On Sunday, July 17, Aaron and Kari were driving through Kansas coming from a wedding. They were traveling to Omaha to visit Kari's family.
On a two lane highway, a car in front of them quickly slowed down to turn left. In an effort to avoid the car, they swerved off the road into a ditch. They were riding in a rented convertible, which flipped when they hit the ditch. Aaron escaped with minor injuries (cuts and bruises) but unfortunately Kari suffered a broken neck and spinal cord damage at C5.
She was airlifted to Denver where she underwent spinal cord surgery Sunday night. The surgery was very successful and the doctors are hoping that they have set up her spinal cord for some regeneration. The next two weeks will be critical in determining the recovery. Please pray for Aaron and Kari as they endure this difficult time.
