Transcription

911: 911 Emergency, what are you reporting? Female Voice: I just witnessed a huge accident. Male Voice: Severe rollover. Male Voice: Youíve got two patients. The fatherís pinned in the vehicle. Male Voice: The driver doesnít look like theyíre moving, and thereís a kid on the ground. Dr. Frank Kennedy, Surgeon: ...motor vehicle accident, had a, has a massive scalp avulsion. Ashley, RN: There was also a child involved. Male Paramedic: Whatís your name? Kevin: (unintelligible) Ashley, RN: He says that he canít feel the left side of his body and no movement in the left lower extremity. Female Paramedic: Kevin, the driver of the truck. Unknown why they rolled over. Kevin: (Groan) Trauma RN: One, two, three... Trauma RN: Kevin, you have a son Luke? Kevin: Heís my man. Trauma RN: He is your man. And Childrenís Hospital just called; they said heís doing great. Kelly, Kevin's Wife: I got a phone call. And she said, "I just want to tell you first that your son is okay, but heís here with us, heís been admitted today." And of course I started crying. And, um... Officer Mitchel Sanchez, CHP: The vehicle went across the other lane of traffic and up onto the center median, the raised center median, travelled on the center median. John: That threw the truck in the air. And then once, as it came back to the freeway it started rolling. Luke, Kevin's Son: (Imitates tire failure sound) And then the truck just flipped. 911: Okay, weíre on the way. Kristine, Good Samaritan: My boyfriend parked and I started sprinting towards the accident. Cars scattered everywhere. Dust flying around. Saw Kevin hanging out the door. His head was gashed open. So I took off my shirt and wrapped it around his head and applied pressure. Just the words he kept repeating were, "Get me out, get me out, get me out." And then when he asked if he was going to die, it broke my heart. Dr. Joe Bellezzo, ER physician: He completely degloved the top of his scalp. Kelly, RN: Itís just a huge layer thatís ripped back, revealing what was underneath, which is essentially skull. Dr. Kennedy: If you have a massive injury to the scalp then thereís a chance of massive bleeding. Keep track of how much bleeding is going on. Ashley, RN: Blood pressure, 144 over 95. Dr. Bellezzo: So move your left hand, will you? Squeeze my fingers, will you? On your left hand. Kevin: Iím trying, man. Dr. Bellezzo: I got nothing. Ashley: You kind of always hope that thereís not some injury to the spinal cord thatís causing that. Dr. Bellezzo: Sir, can you hear me? Try to wiggle your toes. Dr. Kennedy: He does not move his left side. Ashley: Theyíre consulting neurosurgery about the spine. Dr. Bellezzo: X-ray, left humerus. Dr. Kennedy: Distal third transverse humerus fracture. Male Voice: CT chest, head and C-spine. Annette, RN: CAT scan is definitely gonna be our friend in this diagnosis. Itís gonna let us know if thereís any bleeding in his brain, itís gonna let us know if thereís any injuries in his spinal cord. Female Voice: We gotta get a good picture of your spine. Male Voice: We want to make sure that your neck is not broken. Ashley: Kelly? And youíre his wife? Okay. Weíre getting CAT scans right now, heís awake, talking to us. Male Voice: You did a great job, weíre all done, ready to go, okay? Ashley: I spoke with Kelly, Iím gonna call her so you can talk to her, okay? Dr. Kennedy: He didnít have a severe injury to the brain, but he did have a fracture in his neck and it showed that he had some injury to the spinal cord. Ashley: Sheís on the phone with you right now, hon. Kevin: (unintelligible) Ashley: Kelly said that she loves you, sheíll be there as soon as she can. Dr. Paul Corey, Anesthesiologist: How you doing, Kev? Kevin: Uhhh, Iíve been better. Dr. Corey: Okay. Whatís the most bothersome thing for you? Kevin: Itís the back of my head. Dr. Corey: Uh-huh. What weíre gonna do is take you back to the operating room. Iím gonna continue talking with you and weíre gonna scoot you safely off to sleep and get all this fixed up for you. Get you back to doing what you normally do in a nice healthy way, all right? Heís got a broken neck. What we have to do is fix the laceration here so it stops the extensive blood loss without disturbing his neck. Ashely: If heís moved wrong or anything like that, it could damage the cord more. Dr. Corey: Itís not a good situation to have decreased blood flow. Weíre gonna adjust the blood flow so his organs get properly profused. And when you do that, the patients recover a lot faster. Our hospital is one of the few centers in the United States thatís doing this. Male Voice: Looking better. Dr. Corey: Part one of a long journey. Kelly: The head injury, it was really hard to see. It was, I knew that it was very large, but it was very difficult. (cries) Um... Dr. Harbinder Chadha, Orthopedic Surgeon: He broke his humerus, right about here. And the humerus has a nerve that runs right across where that fracture was. Itís intact right now. If it stops working heíll be only able to grab like that. Our goal is to get the bone realigned. The bone lines up very nicely. Two months to heal the bone (under) and another two months to... Dr. Kennedy: He still has significant deficit in terms of his ability to move his leg and foot. Dr. Ramin Bagheri, Neurosurgeon: What weíre planning to do is actually take out the C-6 vertebra and by decompressing it weíre gonna give him the best chance we can to have a full recovery. So weíre just resecting the vertebra here. When we have to resect an entire vertebra, obviously weíre working right around the spinal cord and sensitive nerves, so it is a complex operation. Weíve taken the entire vertebra out. And now weíre gonna reconstruct this with this titanium spacer. Weíre gonna gradually expand this cage a little bit. So, weíre gonna take a picture here and make sure we like the alignment. The top is good. Looks fantastic. Kelly: I was just so happy that it just wasnít their time to go. Melissa Ducey, Physical Therapy Assistant: Push, push, push, push, push. Thatís it. Good. How are you feeling right now? Kevin: I feel so successful that I, I can barely stand it. Melissa: (laughs) On three, weíre going to stand. Okay? Kevin: Okay. Melissa: One, two and three. Kevin: OhhhÖ Nurse: Nice. Nice. John, Kevin's Father: Are you smiling? Kevin: No. Nurse: Heís smiling. John: Good. Melissa: When you see patients progress, it just makes my job just that much more, like, worthwhile. I want us to try to take a couple steps. Kevin: Uhh, I canít move it. Nurse: Yeah, you can. John: Keep going, keep going. Kevin: Ahh, ahhh. Melissa: Oooh! Lean to me. Yeah, lean into that walker, there we go! And then take a step with the right. Good. Okay. Okay. There, good, good job. And just, you know, hearing him talk about his kidsÖwanting to get back home with his wife and his four kids. Itís just, itís a pretty neat experience. Kevin: I feel like I went through like a prizefight or something. Thereís not many parts of my body that donít hurt. John: I know itís hard. Thatís part of the baby step process. One step at a time. Melissa: You could just see it in his dadís eyes. Even this morning, okay, what are you guys going to do? Do you think heís going to walk? John: When he puts his mind to something and really decides thatís what he wants to do, youíd best get out of his way, or help him. There she is! Kevin: Love you Baby. Kelly: Heís an amazing father. Heís overly proud. Heís always bragging about his boys. Kevin: Those four infectious boys. Thereís something about them. John: Put your hand in his. Letís see if he can squeeze your hand. Kev, come on, yeah...I can see the fingers moving. Kelly: Itís hard. Kevin: Yeah, itís a slow process. Kelly: And Iím just amazed at how much youíre doing. Kevin: Well, I havenít exactly run the halls yet. Kelly: (Laughs) (Crowd cheering, car horn) Crowd: Welcome home Kevin! (Crowd cheering/applauding) Kevin: I missed you. Love you, bud. Luke: Thank you. Kevin: Glad to be home. Wow, thank you guys so much. (Applause) Kevin: Luke and I have a bond thatíll never be broken.
