My poor twin Benjamin out in Utah recently suffered a severe concussion from a basketball game. Unfortunately he didn't seek help from the doctor right away and continued on with (somewhat) normal life for a week after. 6 days later he passed out/blacked out, earned himself an ambulance ride as a result of a 911 call and landed himself in the ER with the diagnosis of a class 3 concussion. Pretty much the worst kind. He's now on complete bed rest and is out of work for at least three weeks. He's been living in a dark room with sun glasses and earmuffs to block out noise. Any stimuli causes him to become nauseous, dizzy and blackout. He's in bad shape and could certainly use all the prayers you can muster. Today was the first time he has personally communicated with us. Here is a snippet of his email: "Good news – I no longer have to wear sun glasses at all times of the day. Any kind of light was so painful – nauseating – and noise, oh, man. I’ve been wearing shooting range ear thingies to block out noise. Those are only on some of the time now." I couldn't help but laugh as I associated THIS picture of my Ben with my twin in Utah.
(guess their names aren't the only thing they had in common)
GET BETTER SOON BEN!
