I am so sorry. I was misinformed. Ryan's hospital can get him ecards so please send him some too! I can tell you it's exciting everytime a volunteer walks in and says, "I have a card for you." This link should take you to Hurley Hospital Ecards
I am sorry I do not have much of an update on Ryan. It's not that we aren't curious ourselves, we're just not given much information. We hope to go down tomorrow to visit him. I found Ryan's cousin on facebook and this is what he had posted about Ryan on there . . . some of it was new to me, some of it I had heard. As far as Michelle knows, he is in more serious condition than herself, but no details to his injuries. She is aware that he will have some surgeries down the road and a longer recovery time.
"Ryan was air lifted to Hurley Trauma Center in Flint Mich. He has multiple injuries, but he doesn't have internal injuries. Two vertebras in his neck were fractured. He has a broken right ear drum, broken nose, crushed sinuses and 'orbit' around left eye, jaw broken in 3 places, fractured shoulder, ball shattered in left hip socket, left hand broken, right leg shattered. His first surgery will be for the broken jaw. Jan said that she thought they had to wait for the swelling to go down.
The tow truck man told my uncle that the car was probably airborne for about 50 feet. He had 150 feet of cable on his truck and couldn't reach their vehicle. Their possessions were strewn for about 250 feet around the van. "
