D was a front seat passenger in a car with 3 other boys. All were drinking. The driver lost control and flipped the car. D was able to get out. The 2 in the back had to be cut out and the driver....well...he ran. He was later caught, treated and released from the hospital and arrested for all sorts of things to include DUI and being in this great country of ours illegally and he's only 18. D was taken to the local hospital and the 2 from the back seat were airlifted to another. Those boys, well I guess they are men, they're in their mid 20's, are still in critical condition with broken backs. OUCH! D has 2 fractured vertebrate in his neck, 2 broken ribs, a broken finger and a tube pumping blood from his lungs. BLAH! Thankfully the fractured vertebrate didn't do any damage to this spinal cord or he would really be screwed. His ribs will heal. He has a steel pin in his finger. And yesterday when I talked to mom she said they had pumped about a liter of blood from his lungs but it had slowed down significantly and they were hoping to have it removed today. He's still in ICU but only until another room is available.
He's one lucky kid. Well, a kid to me. He'll be 25 next month. His step dad told him that he's used up all of his 9 lives and he better be careful from now on. Lord, I hope this has knocked some sense into him. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.....as well as the other 2 thugs he was with.
Last but definitely not least....
AF is here and if everything goes according to plan we'll have a smiley face on the OPK mid next week and then...well...we all know what happens then. Swimmers will be swimming and hopefully things will be stickin'!
Wish us luck.....again. :o)
