    I always seem to find my way back here when I have tragedy in my life, because I know I can always count on all of you for so much hope!!
    My daughters 18 year old boyfriend was in a car accident last Friday and remains in critical, but stable condition. They had to remove a blod clot from his brain, he has 3 fractured vertebrae in his neck and a broken arm. They have him in a medically indused coma and will start bringing him out of it in the next few days. The neuro surgeon is very hopefull from his progress that he will have a 90-100% change of full recovery :)

    My daughter has been by his side 24/7 and he squeezes her hand when she asks if he can hear her :) We are very hopefull, but all the prayers we can get are helpful.

    Thanks in advance. I know I can always count on my old pals here!!

    By the way, difficult child/easy child is still doing well :)

    Hi Karen. Prayers going up. I hope he does well as they bring him out of it. Sounds good that the neuro is so optomistic.

    Thanks everyone. I knew I could count on you guys. There hasn't been much change and my daughter is really feeling the strain of the unknown. I just talked to her and they are sending him for a cerebral angiogram. I'm assuming they are making sure there is nothing else going on before they close his skull back up.
    I hoping within the next few days they'll start taking him out of the coma because I know she will feel so much better once he's awake.

    I'll keep you guys posted.

    Oh, Karen, that's awful. So frightening.
    I am heartened by the neurosurgeon's hopeful statement, despite the blood clot and severity of the trauma.
    If he can feel your daughter squeeze his hand, then he's not paralyzed, right? Even with-the fractured cervical vertebrae?
    I'm sending healing wishes ...
