Support Tessie Odom Smith's Recovery (GoFundMe) - EMS Strong!

Yesterday, EMS in my hometown suffered a horrible tragedy.  While responding to an emergency call, two paramedics were hit head-on by a driver under the influence.  One paramedic survived with minor injuries, but Tessie suffered life-threatening injuries.  She suffered bilateral femur fractures, pelvis and ankle fractures and dislocations, and some extremely serious injuries. 

Right now she's in the surgical ICU, having already had 2 surgeries.  She's nearly left us several times, but her EMS brothers and sisters, and the doctors and nurses treating her have fought hard to keep her here.  And, as you can see from the picture above, God is obviously not ready to take Tessie yet.  I don't usually post things like this on my blog, but anyone in the first responder family knows that we are a close-knit group and take care of our own!  Please pray for Tessie, her family, her doctors and nurses, and her first responder family.  And, if you feel so inclined, consider helping out on her gofundme page...  Tessie Odom Smith's Recovery Fund
