Man Down

Here is what I know:
Tuesday morning driving from Lee Summit to Overland Park for work, a car on the shoulder suddenly pulled into traffic and BB hit them.
Then a large vehicle of some sort (SUV?) T-boned him.
The other drivers walked away. BB went to the emergency room with major head trauma and possible damage to his brain stem.
He is currently in the ICU in a medically induced coma.
I went and saw him today.
Not for very long but I went and talked to his family.
They are all trying to stay positive.
Its too early to let worry run the show.
Hes a pretty tough cat.
Its only been a few days.
Nothing to do but hurry up and wait.
The body will heal itself.
Think positive thoughts...

I'm praying for his recovery and feel terrible for his family. Keep us posted Z, esp if there's a fundraiser for him. It took me a minute to realize that he wasn't on a bike in the accident.

Nope he was driving not riding.
Thanks for your support.
He and his family have a long rode in front of them.
