On January 21st two of my friends were out for a drive, and they failed to yield at a stop sign. They were both critically injured, and had many odds stacked against them. One friend M had two broken legs, a broken arm, a bump to the head, and a spinal injury, he has undergone 3 surgeries, and still has his jaw wired shut.
C had internal injuries, lung damage, liver damage, and kidney damage. He was given s 10% chance of living. My friends and I rode an emotional dollar coaster up and down all week. C passed away on January 28th, his liver had failed, so they turned off life support. He died 2 days after my birthday.
It has now been a month since the accident, and almost a month since C died. It has been hard to help M deal with the loss, he was driving the car. If I have learned anything, it's to tell your friends you love them, and let people know you care. If I had not been with my other friend I would have been with M and C, so that has been hitting me too.
I'm doing ok, the sadness just kinda comes and goes.
