The SOP for head trauma is to sedate the patient, intubate, and administer a paralytic. Unfortunately, she regained consciousness in the helicopter en route. Unable to move or open her eyes, she thought that she was dead. She was considerably shaken.
I forgot to mention that she became a Mormon whilst she lived with her mother and then step-father several years ago. She is only 12 and she is already very well versed in all things Mormon.
I don't think she is attending their services any longer as my brother likes the Mormon "church" almost as much as he like the Catholic Church.
