They are having to heavily sedate him because he is combative when he comes to. They are doing another CT scan today to see how things are brainwise. He is not able to take deep breaths so there is a worry that he will develop pneumonia. His girlfriend is staying by his side at all times which has provided some comfort for my parents.
My father lives in the mountains between Sacramento and Reno. He works in Reno and had to go there today to hand in a proposal for a very big job he's bidding on. My stepmother was worried about him yesterday and the fact that he wasn't going to get any sleep and be doing all that driving. My father also had a CT scan on Friday because something showed up on his lung in an x-ray... so we've all got that in the back of our minds too.
It is very hard to be states away. My Mom and Buck are also having to deal with that. I may be going out there but right now we are all waiting to see what is going to happen. There's not much point in going right now because he is in the hospital... unless he takes a bad turn. I've got to get Frappy settled at college. It is during times like this that we really regret moving away from our families... although, Trevor and my Dad would still be in another state. I just hate being so far away! I just want to see him... to hold his hand... to tell him how much I love him. To see my niece and hug her... to be with my Dad. Instead I am doing laundry, running errands and getting our ducks in a row to leave on Wednesday.
A very bizarre little bit of trivia... Trevor's accident was 15 years to the day after my jet ski accident in which I broke my back.
When Trevor was 10 years old he was hit by a car. He was on a field trip and the bus pulled over to the right side of the road and had the kids cross the street to go to a donut shop on the other side of the road. The kids were still on the crosswalk when Trevor decided to join them. He left the bus and was running to catch up. He was in front of the bus when the light turned green and a guy behind another car changed lanes and sped up... hitting my brother. It was pretty bad. He had an avulsed eye (came out of the socket), broken collar bone, broken leg and I think his arm was broken too. He was in a wheelchair for awhile. But, he survived... he even walked and ran long before they said he would be able to.
