Austin, a 16 year old sophomore at Rye High School in Rye Colorado was involved a roll over accident on his way to baseball practice. Following a flight for life he endured brain surgery and is now sedated in a coma recovering.
All prognosis are promising and Austin is now on his way to recovery. With an incident such as this comes the additional large cost of what insurance doesn't cover and so many other expenses. A fund has been set up to help the family at https://www.gofundme.com/zj96rxqs
Update Thursday January 21st from Austin's mom Dee:
"God has truly blessed us with the healing of Austin still daily he improves and becomes more and more Austin. His short term memory is healing wonderfully and he is remembering most things of recent again so he can begin again to learn new things and hold on to the foundation to build. Hoping to start an online Geometry class soon where Karen will be working with him and then he can finish the class and have a full geometry credit.
Austin is going to 2 classes a day and excelling in all tasks we were told would be extremely difficult for him to do!!! Praise and more praise. Dizziness when first standing up has improved and actually rarely happens any longer. Sometimes I feel like I'm raising a 12 year old boy again and really in fast motion I am, pray for my strength there he almost did not survive those years the first time around.
Yesterday I found a report from children's hospital and read a lot of Austin's actual injury. I must say I never doubted who Austin's great healer was, but now more than ever I must praise God for all he has done and the recovery Austin has had thus far he is a miracle. I know God has great plans for Austin and I'm blessed for God giving him back to us, for I know one day I will see him play his loved sports again, and go to dances, graduate high school, and so much more. I do know that doesn't always happen and I see this miracle.
As we face life, things are different now, I am different now, our family is different. Pray for us as we move into the next chapters of life and the choices we make for this family I pray for God to lead it all and open the doors for us to travel and close the ones that are to be left in the past."
