For the Benefit of Mr. Glasse

April 8, 2005, Music

The Glasse family were in a wreck Thanksgiving weekend – someone crashed into them going 40 mph. Paul absorbed most of the impact. Their car was totaled. His wife, Nine, had to have an emergency C-section and is recovering from a fractured pelvis. The baby was two months early and in the neonatal unit at Brackenridge for several weeks. Their 3-year-old sustained a fractured wrist. Paul had multiple fractures of nearly all his ribs, both lungs were punctured, an artery was severed, and he had a broken pelvis, broken clavicle, broken wrist, etc. If the accident hadn't happened within blocks of Brackenridge Hospital, Paul would not have survived. Remarkably, they'll all be fine, and Paul recently returned to work and to playing the mandolin. Even though they have insurance, their medical bills are astronomical.
