Just kidding ... well ...

Hey everyone...

Early this morning around 3:30 am... my best friend, Jason got a call from his mother... Jason's little brother, who is 16 - was staying the night at his friend's house when he got sick and decided to drive himself home instead of staying there... On his way home, he got hit head on by a drunk driver...

His brother immediately got life-flighted to Vanderbuilt Hospital here in Nashville, and is in critical condition... He has to have his face reconstructed, and has a broken arm, leg and ribs. Among that, he has a punctured lung, severe damages to the head and as of 12:00 this afternoon, he still wasn't responding to sound or touch...

PLEASE keep him in your prayers.... this is my best friend's brother and Jason is having a very hard time... as would I if this were my sister or any of you all... The sad part is... He will probably never be himself again... he was an honor roll student and a star basketball player... he was just a normal teenager that was sick and got hit by a dumb drunk who thought he was obviously fine to drive... well think again dumbass!! And the drunk driver has only minor problems.. yeah - go figure... so PLEASE keep him in your prayers... I'm hoping that God will perform a miracle and help him get better 100%... and let this be another lesson to you all that drink... please don't drive!!

His brother's name is Ray...

SO if you can, please keep him in your prayers...

Thank you so much!!

Tiffany

Hey Tiffany...
I'm so sorry that this horrible accident has happened to someone so close to you. I can't imagine how scared and helpless his family and friends must feel right now. You can count on many many prayers from me and my family. I'll pass it on to the prayer chain in our church.

Sorry to hear about this tragedy.

Take comfort in knowing that many (myself included) are praying for Ray and his loved ones.
And may the drunk driver be handed down the most harsh sentence allowed.

Dreadful news, Tiffany. My heart goes out to him and his family. I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers.

On a positive note, Vandy is a top-notch facility so I know he's in very good hands (having spent a decade as a photojournalist in TN, I visited the place on several assignments and saw that firsthand). The fact he reach the hospital via MedEvac is in his favor, too, with that Golden Hour (not photography's, but the medical fields version that shows the faster you arrive to the trauma center, the better).

Be strong and please be sure to keep us posted on his condition when you can.

Dave

Hey Tiffany

Best wishes. Hope the recovery is speedy.

Steve in Montana

P.s. I'm swamped with my day job but will eventually send you some prints from the V.I. workshop.

Sorry to hear the bad news. But, will always send a prayer up for anyone. I will pray for the boy and the family.
Take care and be safe.
