the visit  
we went to see alex today.

i couldn't recognise him. his head was so swollen... it was unbelieveable. we overheard the doctor telling his family about the operations they have had to perform on him. apparently, there was so much pressure in his head before the first operation, he would have died if they didn't operate. normal pressure is about 15. alex's was over 100. hence, the first operation was rather... explosive. the first operation had a lot of repercussions but it couldn't have been helped. the main objective then was to save his life. problems were bound to arise from such a dangerous situation and its only solution.

the doctor also said that the most important thing for alex to do now is to survive this week. he has multiple internal injuries which cannot be seen. there are many things which may cause his death anytime now, not just his head injury.

and if he does survive this week, there is the question of whether he would ever wake up.

if he does wake up, he would never be 100% alex as we know him.

those were the doctor's words.

it was a sad reunion for the bunch of us. to come together again in such a dark situation after bounding off in different directions was rather surreal. i wondered if alex had been happy the last coupla years. i wondered when he would smile again.

babe- thats so awful.

remember my friend Peta and her accident? well her prognosis was much the same as Alex's, but she is now living a normal adventurous life again.

sending you hugs and much strength

i don't know what else to do.. sigh. he has been quite happy for the last few years, always doing things he wants to do and hanging out with friends. the only lil' negative stuff was prob the loneliness in his prev. relationship.

that's great to know... it seems too cruel to take it all away from him right when things are going so well for him.

i really really hope he'll recover and resume his happy life.. some cab drivers are just plain awful.

*big hug*

do you believe in karma? :) i wonder what's the next big bad thing to happen to you for saying fuckwit things like that. perhaps a drunk driver to ram you into a lamp post? or a falling flower pot on your head? maybe a freak accident involving heavy metal and powerful impact against vulnerable human flesh?

whatever it is, i'm sure it will be interesting. it's too bad none of us here will ever hear about it since you're such a brave person to leave brilliant anonymous comments. good luck! :)

your command of the english language is appalling.
i bet you are a jobless loser who doesn't even drive, let alone own a car.
i don't even think you have any male-hood for girls to suck on.
go die a horrible death, LOSER!

you're a COWARD
at least Alex would've dared to LEAVE HIS NAME on a post like that!

how is he at the moment?
JV: downdrag0nette on April 19th, 2007 05:56 pm (UTC)
still in critical condition... not worse but not better either. he had to have a third operation due to throat infection from having a tube down his throat 24/7...

am glad the important witness has stepped forward...

good to hear abt the witness coming forward..
