NWR - My brother broke his back
Hi ladies - I need all the comfort and prayers I can get. My grandma called asking if I had been on facebook today.. I had, but not to see the post that she was apparently referring to.

My brother (21 yo) broke his back riding his fourwheeler. All I know is that he has two broken vertebrae and he's being medi-vac'd to the closest large hospital. I hate the feeling of helplessness.

What a great bday present...

Aww Merfy Lou, that's awful. My brother broke his back too several years ago and made a complete recovery so keep a good thought. He and you are in my prayers.

Thanks ladies - I just got off the phone with my dad, who just got off the phone with the nurse. He will not require surgery, but will be in the hospital until at least Monday. And will likely be in a brace for awhile. Everything appears to be functional right now.

Mostly just scared the crap out of me (like he always does).

Merfy that is exactly what my brother had to do. He had physical therapy and rehab therapy and moved pretty quickly from a brace to a walker and then after six weeks was pretty much back to normal. Glad it wasn't anything more serious and that he is going to be ok.

So sorry to hear about your brother. Glad that it wasn't as serious as it could've been. 4 Wheelers are SO dangerous! Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
