I’ve been so excited for Brooke and Gabe to have their wedding featured in Style Me Pretty – but the feature that went up today now has a deeper significance in that Gabe is very lucky to be alive today….
“On June 7, 2014 Gabe was critically injured while on the job. He was brought UMASS trauma unit with injuries including, broken collar bone, broken ribs, punctured lungs, concussion, broken neck, and broken back in two places. Thankfully there was no serious brain trauma!! Due to his injuries he had surgery on June 8,2014 for 9 hours and had a 9inch rod and 12 screws put in to stabilize his back. His spinal cord was confirmed to be severed, therefore he is paralyzed from the waist down. He will need extensive rehabilitation at an acute spinal cord injury facility. He’s recovering remarkably well considering his injuries and still has a great sense of humor!!”
