Aloha to our Friends & Family,
I contact you today in the hopes that you will join me in praying for Theresa's well-being. She was involved in a car accident on Friday morning and medflighted to Queens Medical Center in Honolulu for trauma and orthopedic surgery. Currently, Theresa is in the ICU recovering from six hours of surgery last night to repair her legs and stabilize the blood loss. Further surgery will be required for her arm and neck fractures. By the grace of God, her spinal column appears intact and it looks like the major organs were mostly spared. Theresa is being kept sedated in the hopes that she will gain enough strength to endure the upcoming surgeries. I held her hand and spoke a few words but for now, she's off in lalaland as she likes to say.
Like most ICUs, no gifts are allowed so please send kind thoughts & prayers our way. I will read them to Theresa as they arrive.
P.S. These links are to some local news articles about the crash. Since a highly regarded football player was in the other vehicle, most of the reporting is about Colt Brennan's condition.
Added one more news article from the local newspaper below. Thanks be to God that Theresa always wears her seatbelt and happened to be driving the Saab, one of safest cars around. I heard the local ER doc comment that the rescue crew said they didn't expect to pull a live person out of a wreck that bad.
