Title: Concerning Chaos (aka) Ash
Post by: mare on February 21, 2007, 09:37:25 PM
We got an email from Ash's sister Jenny today saying that he was involved in an accident at his volunteer job. He was critically injured protecting someone else. He had emergency surgery to remove pressure from his brain and he was scheduled for further surgery this afternoon. I'm not sure how that went, I just got this email a few minutes ago.  He is still unconscious but the post op scans look promising so I think we all need to send him good vibes and our thoughts and prayers.

Once I find out more I will let you all know!

We love you Ash! Get better!

And our thoughts are with you as well Jenny!

If you want to leave a message for Chaos do so here, i'm sure he'd love to see these once he's awake and back on his feet.


*update on 2/22*

I have a small but very good update.
 
 Surgeries went well yesterday. Ash came through each with no unexpected
 complications. We believe there will likely need to be some further
 surgery to repair his knee but as that is not critical it will wait until
 he is stronger.
 
 He woke up briefly this morning. He was very confused and did not speak,
 but he definitely recognized us, so that is a very good sign. His
 condition has been upgraded from critical, and we're still quite
 optimistic for a full recovery from the head injury.

^ that was from Jenny  :)

I'll continue to update the first post as I find out more.

*another update as of 2/24*

My brother is doing very well and is progressing a lot faster than what
 the doctors outlined for us with what to expect. He has been awake a bit
 more today, and is becoming more alert each time he wakes. He has already
 expressed a lot of displeasure about not being able to get out of bed at
 all, even though he only has been awake for a few minutes at a time and
 has trouble even sitting up. He has also asked that they stop his pain
 medications, but fortuately his doctor talked him out of that for the time
being. They did assure him that this afternoon they would switch him over
to a non-sedative pain medication though. He has indicated that he does
 remember what happened, but has not spoken about it yet and we're not
 supposed to tell him anything that he doesn't remember on his own.
 
 And he's already asked me to bring him his laptop when I go back tonight.
 I'm not convinced he's up to actually using it as anything other than as a
 DVD player, but I'm betting that he at least tries to get online before
 the weekend is out.
 
 So thanks to everyone for their well wishes and prayers, I'm sure Ash will
 thank you himself as soon as he's well enough (and probably before that,
 too).
 
 Jenny
 
 ;D

YAY Chaos lol and if you're reading this go back to sleep!  ;)

Dear Ash,

I'll definitely keep you in my prayers, and I hope you have a speedy recovery. I think I'd have to agree with Rose about how you being injured while helping others is honorable. *Sends loads of good get-well-soon vibes your way*

Thank you to Jenny for letting us know what's going on, and your family's certainly in those aforementioned prayers, too!

Is it strange how you can be so concerned for someone you've never met? Ash, you mean a lot to all of us and you and your family are in our prayers. Get well soon! We love you! And God Bless and thank you Jenny. That was very thoughtful of you.

Oh wow... That's really scary! I'll be keepin him in my thoughts and prayers. I have to agree that risking his own saftey to protect someone else is very admirable, yet it seems very "Ash." I hope him a speedy recovery!

I have faith that he'll pull through okay, though I'm sure he'll probably need plenty of recovery time...I guess we'll all have to start writing more so he has things to read while he's getting better :P

Thanks again Mare for taking care of all this, I'm sure your shoulders are sore from carrying me.

THank you everyone for your concern and well wishes (and squishy hugs!) during my recovery. It sounds like I'm not going anywhere for a while, though, so like Julilly suggested, keep those fics coming!

And yes, Julie, I'm going back to sleep now.  :)

Thanks again!

Thanks. And yes, it helps to know the hospital IT guys (my day job :D ). Actually all the hospitals I do tech support for have the wi-fi for guests now. Pretty cool. Unfortunately that's been down most of the week due to ice and snow storms. Hospital's been on generator power so all non-essentials (including the guest wi-fi) were out. Damn. Really boring week here. Fortunately finally all power is restored.

Sounds like I should be out of here in a few more days. Just have to jump through a few more hoops (not literally :P ) and my housemates have to do some rearranging and redesigning to get my home set up for my temporary wheels.

Anyhoo, thanks again to everyone for sending me the well wishes, emails, e-cards, and general good vibes.

it's great to hear from you again Ash! on the bright side, you get ppl to wheel you around! although that's probably not a good idea if you tend to get dizzy easily :p
