Brother in critical condition

Thu, Nov 26, 2009 at 7:00 AM By: Ferrettrix

Hey y'all. My older brother (22) was hit by a truck yesterday morning walking home from work. He's in really bad shape and may not make it. He's had spleen & part of large intestine removed, broken pelvis, hole in diaphragm, hole in his lung, broken arm, fractured ribs, bleeding spot on brain, still bleeding internally (may be kidneys), crushed artery or something in leg-they put in a graft of stint or w/e, no circulation in one leg-fixed it, surgery incision still open and packed, arm's not fixed yet-can't do it yet, ultrasound later today. Sitting in the hospital now-can't see him 'til noon. The truck crushed his Papa Roach Metamorphosis CD I got him at the Youngstown concert-guess he's been carrying it everywhere now that he's hooked on PR. I'll have to get him a new one. If he makes it he'll have to go to a rehab center for months to learn to walk again...that's about all I know right now. Happy Thanksgiving all, we'll be here at the hospital all day hoping for a miracle. Later.

    Thank you so much..every bit helps. They have to cut his legs open now b/c they're swelling so bad and the pressure will crush the veins and stuff. They've got a pressure monitor in his head now, and his blood pressure's down, so can't run needed catscan or ultrasound (have to be on side for this one), Can't see him 'til noon...we all just keep hoping and praying that something will start going right-he's still really unstable now. Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
