The Accident

On 4/16/2010 at approximately 10 to 10:15pm, my Lenny was involved in a serious boating accident. There were 6 occupants of the boat, all were injured. Both Lenny and his best friend Jakie sustained life threatening injuries and were airlifted to trauma centers, Jakie to Las Vegas, Lenny to Phoenix.

I received a call at 1:45am informing me of the accident. I then spent the next 2 hours trying to find him and find out what happened. After calling two hospitals I found Jakie, and then called his mom and she took it from there. I still couldn't find Lenny, so I called the Lake Havasu Police and they got back to me in about a half an hour telling me he was in Phoenix and that the social worker would be calling me soon. Next came the longest 20 minutes of my life. Waiting to hear....

Lenny sustained the following injuries - Completely fractured face from the upper jaw to above the eyes, broken neck, broken ribs, collapsed lungs, and severely broken legs. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I spent the next several minutes rallying friends and getting to YiYi (that is what Lenny calls his sister). We all headed to Phoenix and below I will update you on his condition, how we are holding up, and have a way to communicate with you to keep you updated and be able to answer your questions and be able to get the support we so desperately need from all the wonderful people that love him.

Week Seven - Saturday and Sunday

Saturday was a glorious day, Jakie and his family came over. It was wonderful to see them. Jakie stayed until night time and it was miraculous to have them both sitting in the living room watching the Laker game like normal.
And as you can see the Laker Gnome is happily sitting there watching the game with them. It was wonderful.

Lenny gets very comfortable on the couch now and of course his dog never leaves his side now that he is home. 

We have had many visitors and it has been fantastic. We hope to see more of you soon.

This next week Lenny will be starting therapy at Casa Colina as soon as the insurance authorizes the number of days per week he can go. He will also see the Ophthalmologist and I need to make him an appointment to see the Ortho doctor and he needs to have blood drawn. Other than that same old stuff. LOL.


  1. What wonderful pictures. Lenny looks good. I am happy you are home.

    Love, Julia

  2. glad you are home
