hello all just an update finally that's real and not some stupid ass reporter getting it wrong. the conditions of the climber are this broken ankle, broken left scalpia (shoulder ) multiple like lots of them broken ribs, had two collapse lungs , possible one punctured lungs, multiple contusions, severe concusion and also a diffusion of the brain. Both chest tubes removed on Saturday, breathing on own, starting to respond better from head injury, starting to talk and respond, ( keeps asking for girlfriend to get him out and wants to start walking around ) and is recovering from pneumonia. He is scheduled for surgery today to fix the shoulder and at time will decide if the ribs will be fixed or not, possible plate for them cause they are broken off / at the spine from the landing. overall not out of the woods yet any surgery can kill him, but along way ahead of last weekend. no matter what hes got a long long road ahead of him. doctors are cautiously optimistic about his recovery but do expect him to survive at the moment.. oh and a big big thank you to all that helped again. cant say that enough. and his condition was never upgraded at all , ...... the reporter who printed that he was upgraded I think had his head up his ....... needed to make it up for a deadline probably. will post more when the time is right .
