Hope they're doing as well as they can.

Yes, very sad to hear the news. Hope for a good recovery.

In the grand scheme of things they made out ok. She has a fractured C5, but otherwise just lots of bruises. He has multiple breaks in his wrist, shoulder area and face and only has two teeth left, which they will remove tomorrow. I don't know if the teeth broke and got swallowed or came out in their entirety. He was unconscious face down in the water briefly, but scans showed normal brain activity.

All day surgery yesterday on his arm. All day surgery tomorrow on his face. He is a mess, but neither have any internal organs damaged.

Let me know if you need any dental second opinions.

Oh my gosh, that's terrible. Glad they are on the road to recovery.

Thanks 'Bent. I was hoping to run their plan by you once they came up with one. His gums are far to swollen to do anything, and fixing the bones takes priority. It sounds like two months before they do anything with his teeth, though he has expressed a preference for implants over dentures.

Bash: it is terrible, I'll tell you about it when I see you.
