I don't know if this is a proper place go this but I feel that I have made many friends on this forum. We were at our cabin close to manistee mi. Over the weekend of the Super Bowl. My son Reese was riding his snowmobile when a 34 year old woman got behind him to take a ride. They went 150 feet or so and struck a tree. My son reese and the woman were flown life flight to Grand rapids hospital. The lady was released last wednesday after lower jaw surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. My son however is still in critical but now stable condition. He was wearing all of his gear as well as a helmet. Reese has been riding his dirt bike his quad and snowmobile for almost 3 years. Hell he even drives our XTZ with me next to him. The doctors say he does have some brain damage but to what extent is unsure. So in closing I am please asking for everyone to keep Reese in your hearts and prayers and I will try to update as I can. This forum has become a staple for me and like an extended family. Stay safe everyone and tell your family's you love them often. Thanks you all Donnie.

Thats terrible news. Im sorry to hear about your son Reese. I hope he makes a miraculous recovery. Im glad he was wearing his helmet. As a father as well i can't imagine. Not big on prayer, but you and he will be in our thoughts for sure.
