A Very Tragic Situation For My Family

Hello, everyone who has been following my blog. I've been mia and am taking a moment to let you all know why. My husband, who is a pilot for Quest Diagnostics, has been involved in a major plane accident. He was flying Thursday night, moving medical specimens for the company, and the plane he was in crashed at Teterboro airport. He was not flying the plane. We are not sure what happened exactly, to cause the crash. My husband is in critical condition with burns over 40% of his body. He is sedated and can't hear me an will be undergoing operations several times a week for the next 6 weeks or so. Many of you have written that you enjoy my blog, and I hope to be back blogging as soon as he is on his way to recovery. For more information on the accident you can google George Maddox plane crash and you will see many stories on it. 
Thanks to all of you who have been reading my posts, and remember that you can follow your lap band diet if you stay focused and follow your doc's advice. Lisa Maddox View blog reactions

Oh, I am so sad to hear this. You must be sick with worry. I was a burn ICU nurse for several years, and I have an idea of what you face in the coming days and weeks and months. I hope that you are doing okay and getting enough rest. And of course I hope your husband is getting better. You and your family are in my thoughts. (hugs) Gwen

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. But I am having surgery on Sept 2nd and I had to share a chuckle with you and after hearing your sad news I thought you could use it. You think it's gross watching those guys eat? My husband and I have dinner with one every Thurs night! He is an amazing guy and is currently #9 in the world. Hall Hunt but if anything will make you slow down and chew it is watching him train!
