On Friday night, my cousin was ran over by a 4wd just kilometres from my house on the highway. He was on his brand new motor bike his Dad bought him. He was airlifted to John Hunter hospital in a critical condition. My cousin, my little champion boxer with the curly hair, was hit. I don't know what it is with my family. My other cousin was ran over last year and lost his leg. We're just having a bad run. He still isn't in a stable condition
The current list of injuries is multiple fractures to the lower leg, lots of damage to the knee, broken T3 (Mum said this a broken vertebrae or something in the leg?), multiple facial injuries including a broken eye socket, jaw, and cheek bone, broken collar bone, 1 of his kidneys is at risk of being removed, severe bruising around the spleen which they are investigating further, pneumo (sp?) thorax something or other (which is to due with his respitory system) and a whole lot of lacerations on his body.
The only thing we are grateful for at the moment, is that there appears to be no brain damage.
I don't think words can explain how I'm feeling. I'm so grateful it wasn't my brother, but I'm devastated it was my Sam. I'm angry that people are saying he was bashed up, he was hit by a God **** car. They're spreading rumours about him and I swear if I hear someone say it to me, I don't know how I'll control myself.
So I know you guys don't know me, or my cousin, but I'm a firm believer in positive thoughts so I'd really appreciate your support through this tough time. I really do appreciate this forum, you guys get me through some tough times.
