The grandfather of four siblings from Texas who lost their two-month-old sister and both parents in a terrible car accident earlier this month said they had made some improvements, but it will be a long road to recovery. 19659002] Teresa Burrell, whose sister is the children's grandmother, said 8-year-old Angela Clemens has two broken legs and a brain injury while 5-year-old Zachary suffered a broken back and 4-year-old Wyatt also suffered from brain trauma and a series of strokes. The two-year-old brother of the siblings, Nicholas, had already been released from the hospital.
"One week ago we did not even know if Angela would wake up and we did not know what would happen to Wyatt," Burrell told Fox News.
She said that Angela went through a series of operations to place pins and rods in her two broken legs, which are poured from the hips to her feet, while Wyatt was paralyzed on his left side
"We just did not know what would be involved," Burrell said. "But in the last nine days we've seen so many wonders, Wyatt can now put his hands over his head, he can run, they have to keep him from running."
Burrell added that Angela, who has been around since Accident no longer spoke, now paragraphs reads aloud. She said that the two older siblings, reunited for the first time since the accident last week, are aware that their parents, Jim and Karissa, and their little sister Julieanna were killed in the accident.
"It's going to be a long road," Burrell said, adding that her sister would raise the four surviving siblings.
"We will hold these four children together," she said.
The accident occurred on April 7, when the family returned from a trip to the church. A driver of a Tahoe, whom Burrell had identified as a mother of two, allegedly lost control of her vehicle, drove into oncoming traffic and struck Clemens & # 39; Suburban Head. Burrell said Jim, Karissa and Julieanna were killed instantly.
She added that the family was overwhelmed by the support they received through prayer and fundraising efforts. Burrell also keeps fans up to date on a fundraising Facebook page. There she said that all three hospitalized children could spend time together this weekend.
"We feel this support and love and reach," Burrell said. "We were so humble and thankful for that and the prayers of others."
