"Hunter, meet the street lamp"

I was in downtown Greensboro with classmate Emily working on a multi-media assignment, when I got a phone call that my son Hunter had been in a scooter accident.  He was thrown into the air at 35 mph and hit a street lamp. I raced to Cone where hospital chaplain took me to the family consultation room to report that Hunter had multiple broken bones, but miraculously no head or internal injuries.  He broke his right scapula, right humerus in 3 places, right knee cap, L4 (lower back), ischium (base of pelvis), and left femur. He went into surgery for 9 hours to put a rod in his leg and multiple plates and screws in his arm and elbow.
Hunter was transferred to the step down unit afterwards where he was the life of the party for about 36 hours, but has since been transferred to ICU and put on a Bipac to help with respiratory complications. He has yet to complain about pain, and his only complaint was a nurse that didn't want him to talk.  He said she bringing negative energy to what had otherwise had been a positive experience!
Home Depot is now out of screws.

I am so thankful that God protected Hunter, when the accident could have been much more tragic. Please pray for a speedy and complete recovery.
