Lubbock, Texas – A Lubbock AeroCare flight paramedic was seriously injured in a car accident on Dec. 2, his relatives told KLBK News on Monday.
Spencer Henry was on his way to work when he got a call about a crash on 1585 and 62/82 south of Wolfforth.
Now, on day 11 in the hospital, his wife Michelle said Spencer is recovering from a severe traumatic brain injury in addition to his spinal cord injury.
“Spencer and his family will need all the help they can get. Financially though; Chase Harrison, Spencer’s friend and colleague at AeroCare said:
Spencer also has two children.
“He seems to take care of his family, friends, [and] colleagues,” Harrison shared. “Before he was himself, he usually took care of other people. “
His loved ones raved about his service in the community.
“I think a lot of people might say that if they were in Spencer’s care, they’d remember it just because of his caring attitude,” Harrison began. “We would get into trouble when we were flying in a helicopter. He was great in those situations, and he always cared for his patients first.”
According to Michele, when asked about his father, Spencer’s 9-year-old son Parker has been telling people that his dad is “calming and recovering,” which has become the family’s new motto during this time.
In a statement to KLBK News, Michelle Henry said:
“Our family is so grateful and grateful for the continued support of our community, friends and family. Thank you for loving us and being there for us in our time of need. We are so grateful for the excellent care Spencer continues to receive at UMC. A long way. Not only has he helped so many people in his professional, business and personal life, it has been so rewarding to see that return. Thank you. Henry’s.”
