Re: TAPS

Yes, TAPS, we are also glad, though the road to recovery from this type of injury is never short. He is a strong young fellow, indeed, and that's a blessing. Also, I agree about his twin, though I'm sure my daughter and SIL are dealing with that aspect for both boys. I, on the other hand, gave my daughter some alone time from the boys so we could chat and she could vent, expressing her concerns to me, as it was traumatic for her and SIL also. It was good for her to be able to do that, also. Thank you very much. Hope you are feeling better.

So glad he is out of the woods and is not giving up.  What a strong young fellow.  It must have been so traumatic for his twin.

Re: WileyJohn

Yes, he did acknowledge it by standing there sheepishly, my daughter said. No charges for that. The important thing is our guy's recovery. Still.... Rrhhh! Be well.

Re: Kabu

They are so precious and I would have kept him home longer also. Thank you for your prayers, and the other rider, well, what can I say. He did go to where S was pulled out from afterwards, acting sheepish, they say. I would probably have not been very polite to him. Thank you again, dear Kabu. I like your emoticon. tee hee.

Re: Nautikos - They're Out of the Water During Shark Sightings

It was both shocking and scary, and everyone was glad to hear the prognosis. Yes, there are sharks in these waters. Beaches are closed when there are shark sightings and they stay out of the water for sure. It's an example (one of the few) of a good use for drones: they could remotely patrol each area. I know they're used in other areas.

One day the beach was closed due to sharks, so it was a good opportunity for the boys to go out a fishing boat with their dad and do a little fishing. S caught - yes - a baby shark! He released it. A factor is that in El Nino and La Nina years the water here is warmer, and sharks and sting rays also (sharks like to eat them), are drawn closer in. Offshore there is a busy sea lane from both with military and private vessels. If, for example, a whale becomes injured by a ship and beaches and dies, the protocol is to tow it back out to sea. This creates chum, which attracts sharks, and essentially exacerbates a bad problem.

Re: Barry_Lee_Jones

Thanks, Barry! We are all very happy about that also.

Re: FSI

Yes, it's real scary. It's going to a challenge when he's healing up and can't do much, I think. Thank you.

Re: C_C_T

True enough, CC. It may come to that one day, and sooner rather than later. Yes, he was lucky in that it could have been a lot worse.

Re: Pat_B

Oh, you're welcome for the update. And yes, I agree; he doesn't realize he is a hero. Thank you so much, Pat! There still the road to recovery but he's a trooper, and yes, the brain function is what's important! Both he and to some degree, his twin, suffered a trauma but are able to deal with it well, it seems. Again, many thanks.

Re: shamasehar

Yes, it is. We'll keep hoping for a complete recovery. Thank you.

I am so happy that you received the good news...I pray for his continued improvement

oh dear they are so precious and no matter what I would be keeping him home from school a couple more days but prayers have been answered although that board rider....well I suppose he didn't mean to do harm.

What a scary accident that was, and it's a huge relief for everyone that your Grandson is making a full recovery! But I have also wondered about another issue - aren't there any sharks lurking in California waters?

I am glad to hear that S is going to pull through.

I am glad to read that S is expected to make a full recovery. I cannot imagine how scary those multiple skull fracturs are for everyone involved.

That is neat that your grandsons surf competitively.

Yes it seems some are not so aware of surfing rules. Eventually maybe a test will make sure that all observe them. Poor lad, but a lucky boy.

Kids like this are heroes in my book. Dealing with such trauma

and ready to get out there and resume where they left off. Thank heavens he's able to return to school and his brain circuits are functioning. And thank you for posting this bit of wonderful news! Hugs.

Re: Aba brother

Thank you, Aba! Yes, I worry, but I was like that with my own children so much that they just rolled their eyes at me and laughed eventually. We try to protect them, but we also have to allow them to become responsible, thinking, decision-making people, little by little.

I am sorry to hear what happened to you! My goodness! What a madman, indeed! Did they arrest him, or them? There really does need to be greater thought given to mental health services. It saddens me that so many here have closed due to budget cuts. Be well. And glad you weren't hurt worse!

Oh dear Presta

i am relieved to hear that S is all right and the neurosurgeon has permitted him to go to school. God is great and at such times one feels grateful! You can be a worrying grand mom but children do have a resilience of their own. We all pray that he is up and about soon, and get going to the sea after three months. 

Today, as I was coming to the university a madman arguing with another across the road suddenly picked up a stone and hurled it, just when I came down the overbridge and it hit my left window of the car. Luckily, I again escaped unhurt with minor cuts on my left hand fingsers with the rubble.
