Update from Antonio's mom:
So here is a brief rundown of Antonio Vega's injuries. From head to toe (literally).
Broken eye socket and other minor fractures to his face
His right shoulder is destroyed and will require surgery
His right elbow was exposed
He has multiple fractured ribs
His sternum is fractured
His right femur is broken
his right big toe is broken
his right knee was torn open and his PCL is torn away
his left femur is fractured in a weird triangle pattern
his left tibia is fractured and went through the skin
and he has a vast array of cuts and bruises.
The nurse said they lost count as to how many stitches he has. The doctor said they are watching for shock symptoms. He has an increased risk for infection because of the exposed joints. No brain swelling at this time and no spinal injury is evident at this time. When he wakes up they will start to get him to move his fingers/toes and whatnot.
I forgot to add that they drained the blood from his lung and it expanded again. Also, he has a bruise on the front wall of his aorta.
