I just got a call from my mom with an update to her cousin's condition. (my second cousin? I never remember how that stuff works) Some background, on Saturday evening around 6:30 my cousin was swimming in Rogers Lake in Old Lyme, CT and was struck by a power boat. He was pulled out and Lifestarred to Hartford Hospital. The problem was not being struck by the boat, it was being unconscious under water for over five minutes.
After family members resisting the doctor's idea to pull the plug yesterday morning he opened his eyes yesterday and responded to simple commands like, "move your hand." So while he's not totally ok, hopefully it'll just be a matter of rehabilitation and he'll pull through.
