For Steve Earnest's friends and prayer groups. I know what it is like waiting for info about friends in need.
Daughter just posted second surgery to repair lungs and chest went well. No trach tube. The first surgery found "only" 4 broken vertabrae to repair. That work was half of the expected 8 hours. Now to wait for some healing before tackling the next set of injuries. I don't know if he has been allowed to be awake for any length of time yet. I hope to get by again tomorrow.
Ed Winkle was right. I have never heard of anyone surviving the way he was crushed. It could only be God, Steve's EMT wife, kids and a skid steer that happened to be right there that kept him alive. All heros in my book.
