My Husband was in a Serious Accident

Please be in prayer for my husband. He was in a serious accident last night. The humvee he was a passenger in flipped and rolled. Chad's clavicle bone (shoulder) is broken. His sternum is fractured, and they believe his 8th and 11th vertabrae's are fractured. He's in a great deal of pain. He is scheduled for surgery tomorrow to place a rod in his shoulder. He's supposed to have a MRI on his back and hopefully they'll be able to determine if the vertabrae's are indeed fractured or not. I am not sure what the plan is for her sternum. He was out in the field, which is a little over an hour away from the Army post we're stationed at, so he's at a hospital a little over an hour away. Not sure how long they expect he'll have to stay. If it's longer than a week, I'm going to request that he be moved to our local hospital.

I will do my best to update on here when I can. Thank you ahead of time for any and all prayers.

The soldier driving (and only other one in the humvee) as far as we know has a concusion. He was sent to a different hospital that deals with head trauma's. Please be in prayer for him as well.
