Prayer request

My cousin, Julie, is married to Jay. This morning, Jay ran a 1/2 marathon. On his way back to his car, after finishing the race, he was hit by a car.

Two other men were also hit.

All three, and the driver, were taken to the hospital. Of the three, Jay was injured the "least".

His injuries include two broken legs, severe road rash, a gash on his stomach and wrist, several cuts and lacerations on his face.

He had surgery late this afternoon on one of his legs where a rod was put in.

He will be in casts on both legs for, minimum, 6 weeks. And they say that a full recovery might take as long as 10 months.

Julie is 24 weeks pregnant and has a very active 2 1/2 year old little boy. She is going to have a lot of work in the next few weeks. Please pray for strength and courage for her. And for lots of help!

Please pray for Jay and the other two men that were hit by the car. Pray for the families of these men. Pray for the girl that hit them (the accident is being investigated and they are not exactly clear on what happened).

Thank you for your prayers!

Please know that we are praying for Julie and Jay, as well as the others involved. Seems like those kind of stories and accidents are suppose to be in the movies only, not in real life. I'm so very sorry that it did happen. I cannot imagine the load that Julie has on her plate being pregnant, caring for a small child, and attempting to keep a household running and caring for Jay, too. I cannot imagine the recover ahead of Jay, either. I pray for determination, energy, and healing for all involved.

I'm so glad he was not injured any more than that, how scary for Julie to get that phone call. Our thoughts and prayers are with the whole family. He is healthy and young, I'm sure he will heal quickly, Good Luck Jay!

Oh, Dallas. That is so sad to hear. I cannot imagine all that he suffered AND having a pregnant wife and toddler. I hope that they have a good support system and LOTS of help. Keep us posted on this family.
