Capital Ob/Gyn Associates is deeply saddened by the Capital Metro fatality and tragedy that touched our family Monday morning. The children involved in the accident, Corbin 5 and Ethan 8, are the sons of our medical assistant, Barbara. The two boys have sustained severe injuries and are receiving top-notch care. Unfortunately, the boys lost their father, Jeremy Barta, while driving to school when their car was hit by the metro liner.
I had a lovely visit with Barbara and the boys this morning at the hospital. Barbara, always the giver, is pushing aside her own grief to tend to the physical and emotional needs of her boys. Ethan is beginning to eat and requested a hot dog for lunch. He took my hand to lead me to see Corbin in the ICU. Ethan is so brave and loving. Corbin is still heavily sedated, but his team is very encouraged by his progress. He will need multiple cranio-facial reconstructive surgeries and physical rehabilitation to be able to eat and talk. The road to physical and emotional recovery will be long, but this wonderful family is taking it one step at a time.
