    I did'nt know were to post this so if you(mods) want to move it to the off topic forum then do.Anyways on march 26 my aunt and my little cousin that live in indiana was in a horrible car accident with their SUV going completly under a semi sending both to the hospital severely hurt.Both are in bad shape still yet and have ALONG ways to go b/c of all the broken bones and stuff.

    Where I live so far away from them plus they have alot more family that live in West Virginia so they made a site for them to write and give us updates about their conditions and I just found out that my little cousin Jacab got a surprise visit from a COWBOY PLAYER today.

    Jacob is much more alert today! The Drs finally witnessed Jacob lift his hand on command and follow an object with his eyes. This is good because now he will have more likely of a chance to get into a rehab facility. Jacob is being moved to the Pediatrics unit tomorrow, the Drs have finally for the first time told he that Jacob is in stable condition. Your prayers are working, we see proof of it everyday! Dr Zucker came to look at Jacobs hand. He feels it will be a couple of weeks yet before they can do the skin grafts so Jacob is going to stay here until then. We feel this will give him more time to rest and become more alert so that when he gets eveluated for rehab he will be able to respond more.


    So Jacob had a coupe of visitors today. The first, was Tony Romo! The quarterback from the Dallas Cowboys. How awesome is that? He took time out of his day to visit with sick kids, now thats what I consider a role model! Thank you Tony! The second visitor was a theraputic St Bernard named Duke. Jacob, with the help of his mother, got to pet Duke which seemed to get a little reaction out of Jacob.

    Romo is a miracle..and I am by no means making light of this situation..That is just how highly I think of him. The Dallas Cowboys are lucky to have a player like him to be the face of the team

    Hope your family members all fully recover.

    Tony is a class act. We have had a few reports of him doing random nice things for people. This one tops the charts.

    Heres a little more about Romo's visit at the hospital.

    http://www.fox28.com/Global/story.asp?S=12394633&utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
    He was in town to speak at the College Football Hall of Fame, but the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys extended his stay to cheer up some sick kids.

    Tony Romo visited with pediatric patients at Memorial Hospital after the luncheon.

    He also signed autographs, met with fans and posed for pictures there.

    Key Bank sponsored the luncheon that happened earlier in the day and said the hospital visit was all Romo's idea.

    Randy Foster, District President of Key Bank says, "It's really cool. He's the first one really in the luncheon series that has asked to go to the hospital to see some kids."

    Tony Romo, Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys says, "I've been blessed to be healthy and in a situation I'm lucky enough to be in and the kids sometimes got, you know, something they have to overcome or, in some cases, a tough draw. And you know, you just let them know that it's part of life but there's still plenty of things you can be happy with."

    Romo says he tells the kids to have faith and just tries to make them smile... and there were plenty of smiles.
