I am torn about going to see my cousin in the hospital. We are pretty close - he is the same age as my brother and lived 2 minutes away growing up, so he is pretty much my "other brother." Yesterday morning he was working as a roofer on a high school gym and fell through the skylight onto the gym floor 30 ft below. They flew him to a hospital 90 minutes away from home (and I am 90 minutes in the other direction, but the hospital is in the town where I used to live.) He is in the ICU in critical condition. Major concussion, punctured lung, lacerated kidney, removed his spleen, fractured his pelvis, collarbone, ribs, and hip. His neurological responses are very strong and his spine looks good - he has complete feeling. He is sedated because he keeps trying to pull his tubes out. He is 26. I want to go because I feel this need to "help" but what can I really do? I guess the only thing I can offer is that I know the area better than the rest of the family, in case anyone needs anything. And hugs. I have the GRE on Monday and work Tuesday, so if I don't go today or tomorrow, I won't be able to go until Wednesday. Not sure what to do.
