Some of you may be aware of the serious accident Peter Mix's son DeWalt was involved in last week in L.A. Some of this appeared on CoMando last week. I spoke to Peter today by phone, first time since the accident and got an update. Reason I hadn't posted anything earlier is that at the time we didn't know if his son would live or not, and I didn't ask for his permission to post anything. Not everyone wants personal family information on the web, but Peter said it was OK to communicate this.
In short, he was making a turn on his motorcycle and was hit by a DWI/DUI who is at fault and currently in jail.
Extensive injuries and he's being kept in medical coma while operations take place and his body heals. Liver and kidney damage, bruising to the heart, severely mangled leg that may not make it, major facial reconstruction needed although the surgeons think that'll be quite successful. More, I'm sure, but no need to go into this.
Peter flew out immediately and after a day there decided there was too much family present and too little they could do. He attended the NAMM show which ended yesterday, and upon return to Vermont he and Cynthia back fly back to L.A. the following day. They sounded utterly exhausted, mentally and physically.
Little more I can add. Luckily he's in a superb hospital with top-rate doctors and lots of family and friends (his mother lives there), and importantly, his employer has already indicated their full support to get him back on his feet. More as it becomes available.
