Trevor is now aware he's been in an accident and communicating a little. He is still very agitated... in fact, he indicated he wanted to smoke... ugh... NO! He's still in ICU!!! (He's probably going through nicotine withdrawl. When he was here for the girls' graduation in May he and my Dad had to go outside constantly to smoke). His CT scan showed that there was less bleeding in his brain yesterday and some of the swelling is going down. I think his lungs are the main concern now. He's having a hard time breathing and generating a lot of fluid.
We know more about the accident now. He was driving a friend's Ford Explorer on a curvy road. He went through a fence, down and embankment, probably air bourne, through another fence and another embankment, air bourne again and then hit a tree at which point he was ejected from the vehicle. Apparently, the Explorer is in pieces. I don't know what that means... if the bumpers fell off, the hood or some doors or what. I heard that and thought of it all disassembled but I don't know how that would be possible.
My Dad says everything is fine with him. Hopefully he's telling the truth.
Frappy and I are going to have a long and busy day! We've got a lot to get together before leaving tomorrow morning for her college.
Thank you so much for all of your prayers and good thoughts. I am doing fine and not freaked out anymore. As my Dad likes to say, "It is what it is." I don't know that I will go out to California to see my brother... it might be a wiser choice to send the money we would spend for me to go out there because we can't do both... I don't know. I pretty much feel like I am on stand by and waiting to see.
I may or may not post over the next couple of days. We've got two days of a pretty full schedule so I may be exhausted when I get back to the hotel. I'm exhausted already just thinking about it.
