I just heard they have life flighted my nephew from a car accident. My brother is trying to find out more from my-ex-sister-in-law. Alex is just 18. Please keep him in your thoughts. Thanks.

Good thoughts go out to your nephew, Aditu. I remember getting the news that my cousin had been in a car accident, just as I was going to get my knee MRI'd...she died a few days later. [Frown] I hope your nephew has better luck...

I heard from my brother. The doctors in SF did a bunch of surgery. My nephew lost part of his liver and has broken his back in three places. However the good news is that they don't think that his spinal nerves are hurt. It will be a long recovery, but hopefully it will be a full recovery. Thank you for your thoughts.

Glad to hear that! It could have been so much worse.

Don't worry about his liver. Livers grow back. My sister had a lobe of hers taken in her first round with adrenal cancer and hasn't had any problems.

Thanks everyone. He goes for more surgery today. They are putting some kind of "cage" around a crushed part of his spine. It will give him permanent support in that area.

I'm hoping he and my brother will take this as an opportunity to build a relationship as he recovers.
