I dont know how many of you guys remember me posting about this boy when it happened but I will quickly repeat myself. R is about 26 or 27 years old. He has grown up on the same street as my kids their entire lives and may be somehow related in some distant way. R and Cory consider themselves to be cousins...at least that is how they present themselves to everyone. Well...I guess it must have been late last summer R was drinking at the river and dove into the river and hit his head on a tree trunk and broke his neck. He is now paralyzed from just below the neck down. He has partial use of his arms but not full use. He does feel pain...lots of it. This kid...and I still think of him as a kid...is in agony. He is in a rehab right now and called today telling Cory how he doesnt want to live anymore. I cant blame him. Its killing Cory. Cory cant go to him because of his house arrest. The docs say R may live for maybe 4 more years. 4 painful years. Cory is in agony hearing his best friend crying on the phone. Cory starts crying. (This is where the anti-social thing doest fit) There really isnt anything anyone can do. This kid was a huge difficult child before this all happened. He would have continued to be one if it hadnt happened. Natural consequences. They bite. But could you guys just keep a good thought that the best thing that could happen, does happen for both R and Cory? In a perfect world the pain would go away and they would both be fixed...but that aint gonna happen.
