Follow the lights to the city.

- Thanks everybody that has talked to me everyday to make sure I was still doing okay. I didn't really want to give anybody an update because I didn't think people cared, but it turns out people do! But if you don't care just ignore this.
So my mom convinced me to go see my dad so yesterday we drove an hour away to the hospital to see him. I was scared because the last time I talked to my dad I was screaming through my yard "I hope you die." So obviously we weren't on the best terms. But my mom just thought it was for the best.
So we got there and I was really nervous because I had no clue what to expect.
He's still in the ICU and still in a medically induced coma. He has machines attached all over him and he's super swollen. He has a fever too so they are trying to cool him off. He moves around sometimes which was kind of scary, but I got use to it. He coughs sometimes too, which is good because it means he can feel all the tubes down his throat.
His whole brain shifted 5 cm but it's only down to 2 now. The bleeding in his brain hasn't gotten any worse, but not any better either. He has 2 broken vertebrae, but they think a neck brace will fix it.
I'm so happy I went. All my bad thoughts are behind me and all I want for him to do is to get better because I miss my dad. I don't care about anything that happened in the past I just want my dad back.
I'm going again tomorrow to see him because I really miss him and I just want to be with him.
Thanks again to everybody that keeps checking up on me. You mean the world to me.
Yeah. It is kind of weird how Seal and I have similar stories. I think my dad's accident happened maybe a day before or so. I got online and saw Seal's blog and thought it was really weird. Best of luck to your dad too Seal and if you need anybody to talk to..I know what you're going through.
