Was in a bad accident

Recommended Posts

If any of you follow me on FB or Instagram you might of heard or seen that I was recently(November 13th) I was involved in a bad accident while at work or of your from WNY heard about it on the news or radio.

 

a little background I’m a tow truck operator and was finishing up winnching out a vehicle from a ditch on the side the road on 390 in Rochester NY. I had finished with the struck vehicle when a F150 hit some black ice stared to fish wait went off the road at 50mph and struck me as I was putting stuff away in my tow truck. Sent me flying down the highway about 60yards my mom said.

 

shattered my pelvis in 4 spots, broke the two little bones on my skull that connects it to the spine, ruptured a kidney, spleen, liver and suffered severe brain injurie. Spent 5 weeks in the hospital 15 days of which was in enduced coma.

 

My memory was shot when I first woke up but is slowly coming back more and more every day still struggle with short term but long is coming back stronger every day. I’m still in a wheel chair till the 22nd of January when I find out if i can put pressure on my legs more than the stand and pivot I can do now to change seats. Which I think that appointment will go good I feel great considering the situation. 

 

They sent me home just before Christmas which was cool being home but pretty immobile considering how I used to be. End goal is to be up and walking in time to bust the kayak out when the weather snaps out of the cold funk and do some fishing. 

 

Heres some one pics of me hooked up to all the machines keeping me alive at first then when I woke up and gave my boss some thumbs up about how I was feeling. And then coming home to my 3 year old who was missing me like crazy.

Wow!  It's amazing that you are doing so well considering what you've been through.  Glad to hear you are recovering.  Keep it up.  Follow your care givers instructions to a tee.  Do not be tempted to overdo.

 

Slow and steady wins the race.

 

You've got a few months before kayak time.

 Yeah that’s been tough I do my exercises each day like they said to not walking or standing very long has been tough since my pain levels are way down. Certain movements of my legs and pelvis almost bring tears to my eyes others are fine and pain free.

Not going to dwell on the scare you went through on Nov 13, just going to say you made it and keep going. Get stronger very day and keep thinking about family and fishing, because that makes you stronger every day.
