Tanner's Story:

Carol, Travis, and Tanner Underwood were in a serious car accident on I-35 Friday, March 23, 2012.  Carol and Travis had minor cuts and bruises, but Tanner was flown to Scott and White in Temple to treat head injuries.  He was sedated in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, where doctors monitored the swelling in his brain and brain activity.  After several weeks Tanner began to experience partial consciousness, opening one eye and making a few gestures in response to commands.  He stabilized.
 
One month later Tanner was transferred to a Baylor-affiliated rehab in Dallas called Our Children's House where they specialize in treating pediatric victims of traumatic brain injury.  Rather than focus on rehab here, Tanner fought "storming."  When this was finally brought under control, Tanner faced many other medical obstacles.  At the end of six weeks, arrangements were made to move Tanner to Cook's Children's Hospital in Fort Worth.  Tanner began to improve during his time at Cooks.  He was more alert and responsive.  He even began to answer questions with signals from his eyes, hands and feet.  The Underwood family battled the demons of despair and anguish daily while constantly displaying their abiding faith in God. 
 
The Underwood's path is long, non-linear, and full of intimidating challenges but they still know joy and experience celebrations. Tanner is back in his house surrounded by the family and friends that love him.  There are miles left to go in this journey and the "Hope Crew" asks you to join us in daily prayer and in raising money to help fund Tanner's medical needs during his recovery.
