More details/updates.

The event happened at the Westmoreland Fair this morning. Matt and Jesse both got down showing their horses and Jesse stooped down to talk to my uncle..... Matt's horse bumped something, rared up, and kicked Jesse's head throwing him into my uncle's lap. My uncle basically thought that Jesse died in his arms. 30 seconds later Jesse woke up screaming. They took him by ambulance a short distance where they had Life Flight land. They took him directly to Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh. He is now out of surgery. They have reconstructed his skull as it was completely crushed. He has some type of a plastic plate in his skull now. They have him in an induced comma... they need to monitor the pressure in his head before they bring him out of that. It is looking better but it is a SERIOUS head injury so no one knows for sure. It is not yet known if there is any brain damage. Please continue to keep him in your prayers. I am very glad I was able to get the night off a pizza hut... after ALOT of effort. I need this night.... if they start letting people see him I'll be in Pittsburgh as quick as you can imagine.

Thank you everyone for your prayers! ... And for your continued prayers!
