On February 11th Victor was in a skateboarding accident and sustained serious head injuries. He is in ICU at St. Joseph Hospital in Tacoma. The doctors’ emphasis at this point is to relieve the pressure in his skull. The injuries are causing his brain to swell so they have removed a section of the skull to allow this to happen without causing damage. With the bandages on his head, he looks a little like this photo. He is in an induced a coma to keep him still and to minimize brain activity while he heals and rests. We expect the swelling to begin to subside in the next 24 hours or so.
Thank you to all the family and friends who have expressed love and concern for Victor and for the many offers of tangible support. Victor is being well cared for and the family’s needs are taken care of for now. The medical staff tells us that “miracles happen every day” and we are praying for one for Victor. He is young, strong, and stubborn – all qualities we believe will work in his favor.
Please use this blog to post your good wishes for Victor. We treasure your friendship and continued prayers as he recovers.
