Hi Morgan. It’s Kyle…Uhhhh…I, um…haha wow, already off to a bad start on this one! Shit I’m terrible at messages, or awesome depending on how you look at it. Um, I’ll just get on with it…I have some bad news, man. Pretty shitty news. Fuck. I hate to be telling you over the phone, on a message, but..uh..I guess I’ll just go for it. Well, earlier today when I was out on that hike with Sarah…I…blacked out when were were going down that super steep section with all that sharp scree. You know, where it…yeah you know–you’ve done that hike like a thousand times. Anyways, I blacked out and took a bit of a fall. I’m in the hospital now. I’m fine. I mean, from blacking out and falling. Just some little scrapes. I fucked up those blue pants though. But…actually I’m calling because. I’m here now, room 501. At the hospital. I mean room 301. Shit. But, yeah I’m not doing great actually. The reason I blacked out was. Uhhh…shit man. I hate to tell you over the damn phone…you know? The doctors say I have a…a pretty bad…um, a ruptured blood vessel in my brain. An aneurysm. It’s…not good. It’s, uhh, not in a good spot, but. I’m going in for surgery now, which is good because there’s a really high chance I’ll make a full recovery since I got in here so quick. But I go in for surgery, like in a few minutes. They said I could call some people real quick to…just in case. Fuck my head hurts. They want to operate like immediately. It’s not in a good spot, but it’s not a super massive rupture though. It’s not good though. Ha, I guess I’ve said that already. Well. Uhhh…they–there’s a good chance the surgery will go fine. They have to insert this coil thing, like up my femoral artery down in my leg, up through my A-orda, however you say it, then through my neck and up into my brain. They said it sounds worse than it is–at least it’s not like I have to have my skull cracked open or anything. It stops the bleeding. Of the broken blood vessel. I’ve got a massive headache right now. But they say the surgery should probably work out and they said I probably won’t have like any long term damage or anything………So, fuck man. I’ve gotta call mom and dad now. The nurses want me to turn the phone off pretty soon. So…I guess. Shit I don’t know how to tell them. But, damn I was hoping to get a hold of you. I just wanted to say goodbye, I mean…and that, uhhh…yeah I…well just in case, you know? Okay. I’m sure I’ll–it’ll be fine though. They said they wouldn’t operate if it was too messed up. It’s not like I’m in a coma or anything. Talk to you soon. Hope the trip is going well and say hey to everyone for me. Okay gotta go. Later.”

“Yo Kyle, saw I just missed your call. We’re on our way back down from the mountain and the hot tub is calling our names. Holy shit the snow’s been amazing. You shoulda come out here, man. We got dumped on that first night with two feet of powder. I think we’re gonna stay for another couple days and head back on Thursday because another storm is coming in tonight and it’s gonna dump again. Oh, looks like you left a message. Probably about how lame you realize you are for not coming! Ya stupid idiot! Mid terms are no excuse. With your grades you’re gonna graduate in May no matter how shitty you do this semester, but the snow might be gone for good with this damn global warming. Oh well, more for us. Later nerd.”

“Kyle, it’s Morgan. Shit dude…I just listened to your message. I’m on my way home. I’m coming back early to bring you your stuff at the hospital and–. The guys are dropping me off at the airport. I’m gonna fly back instead of drive with them. You’re probably in your surgery right now. Getting that thing shoved up your leg. Haha. I should be back soon. Okay, well. Cool I’ll see you soon then. I’m sure everything’s gonna be fine. We should, uhh, do a weekend trip once you’re better. We googled it and it doesn’t sound like the recovery is that long, so that’s good. You won’t miss out on too much of the season at least. Okay. Anyways…Later.”

Hey Kyle, I’m at the airport, but…that storm I was talking about just started and it’s hitting pretty hard right now and all the flights are delayed for fucking ever. Nothing leaves until tomorrow morning they’re saying. At the earliest. It’s just going nuts here. Hey give me a call when you wake up. Mom and dad are a bit worried. I called them and told them what was going on since I guess you didn’t get a chance to call them. They’re on their way out there now too. Okay, later.”

“Hey Kyle. Shit I guess you’re probably resting now. I’m just getting on the plane. Mom and Dad got delayed too from the storm. It got all the way out west to home and messed up the flights there too. They’re getting in a few hours after me I think. Okay, gotta go. I’ll be at the hospital at around two or three or so. Give us a call when you’re up.
