As many of you know Corbin was involved in a serious car accident on the Fourth of July. Corbin and his friends were planning a fun day of tubing down the river. The details of the crash are all hear say to us at this point. Corbin was rushed to concord hospital where it took a while to stabilize him and then he was rushed into surgery. We were told he had a severe head trauma and bleeding in his abdomen. They were going to operate but couldn’t give me many answers because they had to open him up to find out the extent of his injuries. When they came out of the OR they basically told us it was catastrophic and he would not recover because of the brain injury. Shortly after a doctor came out and said a few things had changed. They were seeing some positive signs of brain activity. Luckily Corbin has a family member (Paul Raymond) who has been our and Corbin’s life saver. He is in the medical field and suggest we get him flown to Boston Children’s Hospital because it is a level 1 trauma hospital and would be best equipped to treat Corbin. Within an hour the helicopter was there and he was airlifted to Boston where he immediately underwent two more surgeries.
As of now he’s touch and go. They still don’t know the extent of his injuries. They have been doing everything they can to keep him stable and right now the main goal is to monitor his brain for swelling because the first 48-72hrs are most crucial.
Corbin is sedated and has had his family by his side every second they have allowed us to be here. We appreciate everyone’s thoughts, prayers and kind words for Corbin.
We can’t express enough thanks for everything Boston Children’s Hospital has done for him and is continuing to do for him. It’s really unbelievable and we know he’s in the best hands here. It’s just hour to hour here and we will try to keep posting when we have news.
The last thing I really wanted to say is that these kids involved were all young and anyone of them could have been driving. We know all these kids and care deeply about all of them. This is a time to pull together because all of our families are struggling in different ways. The last thing I want to hear is that anyone is blaming anyone or anyone is getting bullied or blamed. We don’t feel this way AT ALL and don’t believe anyone else should. We also need to remember that these kids involved were some of Corbin’s best friends and he would have no respect for anyone treating his friends badly.
