Just a short note to the folks whose posts I comment on routinely. I’ve been commenting sort of here and there. I hope to be back soon but it could be longer. I’ll not go into much detail here. Shortly after 12mn of New Year’s eve my son was riding his ATV on gravel. He hit a rut and the vehicle rolled over with him underneath. Two men who were there lifted the ATV off him. He was in ICU for 21 days, the orthopedic unit for 4 days and he is now in rehab. He suffered a traumatic brain injury, four fractured ribs and, a fracture of T 11. He developed aspiration pneumonia and afib while in ICU.
I think there was an angel riding on his shoulder that night. He is making progress and his long term memory is pretty good. He has some speaking problems but with speech therapy he is progressing. Whether he returns to normal or near normal remains an unanswered question.
My son had/has many friends who have been very concerned and very kind. I’m grateful that so many folks from his past remembered my son as one who was always so nice and so friendly. He’s not been as successful as most of them but that did not seem to matter to all who have known Danny.
At some point in time I’ll write about the ordeal and how dangerous an ATV can be.
Thanks to Rod Sprange (http://reflectionsinpuddles.com/ (a good blogging friend) for the prayers and the prayer list. I’m very grateful.
