The state trooper on the scene said that no one should have walked away. Cadyn, however, was intubated and sent to ICU, still unresponsive. The next several days were a roller coaster of emotions, punctuated by the news that Cadyn had sustained an injury called shear damage, or DAI (Diffuse Axonal Injury). When the neurologist delivered the diagnosis, he warned Nikki not to research it on the web, because the statistics are terrifying.

All we could do was pray in the name of Jesus and trust that His power is real.”
