On Monday November 2, 2009, my brother Jim, was involved in a serious motorcycle accident. The wreck occurred when a lady pulled out in front of him on Highway 46 in New Point, IN. The incident happened at around 4:30pm. Jim was on his way home.
When the wreck occurred, two men witnessed it. One ran out to Jim, the other to stop traffic and check on the driver of the SUV. An ambulance was called however in the oncoming traffic were a nurse and a doctor from Batesville. Those two helped stabilize Jim before the ambulance arrived.
Jim was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis that evening. He suffered a broken Pelvic Bone, a fractured Tibia and multiple abrasions to his head and face.
On Tuesday morning a team of doctors came in to address his injuries. Brain surgeons viewed X Rays before Jim was taken into surgery to repair the Pelvic Bone. At this time, the surgery to repair his cranial damage and facial lacerations has been rescheduled for Friday November 6th. This procedure will be one of removing any bone fragments and reconstruction of Jim’s forehead.
Jim remembers nothing of the accident. He and I talked that afternoon at 3PM. He doesn’t even remember us speaking. Doctors say this is typical (Short Term Memory Loss) due to the injury Jim received.
With an injury such as a broken Pelvic Bone, Jim will be in physical therapy for several weeks. During this time, he will not be able to work.
Friends I must be honest with you. This will be a huge burden for my brother. He is a godly man and a wonderful father to his 4 sons. Christmas will be here soon, but just like us; he has a house payment, insurance, electric bill, car payments, and the expenses of just “life”. Mary (his wife) will need as money to go to and from the hospital, money to eat on, and the cost of visiting her husband.
Jim is my big brother and has impacted MY LIFE, MORE than I could ever tell you! His ministry of singing gospel music, working in the healthcare field for years has also affected THOUSAND other lives.
God has had His hand on my brother throughout this tragedy. The out pouring of love and prayers has been overwhelming. For every prayer, I want to personally thank you.
I want to ask you, friends of ours; will you stand with me and help my brother?
I have set up a TRUST FUND to help him. My mother, Jim and Mary will be the only ones to have access to this account.
