valley Hospital and got him checked out. The Dr. that was there didn't know how to go about fixing it so he sent us up to Mountain View Hospital in Payson.  Dr. Wallentine put him out and set it.  He sent us home to be careful, and we were to come back on Friday to see if it is staying.

So we went home, and the week that insued was really rough.  Keith was in so much pain.  (Plus he was allergic to the medicine he was on)  So we went back on Friday.  We found out he has to get surgery on Tuesday, they're going to put a plate and some pins in to hold it.  He's really scared, so any thoughts and prayers you have for him would be appreciated.

Thanks Guys
