Hello everyone, Jacob wanted me to give you guys an update. He has suffered a concussion, a mild pneumothorax in his left lung, split open his chin pretty good, a fractured Adam's apple, bruised vocal chords and a blood clot in his throat, and to end the list a broken right humerus. He had a successful surgery yesterday morning where they plated his arm. Thank you so much for all the love and support, he's having a difficult time talking so he wanted to let everyone know if you have called or text he will get back to you when he's feeling a bit better. Hopefully be out of the hospital within a couple days. -Nicole
