    thank you so much for the update.  very good news that your sister doesn't have to worry about the 7-days' limitation on hospital care.  being with her other children is no doubt a source of strength she needs now more than ever.  

    i don't know if they're talking in terms of Tony never walking again because of the brain injury, or there are other causes, i.e. spinal cord.  

    this has to be agony for your sister, and your entire family.  no parent should ever have to be asked to make that decision.  prayers and strength to all of you.

      I argued with my sister this morning on the same topic you mention in your comment -- about Tony never walking again because of the brain injury. I brought up the spinal cord which I have read has direct connection to someone getting paralyzed as a result of a freak accident such as Tony`s.

      I cannot comprehend how he landed on his head if he fell from several steps high, resulting is such tragic consequences.

      Yes, as I wrote this morning. My sister has nothing to worry about Tony being discharged anytime soon. He will be able to remain receiving very good attention medical wise as long as it takes.

      Thank you Avila

        you, too, have had a horrible, stressful experience, and i know you're hurting for your sister.  i'm still hoping there may be a change in Tony's condition.  i wish you all the best.

          you`ve done Avila in the sense of uplifting my spirit. It is true that I am pretty stressed out these last couple of days.

          But I`m good Avila don`t worry about me. I am writing this because I try to be as polite as possible with those who make comments to my diary and not appear to ignore any. In other words I like to have the last say.

          You too take good care Avila.
