Hang In There Grrrrr!!!!

See the little cutie patootie in the white, button down, shirt and tie? Well he is not doing so well these days. This picture is from my wedding reception, 12 years ago, and let me just say that he is a LOT bigger now. His name is Greg, but I will forever call him "Grrrr. " That's what he said his name was a long time ago at a 4-H event, and it still sticks...at least in my book :)

A week ago on Wednesday, Grrr was in a bad accident, that involved him being struck, on his motorbike, by a car that ran a stop sign....right by Amber's house. Poor boy was thrown into a field and rescue crews had to search quite a while--in the dark !--for him. Needless to say, Grrr suffered some major trauma, which included a badly fractured arm and leg, a fractured cheek, multiple rib fractures, two collapsed lungs, and undetermined internal bleeding. He was conscious, but due to his vital signs weakening, from the internal bleeding, the doctors have placed him on a ventilator, and he now has pneumonia to add to his list of problems. Hopefully today, they are going to try and get him off of the ventilator, so his lungs can start functioning properly...thus aiding in ridding him of pneumonia. I just want to say "Hang in there Grrr," and to ask you to please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Grrr is off his ventilator ! 08/12/08 and reportedly eating ice cream and drinking iced tea wondering how he got into so much hospitalization. Thank you all for prayers, he was one of my 4-hers way back when I was Melanie's age!
