life can turn on a dime

Yesterday afternoon, our older son had a biking accident.

His back is broken in three places. There is no nerve or brain damage. We are in the Surgery, Trauma, and Burn ICU at the University of Virginia. As of this morning, we are waiting for an MRI; this will tell us whether or not he will need a brace (the more likely scenario, I think), or surgery.

He will heal.
We are calm…and very, very tired.

Love to all of you.
