Ree Drummond‘s husband Ladd and nephew Caleb are thankfully doing better following a serious accident on the ranch.
In early March, the two men had been putting out a wildfire when their trucks collided and both of them were seriously injured.
But while Caleb was taken away in an ambulance, Ladd refused medical attention and drove himself to the hospital in Pawhuska, Oklahoma.
Ree later shared that Caleb broke some ribs, had a pretty bad concussion, and endured a few other injuries. Ladd broke his neck in two places and had surgery to stabilize one of the fractures, while the other will mend over time with the help of a neck brace.
“Rather than wish the accident didn’t happen, I’m gonna live in a state of gratitude—not just for the guys being okay, but also for the love, kindness, and prayers of so many of you,” Ree told her readers at the time.
During a recent episode of #AskAlex, two of Ree’s kids, Alex and Todd, gave the world an update on Ladd and Caleb’s recovery process.
“A lot of people are asking how our dad is,” Alex said.
“He’s doing a lot better. He’s recovering and he’s even starting to get back into ranch work.”
She admitted that while his mobility is a little limited right now, but “he’s still able to hang.”
But how is Caleb doing?
“Caleb is doing good,” Todd said. “He’s pretty much all healed up and back to his normal life.”
