A long night.

Good morning. You will find some stunning news beneath the fold, but I will note that everything is OK on this morning.

Javi was hit by a car yesterday, coming back from a job interview on the campus of Providence College.

It was a hit-and-run. The suspect vehicle is a red Toyota Corolla, but I don't think the police have a plate.

Javi was rushed to Providence Hospital, and by the time we got there, he was upright, alert, conscious, and breathing. No broken bones, no internal injuries, and only minor physical wounds. There's some bruising, and he does have a fair scalp injury that required 11 stitches.

CAT scans did show a small brain bruise, but according to the neurosurgeon, it could just as easily be an imaging anomaly. Javi was disoriented and confused, and is suffering some short-term memory loss. Common symptoms of a concussion.

But over the course of the evening, he was showing slow signs of improvement. A second scan (at 1 am, I might add!) showed no changes or other cause for alarm, so he was discharged.

Instead of back to campus, we took him home. He is under head injury protocol right now (non-NFL fans could look that up), and we're optimistic he can get back to campus by the end of the week.

Yes, an interesting night indeed. Again - JAVI IS OK.
