ATTENTION EVERYONE!

John has been going through a very stressful, complicated and unexpected move. He was just settling into his new place when he had a slip and fall accident. He hit is head very hard. Being the typical guy, he didn't want to go to the doctor but fortunately, friends convinced him to call 911. It's good they did, because it turns out he did some real damage to himself. John has bleeding on the brain and presumably a concussion of some kind.

Right now he is in the ICU. At least some of his family members are with him. The report I just got is that he is stable, but that's all I know. Until I talk to John or his family, we will not release any info about where he is hospitalized, his specific condition or prognosis.

Please think good thoughts, send your prayers and good wishes, and watch this post for updates. Sunfire and I will add more when we know more.

UPDATE 6:00 P.M. PST: I spoke with John's brother a while ago. The prognosis as far as can be determined at this point is good. No serious damage, but full test results come back tomorrow. John is resting and seems to be doing a bit better. Keep those good thoughts, vibes and prayers coming, everybody! It means the world to John!!!

UPDATE 4:00 P.M. PST (Tuesday): Just got off the phone with John. His voice was strong, all things considered. He is still in the ICU, but he is doing much better. The doc's think he can leave tomorrow, but we won't know for sure till then. He wanted everybody to know how much he appreciates all the kind thoughts, comments and good wishes. Keep 'em coming! 🙂

It turns out he had a sort-of “out of body” experience in the hours after hitting his head, which explains (in part) why he didn't immediately get himself looked at. He was in quite an altered state of consciousness. Perhaps John will describe it in a post. Special thanks to Gwen for insisting he call 911 and get himself checked out.

I'll report more as it develops, but hopefully we'll all hear from the man himself in the next 24-48 hours.

 UPDATE 2:45 P.M. PST (Wednesday): Good news! John was released from the hospital today. He is back at his new place (scene of the accident, so to speak) and resting. He sounded good but very tired and a bit medicated. I encouraged him to take it easy.

The prognosis appears to be good. The injury was bad but not bad enough they had to crack his head open. It's amazing how much damage you can do to yourself when you really try. He is already talking about new projects, so that is a good sign.

John indicated he will try and get back in the swing of things tomorrow. He was scheduled for a radio appearance then, but we'll see if it comes off. It depends on how he feels in the morning. Once again, he expressed thanks to everybody for all the love and support, as do Sunfire and myself.

NOTE: I characterized John's accident as “slip and fall,” which isn't exactly right. What actually happened was more like “stumble and slam” or something like that. I'm sure John will  regale us with the details eventually.

Dear John, Sorry to hear about the stumble and slam ol’boy, but I’m especially relieved that your pal Gwen was robust enough in her actions to get you to the hospital to get the noggin examined. Of course, it;s not the obvious injuries that do the damage but the hidden complications that arise from them. I for one am sure glad that you got all your tests done and that your home and in recovery. Also hope that this accident hasn’t messed with your empath abilities and that you’ll be A.O.K. real soon. We need you and always will… BlueRay

Blue Ray,

Thanks! It wasn’t a stumble and slam, more like striding confidently forth into a narrow gap, being unable to see, then slamming skull into wall corner. Damage has definitely been taken, but I hope it’s short term!

Are you able to duct tape some bubble wrap or foam over the worst of the corners?? Sometimes proactive safety measures need to be taken that way, so if ye forget on a fast dash to the can in the middle of the night ye do not go and clock yerself so badly again! I do worry about ye, do take good care of yerself!

Chuck,

We run a light all night now, specifically to prevent a recurrence. I’m making a deliberate effort not to dash either direction, having determined that the layout made such a disaster likely from the start. The apparent broad diagonal is an illusion.

John, please take care of yourself – most people under stress are in a hurry especially during a move and resettling…I know, I am in it as well… we tend to pivot on our heals, while doing repetitive tasks, and thus lose our balance…and then anything can happen…my hubby bless his soul fell so hard into a wall, there is a permanent forehead dint – which we have left…even if you only have to make a semi circle – do not pivot, but put your feet together and move your whole body to target the position you want to be… Read more »

Joan,

I analyzed the path geometry and concluded that it was an accident waiting to occur. The safe route to my room diagonally is quite narrow, while the more conventional collection of perpendicular movements poses a serious trip hazard in its own right. For now, I’m slowing down and not, when I can remember to, leading with my head.
