At around 2:15-2:30 AM early Thursday morning, June 22nd, Nick suffered an accident while riding his motorcycle on the way home from a night out with his friends. He was less than 1/4 from being home where the accident occurred. Alcohol was not the reason. The circumstances of the accident are unclear unfortunately. Nick suffered a traumatic brain injury which included a right sided skull fracture and brain bleeding. It is assumed he was wearing his helmet at the time of the accident (since there is damage on the helmet in the same area as his injuries) but that it fell off after the initial hit and the subsequent hits caused the damage. Nick was moved to UCI Medical Center and currently resides in the surgical ICU. He remains intubated on very heavy sedation and requires a breathing tube to help him breathe. He also has a drain placed in his head to relieve swelling and pressure build-up. He has been able to move his extremities involuntarily and his pupils react appropriately, but he is unable to respond to commands as he is under so much sedation, so the extent of the damage done to his brain cannot be fully determined at this time. The expectation is that Nick will require many weeks if not months in the hospital and even longer time potentially to rehab as he is likely to have significant physical deficits. Any monetary donations or prayers are greatly appreciated as they will all be used towards his bills, medical expenses and children since he can not work. His girls need their daddy and his mom, brother and I need him as well as his entire family and friends!
