Maylene and the Sons of Disaster Frontman Provides Update on Recovery After Horrific ATV Accident
In August, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster frontman Dallas Taylor was involved in a serious ATV accident that required him to be airlifted to a hospital and placed under intensive care. The injuries were numerous and extensive, but the singer has been gradually working his way back and has just provided an update on his condition.
The wreck left Taylor with broken bones, lacerations, head injuries, internal bleeding, vision issues and more. Unfortunately, many of these problems have persisted, which Taylor detailed in a Facebook post on the band's fan page (seen below). Capping things off on a positive note, the frontman expressed his gratitude towards the fans. The post reads in full:
Just a little update from me. I've been having major lower left side back pain which has pretty much left me in the bed for about 3 weeks. My jaw is still messed up, and my bladder doesn't work properly. My good eye is still not right with the no tears major dryness' and no tracking. My mouth is also continually major dry. I also have no feeling on the right side of my face due to the stroke and why I shaved (tired of having food in my beard haha). My new cool glasses haha are to protect me eye, and let me see a little better. I have also been going through some major unrelated life issues. I write all this to say I'm thankful for these times I'm able to focus on myself and becoming a better man. I believe that everything happens for a reason and what doesn't destroy you only makes you stronger. Know that all of you that are reading this and if your having a hard time try to be still and patient and use it as a time for God to strengthen you and make you stronger and let him keep your heart warm and happy. You are all beautiful people with a great purpose. Don't let your downfalls destroy you let them make you stronger and a better person in Jesus name.
“He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.”
