Update on Jessica Hulcy

by | News | 8 comments

This just sent to me:

“Jessica’s Ford Explorer was broadsided in Melissa, TX about 11:30 on Monday morning. We think she was hit by a volunteer fire truck responding to an accident. After a 25 minute extrication process she was Life Flighted as a level 1 (the most severe) trauma case to Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

She is still in critical condition. Here is what we know so far:

1. She is still unconscious but is moving all four limbs and attempting
to pull the tubes out of her throat which is encouraging to the doctors.

2. Major Lung trauma, punctures to both lungs. Both were collapsed. One
is now working well and they are still draining the other. Doctors are
checking for possible damage to wind pipe and trachea.

3. Head trauma. Medium amounts of blood on the brain. Closely monitoring
this to see if it improves. Surgery not necessary now, but possible to come.

4. As of now multiple broken ribs on both sides, broken left wrist,
broken left arm in 2 places. Will require surgery. Possible broken left
leg and right wrist. She has undergone 4 hrs of X-rays, over 1000 X-rays
taken so far. They are working the broken bones in the order of most
life threatening so there is a possibility of more discovery of broken

Update: There is no change in Jessica’s status since the report last
night. The doctors are waiting for her to wake up. Wade asks that we
pray for her mental/brain status.”
