Thank you for all your prayers. His surgery went well. I got to spend about 4 hours with him. They let him sit up and watch a movie. He was so mad that I wouldn’t hug him. Lol. His bed alarm kept going off. Lol.
I left so he would quit fussing over his hug. Mama gave him forehead kisses!!!
I’ll keep posting. It surely helps. Well now he’s 3 days sober and said he has a head start on getting it out of his system.
MissLuLu,I am sending you love and prayers. A broken neck sounds terrifying but it is not always as bad as it seems. My brother broke a vertebra in his spine in a motorcycle accident and made a full recovery. Also, my elderly uncle broke his neck in a fall before Christmas and it took a while but he is well now. There’s lots of room to be hopeful. You and your son have my prayers xxx
Is your son ok?JMom. I am astonished that this has happened and that this could so easily happened with horsing around. I am so sorry this is made even harder by Coronavirus. Thank goodness he was moved to a Trauma Center and that they are seeking appropriate intervention and care. I can't tell you how I wish you weren't in this situation. My son was hospitalized for a Traumatic Brain Injury (Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)) and transferred to a trauma center. All I could do was scream.
I am reading and re-reading MissLulu's post above, which is giving me heart. I am praying for you and for your son and I will continue.
Thank you Ester, so sweet of you to jump back on for me :0)Dear JMom, I specially logged in again just now in order to write to you (I haven't been logged in for quite a few months). I read your post and I understand your worry. My very best friend who is my age (I am 75 now) broke her neck about 12 years ago. It was because of whiplash in a car accident. She was operated on, and her head was in a sort of cage for quite a few weeks, but today she is fine. I think moving her head to one side is slightly limited, but other than that she is fine. And that was in her 60s. So since your son is a young man I presume his chances of recovery are higher, and I just wanted you to know that it IS possible to recover from a broken neck, and I hope the doctors where he is being treated will be able to do for him what was done for my friend.
Please let us know how things progress. I pray that he will recover.
