In an instant…

September 23rd

…the whole life can change. I was walking home when my phone rang. It was my mom. I only had time to say “Hi mom” before —

Mati had a car crash there was an accident a truck drove into his lane and crashed head-on he was trapped in a car and was airlifted to the hospital has his leg crushed and head injuries is in a pharmacological coma and is in critical condition Basia is on her way to the hospital he was coming home from work when it happened Ala and Konrad are driving there too doctors don't know if he can make it he was just going home he is intubated don't tell Aga we all are just crying now

was said in one breath by my mom.

Mati is my cousin, a close member of the family. 32 years old, with a wonderful wife and two kids — one 6 and the other 2 years old. And now we just wait for any news, for any good news. Or maybe lack of any news is good news — that means he is still here, still fighting to stay here. Don't know what to say more than that. One instant and everything can change and go to hell. Potentially, numerous lives will forever be changed and destroyed. I feel too numb to think about anything now.
